This week’s episode, number eight, is about Food for Thought. The healthier alternatives on our supermarket shelves, gluten free, sugar free etc.
Firstly the two golden ticket winners that didn’t get their recipes on the shelves this week.
Elizabeth’s sugar free slice came about due to her daughter Poppy suffering from Kawasaki Disease. The whole family went sugar free. Nice looking slice, apparently really tasty. Sadly in the end the chocolate raspberry sugar free slice, though sugar free, was way too sweet as there was an overabundance of natural sugars in it. Elizabeth was sent packing after batch up.
Rebecca had a super food for baby, using quinoa, prepared fresh and snapped frozen in cute little shapes. Cute baby cubes, frozen in plastic shaped ice cube trays. There were a few hiccups in the preparation of these cubes in the batch up kitchen. We had a little drama of the baby food potentially not reaching health safety standards. In the end drama is resolved via a few phone calls and Rebecca makes it through to the final round.
Unfortunately, like the Highlander, in the end there can be only one. In this case it is Rosie who is the episode victor with her gluten free almond biscuits. I am sort of glad the baby food didn’t win. It meant I didn’t have to steal/borrow/hire a baby to taste test for me, the alternative was to eat it myself. Adult taste buds, therefore wouldn’t have been an accurate road test, I am pretty sure I would of hated it. Read more →
