Well the bottom two couples were not a surprise tonight. Either one could have gone home... in fact, I am not sure how he really chose between them. But let me try to guess. I think that home British cooking is not all that exciting, and in order to succeed, had to be spectacular. And this poor guy was not capable of spectacular. He hardly understood how to use salt! But for me, the Mexican meal was so pathetic, they were lucky to get a challenge.
And his partner, Caroline's, voice was painful to listen to. So, for that reason alone, I am glad that they are the ones who are out.
I think Raymond is intrigued by the idea of good Asian food. Raymond would love to add Asian food to hi empire, but Peter keeps not doing his Asian food well. Noodles that absorb too much liquid, and rice that is overcooked and sticky.
Nice to see that Provenance stood their ground about sourcing, spent way too much time sourcing, and still came out on top. It was a risk, and it paid off for them very well. Congrats to them!
