“On the outside I look very calm. But I’m so scared inside. Like the thought of going home like a dish like this, ”she said.
She continued, “It’s so simple in nature, I think it would beat me and I won’t have my goal, you know, to do one better and make it to the final and win.”
Unrest: ‘I look very calm on the outside. But I’m so scared inside. Like the thought of going home like a dish like this, ”Laura said

She added, “I just have to do it right. People say winning is not everything, but … I don’t know, I just have to prove so much. ‘
Despite her nerves, Laura managed to make the ‘children’s dish’, with her peas, mint and lamb.
Honestly, Laura added, “I just have to do it right. People say that winning is not everything, but … I don’t know, I just have to prove so much ‘

“I mean, the lamb was perfectly pink, well-rested. And then, you know, the peas had a lovely touch of freshness and bite. ‘
Jock thought it would have been better with the lamb on the bone.
“The lamb – I’d rather have had it on the bone. You know? I like rack of lamb and I like to chew on the bone. It would be the only negative comment for me, “he said.
“Other than that, it was absolutely perfect.”
Even guest judge Matt Stone was impressed with the dish.
“Along with the spices, like the crunchy, sour, salty spices, you give this kind of vibrancy and cut that deep lamb richness, er, very well,” he said.
He continued, “It was beautiful. I would definitely eat it again and I think there were some great techniques. Laura later entered the final.
