On Monday’s episode of Plate of Origin, Team Greece went up against Team India in a ‘Fast and Furious round,’ where they only had 45 minutes to showcase their skills cooking chicken.
And boy, did Team Greece not disappoint. Their simple chicken souvlaki, with lettuce, tzatziki and hand-made wraps, scored a perfect 30/30 from the judges.
“That was the best souvlaki I have ever had,” judge, Gary Mehigan, said.
“I can’t add anything to that other than a ten,” fellow judge, Manu Feildel, added.
Team India and Team Greece shared banter throughout the night with Team India bragging about the 18 spices they used in their food, while Team Greece quipped in return “we only use two.”
But ultimately, although Team India’s Chicken Biryani did earn praise and surprise for cooking in just 45 minutes, it was no match for the perfect souvlaki.
Team India were eliminated, with Greece progressing straight through to the semi finals!
