My Kitchen Rules – Harry And Christo Finally Go To Sudden Death
In a surprising twist on My Kitchen Rules Harry and Christo don’t make Honey Soy Chicken wings when they are told they had to make a chicken dish. They made Chicken Laksa to showcase their skill set. Harry was insisting he made it all the time but I presume this was probably with a pre-made curry paste.
It was the chicken or the egg challenge with two teams having to cook eggs and the other two chicken.
Chloe and Kelly were up against Carly and Tresne. The WA girls made Middle Eastern Eggs With Couscous. They were hoping to also make aioli made with quail yolks. Probably not the most practical idea ever and as expected did not come off. Carly and Tresne were making Thai Egg Nets with Pork and Prawn. The flavour of their dish was great but the egg net was just egg and not very flavoursome. Pete Evans pointed out that normally it is flavoured with fish sauce and palm sugar. The WA girls eggs which were drenched in smoked paprika must have been bad as it was nominated as the worse dish of the day. Even though Carly and Tresne did not showcase the egg they won the egg battle. Manu told them the flavour they brought to the dish brought it to the next level. Then he muttered something so indecipherable that even rewinding three times could not reveal what it was. Subtitles please.
The judges picked Josh and Danielle’s Chicken Two Ways over Harry and Christo’s “flavourless” Chicken Laksa. Even though the fried chicken was undercooked, Josh and Danielle have strong techniques and at this stage of the competition must be one of the favourites to win. The only other couples coming close would be Bree and Jessica, Blair and Paul and possibly the Tassie girls, but I think their repetoire might stop them in their tracks later in the competition.
Chloe after having a little weep as she thought the quail dish was good pulled herself together for the cook off against Harry and Christo. The girls made Japanese Poached Chicken and even though I am not a huge fan of the girls I was hoping they would not undercook the meat as this would give Harry and Christo to be safe again. They didn’t and Manu praised their broth and the chicken but did say the crispy chicken skin was over done.
Christo told Manu their Tortilla Espanola with chorizo it was their best presented dish in the competiton and that he had ” given you pretty much what I have got on a plate”. Manu and Pete turned and smirked at each other. Pete Evan’s said the tortilla was humble and simple but he added that in Spain normally has onion in it. Manu said he loved the sauce that was full of flavour but the tortilla was not strong enough in flavour or technique at this stage of the competiton. They were sent to sudden death. There is a reality TV God.
