Wow! What an amazing looking meal! I was totally gobsmacked when they brought out the dessert and Manu did too, lol!

I'm so happy for them for scoring so highly. I don't think any of the other teams will beat them.

They did well but I can make a jus 15 times better than that.

The thing that got me was that they didn't fight or argue, they seemed so calm. I know it's edited within an inch of it's life but I was really impressed. Maybe it had something to do with cooking something they'd made many times before, unlike other teams!

I noticed that too, when they said they were going to make something they described the process and just did it! Pretty amazing. If I was their mum's I would be so proud.

The dark haired guy is very good looking- he looks like the type who wants everything perfect in his life (did you see his teeth?).

I really enjoyed watching last night's episode.  They were well prepared, knew what they were doing and produced an amazing meal.  The standard was so high, it will be hard to beat.  The dessert looked beautiful, the did a fabulous job.

I'm looking forward to seeing the boys from Queensland later in the week, they've had an awful lot to say about other people's cooking, so it will be interesting to see whether they live up to their own hype.

It was so easy to watch last night because they were so prepared, and calm and obviously knew what they were doing.
My favourite narky comment for the night was the older and younger female team (don't know their names?) and how they muttered under their breath "there's not much actual cooking on the plate though?" referring to the entree.
Are you for real? Coz you know, it's a real technical effort to boil some frozen peas and squash them through a sieve like you two did!

I just love that these boys have not been cocky and have just kept themselves quiet, which I don't think is a 'game plan' like the others are saying, I think it's just who they are. Their families must be very proud.

Oh, and I'm LOVING the WA couple! They seem like such great people to have at a dinner party! original.gif

Past experiences of cocky-ness has usually ended up leaving them with egg on their faces! Tounge1.gif

Wow the SA boys dinner was impressive!  

They were so calm and had everything prepared and ready go, I don't remember any other team being that put together.  It was good to see a team do so well.

I am so going to make that dessert! Yum biggrin.gif

My husband hates shows like this but he is dying inside when he's in the room and those two Qlders are on. Personally I would love to see them fail but I really don't think they will.

I could not believe them forgetting. Surely they are allowed to look at recipes to make sure they have got things right?
And to forget the butter in a Tarte Tatin!!! I have only made it once of twice before but what I remember most is that delicious buttery sauce. It's what makes it.

Does anyone know what part of Tas they were in last night, it looked beautiful.  I know they kept saying it was very rural and remote, plus they didn't appear to have a Coles anywhere  tongue.gif

Totally hanging out for tonight, i can't wait to see what Mr and Mr Snooty Pants come up with.

I felt sorry for the couple last night. They did seem lovely. I guess with all the pressure she just forgot.

Looking forward to the he-b**ches tonight!
