For entree, Bree and Jessica cooked Mushroom Wontons with Prawns and Hot & Sour Broth. This entree was “wow”. It had a bang of flavour straight off the bat. It was a “perfect” dish for some judges, but for others their was too much chilli. Pete could “eat this every day”.
Helena and Vikki cooked Scampi Ceviche with Carrot Purée and Watercress Salad. The scampi was gorgeous and the ceviche was done really well. The salad was nice and peppery but the carrot puree didn’t really belong on the dish. The butter made the dish too heavy and creamy, olive oil would have been a better option.
Bree and Jessica cooked Smoked Duck Breast with Seared Scallops and Asian Greens. From the start, the presentation of the dish was a bit “pedestrian” and “lack lustre”. The duck breast was perfectly cooked and subtly smokey. Manu (and some other judges) wanted more sauce. It was a silly mistake for a semi final.
Helena and Vikki cooked Quail with Stuffed Vine Leaves and Avgolemono Sauce. The quail was cooked perfectly. It was “absolutely gorgeous”. The Vine leaves were a bit thought but gave another texture. Pete couldn’t fault the dish, it was simply “sensational”.
Helena and Vikki cooked Burnt Butter Custard with Coffee and Almonds (Kourabiedes). The team was applauded for thinking on their feet but the texture of the dish was “wrong”
Bree and Jessica cooked Peach & Apricot Tarte Tatin with Cinnamon Ice Cream. There is no picture for this dessert. This Tarte Tatin was brilliant. Manu was “Gobsmacked” and didn’t have words for the dish.
