Hi Everyone, this is my first post here.
A group of friends have organised a Master Chef style comp . There are 4 teams of 4 chefs. Each team is given $120 and has to feed themselves and 12 guests two courses each.
There will be one of each course presented to a judges table to be marked on taste and presentation. Our team has decided to do a main and dessert.
One of us has a great recipe for Coffee mud pie for the dessert but we need ideas for the main course. Problem is we have 2 hours to shop and prepare the food then transport it to a local hall where all the guests will be. The cooking has to be done at one of our homes about 5 mins from the hall.
I was thinking a meat dish like maybe rack of lamb that could be resting while transported and plating up. We have good lamb here in New Zealand. We need something with a bit of wow factor as we will be judged on presentation. Anyone got an impressive recipe for something that would look great and be tasty and fairly easy for us average home cook types?
