MT DRUITT po­lice of­fi­cers Monique Fitzger­ald and Sarah Moore were the first team to cook in Chan­nel 7’s re­al­ity se­ries My Kitchen Rules on Mon­day night.

They could barely con­tain their ex­cite­ment when they wel­comed judges Pete Evans and Manu Feildel, plus the other teams, into Monique’s Yel­low Rock home.

De­spite only hav­ing three hours to cook their meal the pair were con­fi­dent their po­lice back­ground would give them an edge.

“Our ad­van­tage over the other teams is the abil­ity to work un­der pres­sure,” Monique said.

They named their home restau­rant Crime and Nour­ish­ment, and dec­o­rated it with po­lice para­pher­na­lia in­clud­ing po­lice hats, rib­bons and even a mo­tor­bike.

Some el­e­ments of their menu of rocket, beetroot and goat’s cheese tart, crispy skin salmon and thrice cooked chips, and sticky date pud­ding, scored praise from the judges, but they also said there was room for im­prove­ment.

Their over­all score was 68 out of 100.

“We did the best we could,” Monique said af­ter the duo re­ceived their re­sults. “We didn’t come away with the scores we were hope­ful for at the be­gin­ning of the night, but we have walked away very happy with the scores we did get.”
