16 pairs of amateur cooks create pop-up restaurants in their own homes, where they will prepare a menu of dishes for judges Michelin starred restaurateur Glynn Purnell, and renowned food writer and Queen of Irish cooking, Rachel Allen and their rival contestants to critique.. With a £10k prize and the chance to win the title of Britain's Best Home Chef it's a high pressure high octane and entertaining ride for C4 daytime.
The second team from the Midlands and Wales region are married couple Celia and Dave, who bring a taste of Africa and the Caribbean to their restaurant for the night, 'Cee Cee's Kitchen'. Their three course meal includes tropical cod two ways, a main course of classic Nigerian stew, and for dessert, equatorial fruits with mango ice cream, ginger and honey biscuit. Will the couple's exotic flare be their ticket to the next round in the MKR Mansion?
Midway through the Midlands and Wales region, the time has come for microbrewery owner Ray and his friend and colleague Simon to prepare their three course menu, which unsurprisingly features beer in every course. For starters they prepare Penclawd cockle and laver bread gratin; a main of steak and Grey Trees Stout pie, and finally a chocolate and malt Porter brownie with fresh cream.
Next from the Midlands and Wales, globe-trotting sisters Lucy and Emily from Malvern create a menu inspired by British classics with an international twist. Their three course meal takes their guests on a world tour, beginning with their starter of East-African inspired Scotch eggs with Blatjang ; a main course of Mexican fish and chips and for dessert, a Brazilian strawberry and chocolate trifle with truffles. But will their international dishes be their ticket into the MKR Mansion Round?
The final team to cook in the Midlands and Wales region are couple Jacqueline and Andrew from Shrewsbury, who run a small confectionery business making traditional nougat. Will the pair be able to sweeten up their rivals and the judges with their three course menu that uses the best local produce? Their menu includes rack of Shropshire lamb and raspberry nougat parfait with fresh berries, berry coulis and Langue de Chat Biscuits.
On the first day of the Mansion Round, Sheffield friends and in-laws Yee Kwan and Natalie are challenged by culinary legend Pierre Koffmann, one of the few chefs to have been awarded three Michelin stars. His mystery ingredient is rabbit and the girls choose to cook a traditional French dish of braised rabbit in cider, with pommes puree and carrots, followed by an Asian pear and plum crumble with ginger ice cream. Will their menu meet the exacting standards of Chef Koffmann and impress their fellow contestants and the ultimate judges, Glynn and Rachel?
One of the most renowned chefs in the world, Ken Hom, visits the MKR Mansion, where Edinburgh couple Angela and James face the challenge of creating an impressive main course from Ken's mystery ingredient: whole salmon. The couple's love of the Far East and passion for Vietnamese cuisine leads them to produce a dish called salmon bun cha, in which the salmon is filleted, skinned and cooked in various ways. They end the meal with an orange tart with Vietnamese egg coffee. But will their efforts stand the test of the challenge?
Will history buff and food blogger Sam and her husband Neil impress guest judge and godfather of Italian gastronomy Antonio Carluccio with their main course, based on his mystery ingredients of courgettes, courgette flowers and aubergine? The couple take a gamble by offering their guests a vegetarian dish of fiori di zucchini ripieni and melanzane parmigiana which they follow with an Amalfi lemon tart, and strawberry and basil sorbet. Will their green cuisine win the week?
Today, it's the turn of microbrewery boss Ray and colleague Simon to create a dazzling main course for 11 guests using the mystery ingredient saddle of Welsh lamb, presented by their guest judge Stephen Terry, professional chef and owner of the Hardwick in Abergavenny. The pair butcher and prepare the saddle to create a Moroccan-inspired dish with spiced potatoes and roasted vegetables, followed by a honey and lemon cheesecake with strawberries. But will their Mediterranean twist on a classic dish prove worthy enough?
As the first week of the Mansion Round draws to a close there is still one last cook-off from Australian couple Geoff and Debra who run a community bakery in Edinburgh. The pair must face up to the mystery ingredient of three different varieties of beetroot presented by guest judge Rachel Khoo. Will their creative approach to tricolour beetroot salad with soused mackerel followed by struffoli with candied beetroot impress all the judges and their fellow contestants? At the end of the evening everything hinges upon Glynn and Rachel's final decision. Which two teams will be leaving the My Kitchen Rules Mansion Round?
