My Kitchen Rules – Jessica And Bree Delivered A Sophisticated Menu
Finally a team with a complex menu on My Kitchen Rules delivered. Jessica and Bree the mum’s from South Australia put on a sophisticated fine dining menu in the instant restaurant ‘Sage’ and it looked delicious.
In fact David from Queensland was more positive about it then all of the diners not even criticising the dessert.
The entree was Scallops with Bittergreens and Stilton Dressing. It was interesting that most of the diners were unaware what stilton was and no one noticed the scallops were imported from Japan.
Pete loved it so much that he said he wished he could give it eleven. He said the sweetness of the scallops, combined with the sharpness of the sauce and the saltiness of the pancetta made it the best dish in the competition so far. Have to agree who would think of pairing scallops with blue cheese. Pete might think about not being so generous with the scoring early in the competition so it gives him room to move.
Some of the younger diners were also a bit of confused about what the main was. On the menu it said Salt Dough Chateaubriand with Bernaise Sauce and Pomme Frites. As Jess said it was Steak and Fries. It looked delicious and perfectly cooked. When Bree revealed she had never cooked salt dough with beef you wondered whether there would be a disaster but there was none.
The girls were panicking about only buying two fillets of beef when they meant to get four but there was no way they could fit more in the oven. It did not matter they had enough.They also just walked into the house at the 3 hour mark and they set the table in 20 minute. Yeah right.
The girls were on time even with starting their prep late. The diners were in jovial moods joking when Jess saw the steak knife she told Christos and Harry that is what they needed to cut the veal in their restaurant. The Vic boys looked insulted.
David was also in a good mood probably because they were safe. However what is interesting is Corinne waits to see what David is going to say and then nods her head in agreement.
The main got rave reviews from everyone though Manu said the Bernaise sauce was not perfect and could have been thicker. Pete said delicious.
What let the girls down was their dessert of Raspberry Mousse Cake they decided to put chocolate mud as a layer rather then a chocolate sponge and it was far too dense with the raspberry mousse on top. However David thought it was delicious.
The scores were high:
Tas – 8
Qld – 9
WA – 8
Vic – 8
NSW – 8
For a total 41/50
Pete gave ten points for entree, ten for main, a five for dessert.
Manu gave ten for entree, a nine for main, a five for dessert.
This gave them a total of 90 points which put them at the top of the scoreboard.
