It was a three teams going head to head to be the last two teams to make it into finals week. It was Camilla and Ash, Eva and Debra and Jane Emma duking it out to gain an advantage by winning the first challenge. They had to tag team and segment citrus fruit, first a grapefruit, then a lemon then finally a lime.
Eva and Debra hacked at theirs, whilst Ash was getting pretty uptight with Camilla for being so slow and not being precise. In fact it looked like there was a fair bit of tension between the pair. But Ash standing over her was not helping and telling her not to talk whilst she was doing it. However in the end they did win the advantage.
The advantage they received was to pick the vegetable they had to cook with to make a vegetarian dish. The vegetables were mushrooms, cauliflower and okra. Camilla and Ash were smart when they gave Jane and Emma the okra to cook with as they knew Eva and Debra would know what to do with it. Camilla and Ash cooked with the mushrooms which left the cauliflower for Eva and Debra. The winner would go straight into the finals week.
Camilla and Ash were making Ricotta Gnocchi with Braised Mushrooms, Jane and Emma were making Okra Fritters and Eva and Debra were making Cauliflower Curry.
Jane and Emma fritters were meant to be Asian style but they added in Feta Cheese. Pete said the okra got lost in the fritters. Well at least it was not the Masterchef go to dish when they don’t know what to make which is croquettes.
Eva and Debra were told by Manu that the Cauliflower Curry flavour was “to die for” however he thought the cauliflower rice had too much saffron in it.
The judges told Camilla and Ash their gnocchi was as good as Eva and Debra’s dish but the judges did not like the Parmesan Crisp had too much cayenne pepper in it. However the judges put them through to the final five.
Eva an Debra and Jane and Emma then went head to head in the final challenge where they had to make a signature dish. Eva and Debra made Braised Oxtail.They also made bone marrow with a topping on it. The topping was problematic as the first go they put too much pepper in it. Then on the second go Eva realised the issue wasn’t the pepper but the garlic. However the bone marrow was always going to be a favourite with the judges.
Jane and Emma made a dessert. They made Sweet Potato Pie with Peaches. Colin said it was grand final plating and he thought it looked stunning and Manu thought it was a bold dessert. They were scored seven and eights by the judges for a total of 45.
Eva and Debra were told the flavours were great but the plating was not as good. However they were scored eight and nines so they were through to grand final week.
The final five are:
- Steve and Will;
- Ash and Camilla;
- Jac and Shaz;
- Bianca and Drasko; and
- Eva and Debra.
And because Channel 7 don’t think there can be enough instant restaurant rounds the teams will be doing another in finals week.
