My Kitchen Rules – Harry and Christo Decide Not To Cook Anything
Meme from FACEBOOK.
Harry and Christo must have decided last night not to cook anything. That was OK for their entree of Tuna Carpaccio but not so great for the Wagyu Beef and Espresso Creme Brulee.
The boys were up against Vikki and Helena in a sudden death cook-off and the girls decided to stick with their Greek heritage and cook Mussels Saganaki, Moussaka for main and a Raspberry Banana Cakes with Sweet Dukkah and lemon curd for dessert. I note this is the second time they have dished up lemon curd as they served it with their honey balls in one of the food truck challenge.
Even though at this point of the competition the twins are not really a cooking force they were not going to have any trouble knocking Harry and Christo out unless they started chopping their fingers off in prep. They didn’t.
Even though the judges praised the Tuna Carpaccio even though it had raw garlic and a mound of chilli on it the rest of their dishes were a mess. In fact they were told it was dish of the day.
The steak main was inedible as Harry decided to cook it rare not taking into account that Wagyu is fatty and he did not render the fat off it. In fact Colin Fassnidge did not hold back and said the only thing edible on the plate was the Bernaise Sauce. The chips were soggy and no one was really eating the beans either.
Their dessert of Espresso Creme Brulee was not cooked long enough and was a liquid mess. The judges were too kind and said it had great flavours. Liz Egan, Karen Martini and Manu and Pete were far too generous in their scoring giving the boys are six. Colin Fassnidge gave the most realistic score of a four considering only one course was edible.
The twins food was given a fair review. The Saganaki was good, Karen Martini liked the Moussaka but thought it was too oily whereas Liz did not think it was a problem. However all the judgest thought their Cake with Cream Cheese Icing was pedestrian and more like a cup cake rather than dessert. They easily scored 40 points which thankfully knocked out Harry and Christo. Viewers were sighing a collective thank God, but Tassie girl Bianca was having to blink away tears.
