Episode 43: Bite-Sized Recap


It was “Death by Chocolate” for the midwives who were pushed out of the competition after the pub mates presented a faultless dessert.

Teams must cook a trio of meat in 90mins - the same type of meat, cooked three different ways, presented on the one plate. However, there were only four meats for the teams to choose from: 2 x beef, 2 x chicken, 2 x pork and 2 x lamb, with a variety of cuts. Della & Tully have the advantage of choosing the order in which teams choose their preferred protein as they had the Dish of the Day at the last Quarter Final. The team that creates the best trio of meat has a big advantage the next time they cook. The two weakest teams will cook again today in a one dish Sudden Death and one team will be eliminated.

Amy & Tyson: Wagyu Steak with Onion Cream / Oxtail with Tarragon Mash / Crumbed Minute Steak
David & Betty: Banh Mi Chicken Taco / Larb Gai / Chicken Wonton Soup
Della & Tully: Pulled Pork Donut with Apple / Pork Belly with Sweet Potato / Pork Fillet with Pea Puré
Mark & Chris: Rolled Chicken with Mushroom Puré / Chicken Lollipops with Parsnip Puré / Lemon Garlic Chicken Wing
Valerie & Courtney: Shish Kebab with Paratha and Mint Chutney / Lamb Masala with Clove Rice / Lamb Mulligatawny
Karen & Ros: Pork Shoulder with Polenta / Crispy Pork Belly / Pork Cutlet with Pickled Apple
& Kyle: Spaghetti and Meatballs / Beef Parmigiana / Peppered Beef


The two weakest teams have 90mins to create three taste sensations that are complete in themselves, but work together on the one plate.

Tim & Kyle's Yoghurt Mousse with Caramelised Pineapple and Balsamic Strawberries / Dark Chocolate Mousse with Pear and Sweet Dukkah / Ricotta Mousse with Grilled Peaches and Honey Thyme Syrup

Karen & Ros' Fudgy Chocolate Cake with Raspberry Coulis / Chocolate Chilli Mousse with Raspberries / Chocolate Crumb with Balsamic Strawberries and Mascarpone


Karen: “We’ve had the most wonderful experience. We are just so pleased that we have come this far in the competition and we are really proud of ourselves. We just loved every minute, we are really so privileged to have been part of My Kitchen Rules. This has been the ride of a lifetime.”

Ros: “It’s just been an all-round total amazing experience. We feel really privileged to have experienced it.”

Karen: “We’re going back home to our beautiful family and friends and instead of delivering beautiful food we’re going back to delivering beautiful babies.”
