My Kitchen Rules 2023 Recap Episode 6: Claudean gets her just desserts and a team goes home

"We just couldn't wait to find the flaws."

It’s episode 6 of My Kitchen Rules 2023 and finally, it’s time to head to Brisbane to join Claudean and Anthony for their Instant Restaurant.

They’re welcoming everyone to Papa & Mama Mu’s, an Italian-inspired restaurant, complete with a homemade sign by their daughter.

With karma abound, the guests are ready to critique the food, given that Claudean is the “Pasta Queen”.

“We just couldn’t wait to find the flaws,” Pearls says. LOL.


Ricotta, spinach mushroom ravioli with white wine sauce


  • Claudean was excited to show off her homemade ricotta and ravioli pasta. The dish receives a warm reception, however; the judges say it would have been better if she had served the ravioli with a burnt butter sauce rather than the heavy and rich white wine sauce.


Osso Buco with anchovy gremolata and polenta

  • Given she was eager to get the Osso Buco prep done early, it was served overdone and her polenta failed.


Ant’s choc hazelnut fior di latte gelato with crostini


  • The dessert did not set and was underwhelming

The Leaderboard

  • Tommy and Rach – 78 – Straight to Quarter Finals 
  • Sonia and Marcus – 71
  • Nick and Christian – 66
  • Claudean and Anthony – 53
  • Coco and Pearls – 50 – Eliminated 


Much to our horror, Coco and Pearls finish at the bottom and are eliminated from the competition.

Ladies and gentlemen, the drama has left the building!

The Drama

In an unprecedented move, Coco and Pearls visit Claudean and Anthony in the kitchen in a bid to throw them off. Plus, adding fuel to the fire, when Claudean revealed she was making pasta, she said: “They won’t be roses.” Ouch!

Naturally, they retaliated by giving them terrible scores all round.

The Gatecrashers

After Coco and Pearls’ elimination, Colin makes some announcements about the next steps.

Since Radha and Prabha finished at the top of the leaderboard, they were fast-tracked to the Semi-Final.

Tommy and Rach were also fast-tracked to the quarter-finals while the remaining teams will travel around the country again to cook against each other and…. dun dun dun dun! Three new teams, The Gatecrashers!

The Gatecrashers. Seven
