THERE hasn’t been a unicorn custard with elves’ tears this season, but some of the challenges have come pretty close. Here are the three most diabolical:
Lemon, lime and bitters
It looked like a lemon, but George Calombaris’ ( pictured, below) foray into Heston Blumenthal territory was actually a sphere of chocolate, lime jelly and curd, disguised as a lemon.
The choc- top
Who makes a choc- top from scratch? Nick Palumbo from Gelato Messina, for one. Recreating his salted caramel- themed delight required almost, but not quite, burning the caramel, and taking a 15- second window to roll the sugar cones without them shattering.
Without the recipe Each of the three contestants had a bit of the recipe, but none of them had it all.
