Tamara won the cook off with the Mac and Cheese against the boys.
Tamara had one out of 4 choices of making a herb the star of the dish. From the song Rosemary and thyme. That’s right the star of the herbs, Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme.
Firstly this needs to be be addressed, Shannon had white shoes on tonight not the cool fly net red ones that from a distance look like crocs but where really cool nikes.
Tamara on her way to making a dish she is very good at – dumplings with a rosemary and roast chicken broth. Shannon advised to work on the broth first to get more flavour but Tamara wanted to get the dough right for the dumplings or there is no dish – good move – who will know.
15 minutes later Clinton started as cool as Tom Cruise on Top Gun.
Explaining a part of his dish with an orange pit puree, picked mushroom, rosemary ash with lamb.
With so many elements to put on the plate with true experienced chef style he gets everything on the dish. 5 minutes to go and Clinton is so relaxed.
Shannon advised Tamara to make a crunchy piece from the wantons – great idea with two crunchy elements and a broth.
Scoring is so close and Tamara missed out by one point. She can hold her head up high with a fantastic dish.
