TONIGHT – Ibby & Romel are the first team through to the 2019 Grand Final, despite a self-confessed stressful and disappointing cook which left Romel in tears and Ibby’s hair out of place!

But their sous vide technique and modern Middle Eastern flavours wowed the judges more than Pat & Bianca’s traditional take on some Italian classics. An overcooked osso bucco lacking in sauce sealed the frenemies fate and sent them packing. 

THE CHALLENGE

Teams had to prove they were worthy of a place in the Grand Final by serving a knockout three course meal, with 90mins for entrée, 60mins for main and 30mins for dessert.  Judges Pete and Manu were joined by Colin Fassnidge and guest judges Karen Martini, Guy Grossi and Liz Egan to taste and score each team’s entire menu out of 10. The team with the lowest total score would be eliminated.
