We were invited back to the house of horrors last night for a chance to see VIC friends Harry and Christo redeem themselves from their failed first instant restaurant. If you remember, there were cut fingers, dropped eggs, broken pastry, exploding pastry weights….what could have gone wrong did go wrong. Surely, this time round, they’d have more luck.
Taking note from Carly, the boys have opted for a positive vibe and zen like calmness for the night. As Harry states “We’re here to cook, not cry”.
That is until the power goes out.
Thankfully when the power came back on (one of the camera crew must have accidentally tripped a fuse) the food prep is fine and no one was injured. The guests all arrive and i’m saddened to see no edible menus – Josh and Danielle really did set the bar high with that one.
Best Dish of The Night: Hunger! A THREE HOUR wait between entree and main (now where are those edible menus?) saw some of the contestants go a little insane. David offered up the ‘severed moving finger’ gag (to which Danielle claims to have NEVER SEEN BEFORE?!), Carly offered up a joke “What color is a burp? Burple!” while Kelly showed along with a jaw that unhinges, she also have no joints in her arms or shoulders.
The Food Overall: A giant step up from the boys first attempt, though I’d love to know who told Harry that pheasant only needs 15 minutes to roast in the oven. A simple Google search tells me pheasant needs a minimum of 40-50 minutes in an oven that isn’t opened every 5 minutes. Their entree was the only let down of the night. Calamari and dressed rocket was too simple and too bland but the dessert of crumble filled stone fruit with ice cream (made with sugar – well done Christo!) impressed most.
The Final Result: Easily made it through to the next round allowing David to offer some impressive and well practiced eye rolls. The massive time delays for food saw some points taken off, giving the boys a total score of 65.
Next Up: We’re back in sunny QLD with David and Corinne (yay?) who are aiming for the highest score ever in MKR history, but first they need to pop a bottle of champers and he needs his trousers ironed. Will the ‘Queen of Seafood’ regain her throne? Will David poison Harry and Christo’s food? Will there be enough chairs for all the guests?
My Kitchen Rules – David and Corinne airs tonight, Channel 7 at 7:30pm!
