MKR’s Zana almost voms after finding three hairs at Mitch and Laura’s ultimate instant restaurant

Zana moves through the emotional stages of finding a hair in her food.
MY KITCHEN Rules’ Mitch and Laura were left with sad faces after their ultimate instant restaurant on Sunday night. And Zana was left with a disgusted one.
The series villain was grossed out when husband Gianni found a hair in his entree. And then she was sickened when she found another hair in her own main. By the
time she found one final dirty hair in her dessert, she was just about ready to vom.
“OK, now it’s just a joke,” she said after finding the last strand in her dessert. “I’m sorry but I can’t do this. F*ck. There’s another hair. In my food. I can’t do this anymore. I’ve had enough. I don’t know how I can critique food when there’s hair in it in three courses. Do I score that a one because I can’t eat it? How can I critique that?”
She then went through the four emotional stages of finding a dirty hair in your food: Shock, disgust, sorrow and acceptance.

Tasked with preparing two entrees, two mains and two desserts, Mitch and Laura started the evening strong with their entrees, but little mistakes made their way into the kitchen for the following courses.
“I thought it was an absolutely delightful way to start a three course meal,” Pete said about their entree of goats cheese fondant with roast beetroot and port figs. “The goats cheese fondant had a lovely texture. I know it wasn’t exactly what you were after — I would’ve loved to have seen fondant oozing out once you open it up — but it definitely wasn’t a disappointment.”
Manu thought their caramelised onion broth and truffle French toast was an “explosion of flavour”. Both judges scored the entrees a nine.
Taking a risk with their main of lamb sweetbreads with charred cauliflower and hazelnuts, it didn’t quite hit the mark.
“Not unenjoyable but just a little bit dense,” Pete said of the sweetbreads which lacked creaminess. “I think this was a good dish — just didn’t nail all the techniques properly.” He scored the dish a seven.
Similar technical stumbles let down their second main of beetroot risotto with pan roasted pheasant, which Manu scored a six.
“Risotto (was) delicious — full of flavour, the colours jumping out of the plate. But unfortunately there are some faults — a little undercooked, a little crunch,” Manu said of the risotto. “And then you’ve got the pheasant and what I was looking forward to (with) the pheasant was a crispy skin — where’s the skin? Because of the lack of the skin you get a bit of dryness.”

Things continued to go downhill in the kitchen as they prepared dessert. Botching their tart base, the brother-sister team were forced to crumble it up and do a deconstructed version of their porcini and caramel tart with coffee ice cream.
While Manu praised the ice cream, the dessert as a whole was too strong and sweet — “to the point where it starts to burn the back of your throat”. “You haven’t really delivered on this one, unfortunately,” he told them.
While it was slightly better news for their second dessert of poached meringue in orange scented custard with pistachio praline, it still “missed the mark”.

“It was delicate — it was light, not too sweet,” Pete said. “But unfortunately your orange scented custard, as far as texture goes, it was just a little bit flat. This one just missed the mark.” Both desserts were scored a five.
With the combined score of 19 out of 40 from the other teams, Mitch and Laura finished the night with the grand total score of 60 and fell to the bottom of the leaderboard.
My Kitchen Rules continues Monday night at 7.30pm on Seven.
