In tonight’s episode, Tracy’s Power Apron means that she goes straight into Immunity. This is huge enough but it gets even bigger. She can pick the other two contestants to join her. It’s the three South Australians, Tracy, Laura and Soul Patch going at it.
The core ingredient for the first round is beer and they need to make a bar snack incorporating it. Laura does what any other 19 year old in the situation would do, she gets hold of as much alcohol as she can. Her dish is chicken skewers and polenta chips.
Tracy’s beer candied bacon and popcorn chicken sliders sound amazing. SP’s also making sliders and capsicum coated in squid ink. Problem is that he’s braising eye fillet and that’s the wrong cut for braising. He only comes to this realisation with 10 minutes left. He ends up frying battered eye fillet instead.
Tracy’s sliders look a mess but eat like a dream. They all empty their plates. SP’s sliders look really bare and his squid ink capsicum looks like a black, charry disaster. He’s not going to move forward. Laura’s chicken skewers are great but it’s Tracy’s fantastic sliders that win.
