What a great episode! A fantastic challenge which really showed who was lacking what skills (seriously, a batter - not that difficult and something I would assume a chef comp contestant would've brushed up on! A basic cake mix - surely not hard to have rough ratios stored in your head?), and also showcasing the skills of some, so far, underrated or undershown cooks.
I was also in stitches throughout:
Gary to Ellie: 'Hmmm, that's strangely unpleasant' *screwed up nose* *grossed out giggle*
George: 'I don't want to hug you Gary:
But George: 'Sometimes you need to taste your own food . . .'
WTF?!?! Sometimes? Surely as a cook/chef you taste your food at varying intervals during the cooking process to make sure you have the flavours right? Even for a tried and tested, oft cooked dish you'd still taste at some point?!
When she did taste it, she was able to identify exactly what was wrong with it, in every way. Why wouldn't you do this as you're cooking to avoid such embarrassment?!?! She seems talented in that respect, and could potentially be a good chef because of it.
