The third week of heats begins with six more chefs hoping to impress judges Gregg, Monica and Marcus. In the skills test, Monica demands three chefs make carbonara with fresh tagliatelle.
If you know how, it’s very simple, but not all the chefs believe in less is more and make a right mess. Marcus’s skills test is anything but simple – taramasalata made from scratch with crab and scallops.
One poor chef has never even heard of taramasalata, so you can imagine what a pickle he gets himself into. Finally, the chefs have 90 minutes to impress with their signature dish.
But it’s a mixed bag of dishes and the judges don’t hold back with their criticism.
