My Kitchen Rules – Some Teams Soaring Other Floundering
It was team versus team last night in their bid to stay out of the sudden death cook off on My Kitchen Rules. Bree and Jessica who were the next highest earners in the pop up restaurant after the now immune Paul and Blair, got to choose who they would cook off against. Surprisingly they chose Tahlia and Bianca who have shown they are better cooks then their age would suggest. As they got to pick the protein the Tassie girls were strategic and picked game meat. Interesting choice considering they only had 30 minutes to cook it in. Bree and Jessica made Thai Duck Salad, and Tahlia and Bianca made Deep Fried Spiced Squab. They had never cooked with squab before and by keeping it simple meant they beat Bree and Jessica.
Cathy and Anna got to pick next and they chose Vikki and Helena guessing that they would want to cook with lamb and they were right. Cathy and Anna made Rack of Lamb with Olive Tapenade and the twins made Za’tar Crusted Lamb with Beetroot Salad. The twins were taking a risk cooking beetroot but put it in a very hot oven to ensure it would cook in 30 minutes. However then when it came to cooking the lamb they had to ask Cathy and Anna to share their oven. They kindly said yes. Though in hindsight they may not have as Vikki and Helena kept on opening and closing the door. This mean it took longer for the lamb to cook and of course did not give Cathy and Anna enough time to rest their meat something they about. They plated up pink lamb as did the twins, but Cathy and Anna’s dish was judged to be the better.
Josh and Danielle were up against Chloe and Kelly. For once I have to agree with Kelly, who yawned at their Pan Fried Barramundi in Thai Coconut Broth. The WA girls made Stuffed Sardines. Josh is portrayed as a control freak in the kitchen telling his girlfriend he will be the one doing the cooking. Even thought he was told by Pete Evans that he could eat this dish day in and day out they were beaten by Chloe and Kelly whose dish was declared “fantastic”.
The couple were having to cook against the twins and Bree and Jessica.
Each of the teams had to choose to cook either an entree, main or dessert. Josh and Danielle were stuck with the main but this turned out to be a positive thing. They showed risotto does not have to be a death dish as judges Manu and Pete said their Scampi version was the best dish they had this series. Clearly they were safe.
Bree and Jessica made Cavatelli with Cauliflower Sauce with Jessica making some beautiful pasta but the sauce which Bree was in charge off was thought to be too dry. Also dry was Vikki and Helena’s Frangipane Tart with Manu choking on the crumbs.
In the end it was decided the Pasta dish was the least palatable and Bree and Jessica have been sent to face Carly and Tresne in the sudden death cook off.
