Food is love, food is life.
No matter where we come from, a love of delicious food surely unites us all and we've all wished we could whip up something truly sensational.
We have all probably tried our hand at becoming a cuisine master, at home, or believe we are the next Jamie Oliver. Some of us even take to reality television to get our budding start, because we've all seen how well that goes for our fave Aussie upcoming tv produced cooks.
Well, it's My Kitchen Rules season again and most of us are in our element.
- We get to see how scrum-diddly-umptious foods are made.
- We get entertained by out there personalities.
- We get to be Pete or Manu from our home couch, critiquing the hell out of every dish we see.
Thankfully we don't have to sit through the hours long dinners the contestants have to, but unfortunately we don't get to taste all the dishes either.
All this only futher fuels our passion for food and the thought of joining the show has probably crossed all of our minds.
But last night's episode might have crushed all our food dreams, because they all proved just how darn tough it all is... especially considering Ash and Bek were delivered the LOWEST score in MKR history.
The score was a dish better served cold.
The Perth flatmates spent the night cooking up a storm and boasting about their flirting skills, with Bek explaining the two had a dream to marry cooks and have amazing dinner parties together.
Obvs we all want that, too.
The girls rushed around to get all of their ingredients together for the night ahead of them, but time quickly got away from them.
Considering the previous MKR dinners hadn't been a hit, Bek and Ash had big shoes to fill to step up their game.
With a 'Wildfields' music festival-themed restaurant, how could they go wrong?
Well, Bek seemed to have love on the brain, instead of food, saying, "I'm really worried that if Kyle in fact fancies me and I cook him something hideous he's going to be like 'ew I'm not going to marry her.' So I guess it's my future on the line."
After dashing to prepare the vegetables (they feared the pumpkin would be undercooked), bake the pastry (which wouldn't mix properly), get all glammed up and greet the guests, the girls had a rough night of kitchen brutality to try and pump out the perfect meals.
Sadly, on this fated night the girl's flirting skills were seemingly more impressive than those in the kitchen.
Manu had a not-so-postive bit of feedback for the entree, saying it tasted mostly like garlic.
But hey, at least there would be no vampires around, right?
Two hours later, their fish was served to the guests and they were slammed for the taste and presentation of the dish. Strike two.
Manu stated, "There's nothing complicated here and you made it so complicated."
Tbh Manu, cooking can be complicated for ALL of us. We aren't award-winning chefs (well, in our own homes we are).
Strike three came when the profiteroles weren't on point, but Pete thought it was the dish of the night.
The last blow came when the scores rolled in:
- The guests scored the girls 17 out of 50.
- The judges gave a score of 9.
The girls certainly made history, because their score of 26 was the lowest in MKR EVER.
Our chef dreams suddenly seem very out of reach...
But we can prove we have what it takes.
