My Kitchen Rules – Did The Best Team Win?
Not sure how fair these restaurants are when the diners get to pick the winner by the amount of cash they pay. It does not look like the best team won last night.
The white team won but their dishes attracted far more criticism from the judges then the black team’s did.
The white team were told their entree of Chilled Cucumber Soup and Cerviche of Scallops was told was “a good start” and Thalia and Bianca were praised for their dessert of Orange Syrup Cake with caramelised pineapple. But most of the other dishes were criticised. Just about all of Bree and Jessica’s Sake Poached Pears were sent back as they were too hard. The judges also were not fans of the dish and said it lacked flavour.
Uel and Shannelle’s Fried Chicken dish was criticised for the lack of flavour in the noodle salad as was the Umami broth in Josh and Danielle’s Sirloin steak dish.
Whereas the black teams entree and mains were all praised. The only dish that attracted criticism was Cathy and Anna’s Macadamia Tart. It was too sweet. They were unlucky to lose. Sure in service the Dukkah Salmon was sent back because it was undercooked but if it was the judges decision then it looked like they would have backed the black team in.
Some other quick thoughts on the episode:
Uel and Shannelle’s advantage was to pick their team and then they went and selected Harry and Christo. What? They even admitted they were not great cooks;
Harry was having a hard team filling up his restaurant but this may have been more to do with it being in the blazing sun and the black team’s being more in the shade;
It is hard to know who is the biggest control freak in the competition – Anna or Bree?
Vikki and Helena barely hid their disdain for Chloe and Kelly when they were cooking with them – snarking behind their back;
What is with lamb being cooked rare or raw and the teams thinking that is fine, thankfully Colin Fassnidge picked this up and told them to cook it more.
There is going to be five strong teams going head to head in the challenge tonight to avoid landing in the elimination challenge. I think Jason and Annie will flounder.
Apologies for lack of posts over weekend and this morning I am having computer issues.
