Wanaka pair Chris and Bex Wright have won the third season of My Kitchen Rules NZ against our very own Heather Andersen and Mitch MacDonald for the reality cooking show’s $100,000 prize.
The two teams – the only survivors from an initial pool of six – had to don their chefs’ whites and cook a four-course menu for 20 people, including four guest judges, the other MKR contestants, and friends and family, in the kitchen of Auckland’s Sky City’s Gusto restaurant.
The Wanaka pair pulled slightly in the fish course with their cod, cockle and butterbean puree combo out-competing Heather and Mitch’s John Dory curry.
Going into the deserts judge Pete Evans said Heather and Mitch would need to not only make a perfect dessert, but for Chris and Bex to slip up, to taste victory.
For a moment, it looked like exactly that might have happened.
Heather and Mitch came close to a comeback victory but missed out 52 to 47.
We are very proud of Heather and Mitch’s efforts in getting to the final and for putting up such a great fight!
