My Kitchen Rules – Chloe And Kelly Show They Do Have Some Skills
Is David a fake contestant, like an actor, as no one can be that much of a knob jockey. Last night at Chloe and Kelly’s instant restaurant he was contrary about everything including a dish that scored ten from the judges.
Also he admitted to playing tactics when he said to the camera that the intruders were new to the game and were looking for positives.
Some of his more over the top comments last night were when he saw the entree of Poached Marron on Crab Pillow and Truffle Emulsion that it was just basic stuff. After he ate it he thought the pasta was too dry, there was a shell in his ravioli and he could not taste the truffle. He declared it below average.
No wonder Corinne doesn’t say anything as she is probably speechless with embarrassment. Or maybe that is why she is always trying to go the pash at the table just to try and stop him talking for a moment.
Chloe and Kelly kicked off their second instant restaurant feeling very confident and it was all going smoothly until Chloe started trying to roll out the pasta. It appeared to be more the machine then her as it was clunking and it seemed strange that she did not attempt to roll it out with a rolling pin. All those Italian Nonna’s in years gone past would not have had fandangled machines to make it.
In the end Chloe re-made the pasta just before the judges were about to arrive and it would have been interesting to know how late their entree was on the table. It was a good move as Manu thought it was a three hat dish and both judges scored it ten. The dish did look amazing.
However it was all downhill from there. When will the contestants realise they don’t know as much as the judges. Kelly insisted to Manu she could confit the chicken in 45 minutes when he said it took him two hours to do. But she appeared to not be taking in the time she needed it under the grill. In the end it was not crisp enough.
They did not spend a lot of time on the confit but allowed a hell of a long time for the accompanying mushroom sauce. David thought mushroom and chicken was a strange combination. WTF? He is deluded in his food knowledge but it was amusing when he said that he saw Josh from Victoria as a worthy table mate as he knows about food as well.
To be fair there are some people competing who appear to know bugger all. Manu stupidly asked Harry what confit was and he had no idea. Also the food technology teacher Carly thought cannoli was cannelloni. Maybe this pair are a perfect match. That is if Harry has a kewpie doll fetish as she looked like one last night.
The main was also served with brussel sprouts and speck and surprisingly Pete Evans liked the chicken and the mushroom but thought the sprouts were under cooked. I thought he would be into undercooked vegetables. Manu loved the sauce.
David thought the brussel sprout was almost offensive clearly lacking the insight to realise that was what he was. Anna thought the main was pleasant which made David wonder what they had been eating on the farm.
However positive Carly did not like it either. She gave it a complimentary sandwich, which is two positives sandwiching a negative comment. She also revealed she taught at university as well.
The WA girls thought their cannoli with orange and chocolate was traditional Italian dessert. It is but it is no longer that exotic. These days you are more likely to see that in a cake shop then a vanilla slice. In fact what has happened to vanilla slices?
They served the cannoli with an espresso martini and Manu said he found the dessert to be disappointing and boring. Pete said he enjoyed the cannoli but not the martini as he found it over powering.
Cathy who hates sweet, sweets liked it.
It was cold and raining and as the diners were sitting outside you wonder if this affected their scoring:
Carly and Tresne – 7
Anna and Cathy – 6
Josh and Danielle – 5
Christo and Harry – 5
David and Corinne – 4
Total score 27
Manu gave the entree a ten, six for main, and four from Manu and Pete gave the entree a ten, six for main, five for dessert.
Chloe and Kelly scored a total of 68. Sure they are currently bottom of the leader board but going off the two previous instant restaurant rounds they would be unlucky if they were eliminated.
