The dishes range from delicious and healthy to the sumptuous and decadent. The Tea-smoked Duck recipe here is the creation of Jac and Shaz who shot to fame in the series. Their delicious recipe for Red Velvet with Chocolate and Raspberries also features in the book, along with other favourites. To make the cranberry sauce, stir all the ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat until the sugar has dissolved. Simmer until the cranberries have broken down and mixture is soft and slightly thickened. Season with black pepper and blend until smooth, then pass through a sieve. Cook the fennel for approximately 15 minutes, or until tender. Add the stock and cream and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes, or until the fennel is very soft. Strain and reserve the liquid. Blend again.

But the couple from Tasmania, who cooked a three-course meal of pork rice paper rolls, seafood chowder and chocolate marquise, moved on from the show to something much more exciting: their wedding last Sunday! We spoke with Andy to get the low-down on their big day, heated on-camera moments and the pressure he felt as the seafood king. Congratulations on making it to the semis of My Kitchen Rules, but more importantly congrats on getting married!

Are MKR’s Emma and Steve dating? Ex-wife of My Kitchen Rules contestant Adam Anderson calls him a ‘deadbeat dad The 97 of the locations that will be open as part of the Open House Melbourne have been announced.

Even though it’s got that Manu Feildel in it, that beardy-weirdy Frenchy host, who everyone thinks is so cute and Frenchy with his doughy choux-pastry complexion and his boo’i’ful uh-uhhh-UHHHH h’accent. But I know the truth, I know the real Manu. Said it on national TV. In front of everyone. What a shameless sleazer. Thankfully none of the contestants heard him, though I did notice the swingery couple from WA perk up slightly, accidentally spurting mascarpone cream all over their sticky date pud.

Even though it’s got that other host in it, that Pete Evans guy, who seems nice enough, who seems friendly enough, who seems like a perfectly pleasant bipedal humanoid with a permanently fixed latex grin and unblinkable robo-eyes embedded in an elasto-silicone face. But he’s not so nice. I saw that ep in season two of My Kitchen Rules when Pete tasted a beef dish with red wine sauce, then rolled his blue-glass eyes in their degree gyro-reticulated sockets and extended his telescopic hyper-stalk-neck to full height, then said without any provocation or reason, ”Uhhhh … I’m not so crazy about the Chassidic Jews.

Couldn’t believe it. My wife reckoned he actually said he’s not crazy about ”the acidic jus”, but I know the sinister truth – somebody had secretly programmed an anti-Semitic directive into the central microprocessor of PETE Powered Elite Tasting Engine. Even though the instant-restaurant challenges are like having a dinner party in your own home and inviting a bunch of your most fiendish friends and cooking your guts out for them, then all they do for the whole night is sit there, poking at your pav, smirking at your scallops, and eating with loud disgusting chewing noises, smrshhh smrrrrrrrsh, like an old man gumming on macaroni.

And any time you leave the room, they all lean in and bitch behind your back, going ”Personally, I wouldn’t have done a citrus vinaigrette on the marron” or ”The mashed potatoes were liquid, how DO you get mashed potatoes wrong? Why am I watching a third season of My Kitchen Rules?

Daily Life. Old habits appear to be dying hard on reality television right now. But a worrying tone is on the verge of becoming a persistent problem as the show increasingly makes it the norm to frame outsiders to the Anglo-Saxon Australian experience, especially women, as villains. The fourth season of Channel Seven’s cooking reality show, which is the top-rating television show in Australia, has produced a succession of carefully constructed characters defined by the offence their ambition and vituperative criticism causes.

Great TV is starting to become more than a touch gruesome. The series found its first flashpoint in , with high school friends from NSW Jessie Khan and Biswa Kamila, a pair with southern Asian heritage whose self-confidence and overexcitement swiftly turned to finagling when their dinner party for their fellow contestants and the judges ended with a disastrously low score.

They could be horrid, yet somehow also jolly, and it was only with their final episodes that they began to really grate, even as they boosted the already domineering ratings. There is more at stake here than ratings. Khan and Kamila were subject to an expletive-laden barrage of racist abuse and death threats on social media, and the perception appeared to be that because they were on TV they were fair game.

A fear of otherness has always lurked in the Australian psyche, exhibited towards both those here before white settlement and those who arrived in more recent waves, and it doesn’t need stirring. Scott Cam is a personable host, but his cracks about the female halves in teams disappearing to shop when the deadline pressure is on are becoming repetitive.

This season Nev — from Battlers duo Nev and Kell — is perfectly placed to fill the crucial role of the wisecracking knockabout Aussie bloke. Why are only gay men and women the villains on this show?

Look out for: Jessica discovering it is in fact really hard to cook good food for a tableful of people who appear to hate your guts.

Every season must have a pair of mad Mediterraneans laughing and crying their way through every dinner in equal measure. Think Helena and Vikki, the winsome wogs from , and Celine and Vicky, the gregarious Greeks from last year. Just watch them melt like butter when they hear his heart-throb French accent for the first time. Look out for: the miners quivering with disappointment when their food truck-inspired single origin quinoa wraps served on slate platters with kale smoothies in mason jars fail to excite the judges.

Melbourne’s Thomas and Carla were the fourth team eliminated from the popular cooking show after suffering a complete kitchen meltdown. The mates were easily beaten by Tasmania’s Megan and Andy in the sudden death cook-off, in which the teams were asked to create dishes which showcased the key Queensland ingredients of Moreton Bay bugs, macadamia nuts and mangoes. In the initial instant restaurant stage of the series, contestants are expected to score each other’s dishes based on merit.

Thomas, a podiatrist, and Carla, a speech pathologist, earned the ire of many viewers and some of their fellow contestants after voting strategically in the instant restaurant elimination round to keep themselves in the competition. Despite failing to impress hosts Pete Evans and Manu Feildel with their lamb koftas at their first instant restaurant, the pair decided to make the Middle Eastern dish again in tonight’s cook-off.

As their Paneer cheese and macadamia koftas fell apart, so did the team with Thomas shouting “We’re going home”. While their win-at-all-costs approach put them at odds with the judges, Feildel acknowledged Thomas and Carla had improved as cooks during their time on the show. Tomorrow night, the remaining eight teams are asked to prepare a seafood banquet fit for a king. Crime Keep your wits about you if you own one of these 10 cars. It might just drive away!
