1. In each mystery box is a Rubik’s cube. Andy wants them to get “inspo” from the colour of one of the sides.
    It does not have to be a dish all in one colour – Jock says the blue could remind them of the ocean, which in turn inspires a dish.
    Tenuous indeed.

  2. Emelia goes red, with a strawberry dessert.
    Rey Rey green for nature inspo.
    Callum orange for a dessert using orange ingredients.
    Poh is making Malaysian nonya curry for red.
    Reece picks yellow for lemon tart (one of my fave desserts but the lemon has to smack you in the face – no sweet tarts for me). To go with it is a saffron vanilla ice cream.

  3. For mine, if they didn’t have to make a dish coloured as per their colour choice what is the real challenge for them as cooks? Really.
    Poh was the only one who didn’t make any real effort to create a ‘coloured’ dish. Sbe made one of her family dishes. The other’s made the efforr to make an effort to deliver on the colour they chose.

    • Not white for pasta? Wow.

      They are still wearing gloves wrong. Using one glove is pointless, unless you only have one hand.

  4. I guess they can only use “tell us a story that reminds you of a memory” so many times. The fact they can’t do service challenges any more has made them come up with last-minute ideas. I do, however, like that we get to see them cook more complex dishes as a result

  5. Mel tears up over Poh’s curry reminding her of her mum, and it’s rather lovely.
    Winners are Poh, Rey and Laura so tomorrow they battle for immunity.
    Geez Reece’s lemon tart looked good – pity he did not just do a plain vanilla ice cream

  6. All the challenges are almost like cook what you like. Sometimes it is difficult to compare. I thought Callum dish should have been chosen. He tried a new dish whereas Reynold has made his 1001 time.

  7. Love lemon pies, lemon bars and lemon tarts and although that tart looked delicious it’s just another tart by Reece….boring.
    If he is in the finals would he make an entree tart, main tart and dessert tart? Don’t think he will make it to the finals, though.

    • I agree. I feel while I would happily eat one of Reece’s innumerable tarts, he has peaked now. The only thing I hesitate over is his sugar balance – I felt the judges were saying in the creme caramel that it was too sweet. Someone like Poh or Emelia seems to understand more that too much sugar can be too much sugar and they hold back.

      I agree with t
      I’m sensing he is getting the ‘Not long for this world” arc, but then, so is Callum. Emelia is getting lots of positive edits so she is either going home next or going to the end. Laura seems assured a place and I don’t think this is necessarily wrong – lots of her food looks delicious and she has toned down the pasta whereas Reece has gone hard on tarts.

      Has anyone noticed that Laura is big on the Australian adjective? Loads of “bloody” talk!

      I agree with you Symthe – Callum was not rewarded for trying stuff, but I do think Laura’s dish looked good too. Mind you, I really like Callum and so am probably prejudiced.
