Yesterday the contestants had to show off their culinary skills in the omelette challenge!
After a day of testing the contestants’ physical strength it was time for something a little different this morning. Aching legs and tired muscles aside, they were tasked with the Omelette Challenge; a 5 minute cook off where each contestant had to create a dish reflecting their nation, with egg as the base. An individual challenge at its heart, it was also a team challenge, with a contestant from each group competing against each other in groups of 4, with the winner of each round picking up a point for his team.
In the sun drenched courtyard of the Royal Clifton Hotel, the contestants were given time to prep their ingredients, but were only allowed 5 minutes of flame time to cook their dish. From Kimchi to smoked salmon, they had a huge variety of ingredients and some truly epic dishes from the more skilful chefs in the group.
The final taste test was up to the Head Chef of the restaurant, who even went back to retest some of the dishes after trying them all. Full results will be revealed at a later date!
