Yeah, yeah, their food was pretty good, but the ‘mums’ on MKR last night had a secret weapon, and we know what it was…
South Australian mums Bree and Jessica served up their Instant Restaurant last night on My Kitchen Rules and boy, was it amazing. We think we know why they did so well and it has nothing to do with the fact they decided to mop the floor while making dessert.
I’ve been eagerly anticipating Adelaide mums Bree and Jessica. Finally it was their turn to dish out their Instant Restaurant last night. They’ve been playing their cards pretty close to their chests and fellow contestants weren’t expecting much from them, perhaps some nice, homely cooking.
They couldn’t have been more shocked by what these two amazing mums served.
From the scallops to steak and chips to raspberry mousse to comparing their perfectly cooked beef with childbirth, these two mums delivered and it’s because they were able to stay calm as their Instant Restaurant threatened to descend into chaos.
Potential disaster number two: Finding fresh, local scallops
Potential disaster number three: Trying to cook challenging salt dough beef for main with the dough having to rest for an hour
Potential disaster number four: Misplacing half of the beef then realising they hadn't actually bought them
Potential disaster number five: The smoke alarm going off while they were preparing the entree
Potential disaster number six: The scallops not all caramelising consistently
Potential disaster number seven: Not knowing whether the beef was cooked then realising it was perfect.
Funnily enough it was the dish they didn't have any trouble with that the judges didn't like, which was the dessert. Raspberry mousse served on a mud cake base proved a little to confusing for Pete and Manu, and fair enough. The mums normally made this dessert with sponge cake. They broke a golden rule of all cooking shows when they decided to change what was already a delicious dessert into something more impressive, and failed. Still, we can't fault them for the assumption that chocolate goes with everything. It does, almost.
