It is back to Number 32 on My Kitchen Rules Ultimate Instant Restaurant round tonight with Carmine and Lauren. Can they beat Tasia and Gracia’s high score of 85 to make it to the top?
For entree the team are making vitello tinnato and duck breast with figs and vincotto.
For main Carmine and Lauren are making beef cheek ravioli and lamb rack with crispy polenta and pea puree.
Finally, for dessert Carmine and Lauren are making Tartufo and Citrus Sfogliatella.
The team are quick at coles, they come back and quickly get their beef cheek into the pressure cooker and the duck breast into suvee bags and their pasta in the fridge. This gets them set up for each of their courses.
The guests arrive and they’ve got their raviolli done and their sfogliatella rolled.
It’s on to main.
Lauren get’s the pasta out, they’ve laid them on blue chux on top of trays. They’re sticking, when Carmine tries to separate them to get them into the pot, they tear. Lauren is able to save some of the ravioli by putting extra flour on them. They plate up their dishes and take them out to the judges.
Lauren andCarmine get back into the kitchen to prepare their desserts. Lauren rolls the chocolate ice-cream into balls and then into crumbed hazelnuts. The decide to serve the tartufo in a glass topped with a disk of chocolate that will dissolve and melt when hot caramel sauce is poured on top. Next Lauren cuts and forms the pastry for the sfogliatelle and she fills them with the ricotta mix. They place them into the oven until they are golden brown. They dust them with icing sugar and plate them up. Lauren is having trouble with the chocolate disks for the tartufo, they won’t come out of the moulds and they keep braking. They have to make more tempered chocolate. She gets the chocolate on the pan to the right temperature, spreads it out again and puts it in the fridge, this time it worked. They accompanied it with hot caramel to melt the disc of chocolate on top.
