Team Greece cousins Dezi and Penny have won Plate of Origin, taking home the $100,000 prize.
They scored 76 of 90 points, defeating Team Vietnam’s Thanh and Duncan on 72 points.
Both were asked to cook up a three course meal with the winning menu comprising BBQ Prawns with Yiayia’s Pita Bread, Lamb with Lemon Potatoes and Greek Salad, and Galaktoboureko with Mastic Ice Cream.
Dezi said: “We have represented the Australian Greek community and now we’ve just won Plate of Origin! It is mind-blowing. I’m so grateful, this is beyond anything I could have ever dreamed of.”
Duncan saying: “I just feel so proud to be able to represent the Vietnamese and the Aussie community.” Thanh added: “Our experience on Plate of Origin has been extraordinary, it reminded us that food is a universal language.”
Seven screened a marathon double episode from 7:30 – 10:40pm following disappointing ratings. The international cuisine series was originally scheduled to follow the Olympic Games, but the pandemic threw a spanner in the works.
With the show unlikely to be renewed it leaves questions over the future of Matt Preston, Gary Mehigan and Manu Feildel.
