The Restaurant with Marco Pierre White and Rachel Allen is back on Virgin Media One tomorrow night, Thursday, 10th October at 9pm as radio DJ Jenny Greene takes on our Head Chef Challenge.
Jenny’s menu calls on memories of her childhood, her momentous wedding day and her work life on radio.
To start, Jenny served a family favourite cooked by her mother, Seared Scallops, Kelly’s Black Pudding with Red Onion Relish.
The critics were left stumped by the amount of relish on the plate with Rachel commenting, “there’s a lot of onion relish, and it’s quite strong”.
The second starter, Crispy Pork Belly with Asian Slaw was inspired by the starter option from Jenny’s wedding to Kelly Keogh in 2016.
For mains, Jenny served Fillet Steak with Skinny Fries, Béarnaise Sauce & Tobacco Onions and Grilled Monkfish with Stir-Fried Greens & Asian Dressing.
A playful clue on desserts gave rise to the diners guessing who might be in the Kitchen. Valrhon Chocolate Disco Glitter Ball with a Mint Parfit, hidden inside the chocolate sphere.
Rachel Allen correctly pieced the clues together, guessing a radio DJ and Greene was the clue behind the mint parfit.
The second dessert, Espresso Martini Dessert, brought out the playful side of Marco Pierre White who loved the dessert served in a cocktail glass but was stumped on how best to eat or drink the very glamorous looking dessert.
Will Jenny’s food have the critics dancing in the aisles? Tune in to Virgin Media One tomorrow night at 9pm to find out.
The Restaurant is hosted in Marco Pierre White Courtyard Bar & Grill Donnybrook.
