The German Team
Chef enjoyed the German dishes a lot. Overall, he felt the presentation was lacking, but the flavours were really spot on. The textures of each component complimented each other well. The marron is such a delicate flavour. Chef thought they pulled it off, considering it is an Australian ingredient, which they were most likely not used to working with. In the days leading up to the competition the German team spent some time in WA’s South west and it was great to see them working with local produce.
