Masterchef Australia – Getting Closer To The Top 20
I was not surprised when Bushtucker man was eliminated from Masterchef Australia tonight, as the paperbark and grass he picked in Glebe has probably been urinated on by every dog in the inner-city suburb.
Tonight the elimination challenge was to make a two course seafood meal , and to be honest I would have been happy to eat most of them.
Special guest judge was superb seafood chef/owner of Pier Restaurant Greg Doyle. It is clear these episodes were filmed prior to the swine flu ‘pandemic’ as the judges continue to share plates.
Julie the IT Consultant from Sydney wisely kept it simple or as Greg Doyle said bistro food. I thought her dishes looked lovely and fresh particularly the scallops with mango salsa. She was named as having the best dishes of the night. So other contestants should take note this appears to be the type of food the judges are after.
I was surprised Poh Ling was safe when she drowned some gorgeous flathead with a mango dressing.
The judges continue to give the love to the molecular gastronomy boy. His food combinations are extremely unappetising.
Five cooks were meant to be eliminated tonight, however the judges seemed to be unable to decide who to go and only three got the chop. If they are soft c**king it now what are they going to be like when the judging is going to be toughher. The next episode on Sunday will reveal the top 20.
Producers please expand host Sarah Wilson’s role now.
Best dish: Scallops with mango salsa
Worst dish: The fig with oyster
