RECAP | Perfect Chicken Souvlaki wraps up a win for Team Greece in PLATE OF ORIGIN

On Monday’s episode of Plate of Origin, four teams entered the fast and furious round cooking an authentic dish in 45 minutes showcasing chicken.

Two teams were eliminated while the two winning teams progressed to the finals.

Team Vietnam’s Lemongrass Chicken wraps proved too strong for Team Lebanon’s Chicken Shawarma as mother and daughter Jamal and Rachida were eliminated from the competition. While their generosity of spirit and serving size will not be forgotten by the judges, attention to detail was missing and the chicken was dry.

Matt told Team Lebanon:

“You cooked some amazing food and I think you’re going to leave with your heads held high.”

In the next fast and furious, Team Greece’s Chicken Souvlaki scored a perfect 30/30 from the judges, and while Team India’s Chicken Biryani earned praise and surprise for cooking in just 45 minutes, it was no match for a perfect souvlaki, seeing husband and wife Ash and Simran eliminated from the competition.

Simran declared:

“I hope I have made every Indian out there proud of us. It still is the best cuisine ever and we’re always going to be the proud Indians. Long live India!”

The Scores

In the next episode:

It’s a sudden death knock out. Who will make it to the grand final?

It’s a 45-minute beef challenge – first up Team China v Team Cameroon, then in round two Team France v Team Italy as they all battle it out for the best food on the planet.

Plate Of Origin continues Tuesday Sept 15 at 7.30pm on Seven
