Court and Duncan farewell My Kitchen Rules

The quarter finals of My Kitchen Rules have arrived.

TIm & Kyle are back in the game, joining the remaining seven teams who have returned to Kitchen HQ after travelling around the country one last time for the Ultimate Instant Restaurants. The 2017 Quarter Finals kick off with another MKR first – a Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner challenge taking place over three rounds. The teams who create the most impressive dishes in each round are safe, until we are left with just two teams competing in the third and final round as they try to prove to the judges that they deserve to stay in the competition and avoid elimination.

ROUND 1: BREAKFAST CHALLENGE

Teams are tasked with creating the ultimate breakfast dish in just 30 minutes. All eight teams cook at once, however they are paired off against each other based on their ranking from the Ultimate Instant Restaurants. The team from each pairing that creates the judges’ favourite dish is safe, while the other team is sent to Round 2.
