After using most of their time to drive 9,000kms to find some fish, the ladies ran into their kitchen to see the clock counting down. They only had about two hours until the other teams arrived for dinner. Their entree was a roasted vegetable tart with a balsamic glaze.
“Our game plan tonight is to try and manage our time as well as we can,” Bek said, as Ash started dicing a beetroot. Suddenly an hour and 40 minutes had gone by, and the guests were set to arrive in 20. Ash was still dicing beetroot.
Noting feedback from the judges of dishes being under-seasoned, the pair mentioned that they planned to season the HELL out of their dishes. "We're going to season it with a lot of garlic," they said, completely misunderstanding what seasoning a dish actually means.
As time entirely escaped them, the girls took stock of their entree. The pastry wasn't correct, the roasted vegetables were sloppy, but their cream cheese filling was fine, and the bag of rocket they opened didn't spontaneously combust into spiders.
No one liked the dish. The judges urged the ladies to head back to the kitchen and impress them with their mains.
