Nick explained that after quitting the AFL four years ago, he felt like there had been a ‘missing chapter’ in his life.

The show’s three finalists – Collette Dinnigan, Nick and Tilly Ramsay – were tasked with recreating chef Martin Benn’s incredible ‘Metropolis’ dessert.

Benn rated the difficulty of the dish as being ’20’ out of 10, and revealed ‘it took about a year of planning’ to create. 

‘So, the shell on the top is a cocoa butter white chocolate shell with charcoal powder,’ he explained.

‘Then we have a coconut Chantilly, which is obviously the white cream, and then the block underneath, that is four layers. 

‘So the top layer is an anise praline crunch. Then we have a chocolate crémeux followed by a fermented cherry gel and then a caramel chocolate mousse.’ 

Benn later rated Nick’s ‘Metropolis’ an impressive 10 out of 10, and told him: ‘I enjoyed your dish as much as my own.’
