'Crazy Delicious': Harry's 'pregnant' ravioli and honey cake martini triumphs after his crumble cake mishap
'I thought after Harry's cake, I thought that was it, he was doomed. And then he pulled out this great ravioli,' judge Heston said
Judge Carla Hall is worried Harry's giant ravioli may not cook all the way through but he is unphased. Harry is coming from a defeat — his apple crumble cake didn't work for the judges — and he knew he wouldn't survive the second round if he didn't put up a front. He's feeling the pressure to finish first and for that to happen, faux confidence is what he needs. Also, what could possibly go wrong with a rainbow ravioli that wraps a bunch of mini raviolis with a bolognese sauce at the center?
Episode 5 of 'Crazy Delicious' triggered some very interesting food conversations around flavors and textures. The first round was all about reimagining apples and how it's traditionally had. While Elainea went for toffee apples, Gabi recreated the poison apple with a less evil twist.
Gabi and Elainea knew what they were up to and appeared somewhat confident, it was Harry who surprised everyone with his take on food reinvention. Even though, he went with a minimal twist, Heston Blumenthal and Swedish chef and restaurateur Niklas Ekstedt thought his ravioli and shakshuka with honey cake martini stole the limelight. Host-comedian Jayda Adams and Carla even made jokes that Harry's ravioli was more like pregnant ravioli with babies wrapped inside.
"I thought after Harry's cake, I thought that was it, he was doomed. And then he pulled out this great ravioli," Heston said, to which Niklas and Carla readily agreed. It was the second round when things really started to turn around for Harry. However, his apple course wasn't terrible just that the cake was heavy and was rich with flour.
Harry won the golden apple, he was shocked but delighted. Elainea lost the last round possibly because there were too many flavors she tried to blend in an attempt to make her dish crazy. The judges loved her "ballsiness" but the food also needs to be delicious for it to work. Heston said that her dumplings were more of hard bread balls than dumplings, and that was probably where she lost the plot.
