While the Worst Cooks in America might be learning about flavor, these unusual flavor combinations could spark a new culinary adventure.
The recruits have come a long way on Worst Cooks in America, but it is time to put their culinary creativity to the test. With these unusual pairings, the recruits can put their knowledge to the test. Will the pairing be perfection or utter disaster?
According to Food Network, this week’s episode of Worst Cooks in America, “Opposites Attract” features the following:
The recruits learn how to combine unlikely ingredients and kick things off with a game where they must punch their way to success. Then Alton Brown and Anne Burrell challenge the recruits to make a flatbread including an unusual pairing, and for the main dish challenge, they must make a dish pairing fruit and meat. It’s a sweet victory for the recruits with the best dishes, but for those with the worst dishes, it’s sour grapes and a ticket home.
Looking at the synopsis, a flatbread can be a great place to experiment with ingredients. Since it is a dish that has broad appeal, it is a great way to try something new. Whether it is a single ingredient or a flavor combination, the familiar makes the different more approachable.
It might be difficult for the recruits to make their own dough. The key will be for the worst cooks to listen to the task and take their time.
For the main challenge, the combination of meat and fruit can be tricky yet delicious. The key to this challenge will be to find the right fruit and meat combination. Given that Anne Burrell and Alton Brown demo a dish, the recruits need to take good notes. No one should go too far out of the box on this challenge.
Overall, the recruits are proving that they are learning. While there are still plenty of mistakes, it is much improved over the first challenge. Maybe by the end of the season, these recruits will be real cooks.
