MasterChef Australia – Final Four Romance Invention Test
Did the judges tonight take pity on Andre and let him win the invention test so he would get a go at participating in Beat the Chef challenge? He is the only one of the four left who has not faced off a professional chef. I thought Chris’s three course romantic themed meal was by far the best of the meals produced.
Andre’s main of bugs on polenta did look delicious, but his oysters looked dried out, and the crepe was something that you would have gotten out of the Women’s Weekly Dinner Party Cookbook in the ’70s.
Whereas Chris’s oysters three ways, gave the meal a frisky start both in name and flavour, served with champagne, not some drooping hothoused rose hanging from his lips. Also his main of bugs in a bag looked fresh and elegant, and the dessert just looked devine.
I thought Chris’s comment of “It is good to see Andre getting some credit for the great dishes he has cooked.” really meant “my meal was the best tonight, but they wanted to give to Andre as he had never won one.”.
Also why did Andre take oysters out of shell cook them and then put them back in the shell? I would have thought it was easier to cook them in the shell, and he would have avoided setting the paper on fire.
Sam’s entree of overcooked crostini and oysters looked foul, but I disagree with Gary Mehigan about a salad not being a main meal. Sam knows that women like to keep it light on the main so they can have a calorie packed dessert.
Matt Preston was right to not even bother trying Sam’s puff pastry (which he did not make) ,cream and strawberry stack. Sorry I am not going to call it a mille fueille. In fact he should have been eliminated on the spot for such a uncreative dish.
However it would appear that even though Sam was in the bottom two, he gets to stay around for another week, as the judges said there would be no elimination this week. I presume that means there is not a peer elimination either on Thursday. Did anyone else think this?
I am unable to make any intelligent comment on the mystery box challenge as my Fox IQ had a recording malfunction and I only got the last 30 minutes. Hopefully Injera(who I frantically emailed after I realised the f**kup) will give her thoughts about what happened in the comments section.
As we all guessed there is a judges wildcard re-entry, they don’t say how many will be let back in. I saw Poh’s picture, are Channel Ten the master’s of non-suspense suggesting she is one to get let back in? I would have thought Justine would get a wildcard ahead of Poh considering she is actually considering a career in the food industry.
