With judge Gary Mehigan watching on, the contestants became increasingly flustered and frustrated.
'Where is the bread?' Tati Carlin quizzed her teammate Simon Toohey.
'The bread is there in the 'open your eyes' section!' came Simon’s withering response.
Meanwhile, fellow teammate Abbey Rose became so overwhelmed at one point that she started crying.
'I'm spending an embarrassing amount of time on this - we're about to feed a whole load of people and I don't want to serve them something that's not good,' she said.
As for the judge’s opinions, guest judge Maggie Beer ended up being impressed with the hummus, but wasn’t a fan of the fig and onion salad.
'You've lost those beautiful individual flavours because there's so much there. It’s such a shame because there's so many nice flavours there.'
