Welsh Pigfoot wiped the floor with the other three on Monica's round, proving he could make the perfect sugar spiral, even if his bruschetta was too heavy on the garlic. Next up was I Want to be in Green Day, who couldn't even begin the sugar spiral and did a pretty piss poor bruschetta. Ordinarily, such a character wouldn't even get through but the other two weren't much better. Simon served a bruschetta that looked like Findus French bread pizza but apparently that just how they're meant to look; he failed to even begin a sugar spiral either. Finally dull Dom failed the spiral skill test and delivered a bruschetta devoid of garlic or seasoning.
Welsh Pigfoot and Simon go through and after much discussion Monica lets Green Day have his time in the sun, though not without the chance to have a dig at his hair:
Greg: "Nice hair cut, though."
Monica: "I wasn't looking."
Next round was mussels and Scottish razor clams. Simon delivers up a mussel risotto and sticks three open clams into its yellow top, giving the impression of three sand worms bursting through the surface of Arrakis. Michel is not impressed but loses geek points to the audience at home by describing it as looking like a space ship. WTF? Anyway, once they taste it all is forgiven because the flavours are good. The second dish is tagliatelli and this gains similar praise - apparently Simon has an amazing palette.
Green Day's (who has the sense to feel embarrassed he got through to this round) first dish is a mussel pasta dish that is too over-seasoned meaning all Greg and Michel taste is salt and pepper. It's not looking good but his second dish is a razor clam broth which Michel reckons looks amazing. To me it looks like that bowl of veg floating in stock I accidentally order sometimes at Wagamama's to my great regret. Green Day's left in the inedible part of the clam (the stomach, I think he said) but the flavours are good so he feels he's redeemed himself.
Finally Pigfoot fails to deliver on his first round promise. His risotto looks dull and he puts capers in which don't go down well at all. His pasta dish has the clams in and he knows how to cook them, which Michel likes, but for some reason he puts a couple of slices of corriander and garlic BRIOCHE on top. Greg tells him garlic shouldn't be anywhere near sweet stuff.
