Let’s take a trip to the Masterchef kitchen now as the finalists face their toughest challenge yet…
“Chefs! It’s time to open your mystery boxes and find out what you’ll be cooking with!”
Gregg’s eyes are wild with practised zeal.
“That’s right Gregg! Two beautiful dishes, one hour!”
The pair sidle over to Kevin’s work station. The dentist from Truro has been wowing the judges with his Eastern take on French classics.
“What have ya got there Kev?”
“Err it’s, oh God it’s…my wife’s head…”
Kevin’s box contains puy lentils, heritage carrots and his wife’s severed head.
“You look a little daunted there Kev, what are ya gonna do?”
“Oh Jesus God…I have no idea, Olivia! Baby, oh Christ….”
Kevin’s hands shake as he takes up his oven cloth.
“I could braise the cheeks and maybe pickle the carrots with some star anise and ginger?”
