MasterChef Australia – Julie V Adrian Richardson
Look I have got to be honest I found this episode excitement was limited to waiting to find out what Julie did to her hand. Whilst she was cooking there was no bandage, but then cut to her direct to camera chats and there she is waving a heavily bandaged appendage around.
At one stage I thought she must have sliced it, as when she was deboning the lamb and her knife work looked a tad dangerous which did result in a nick.
Tonight Julie was up against Adrian Richardson, the Melbourne Chef/Owner of La Luna. A chef who apparently knows his meat.
The challenge was a rolled loin of lamb with a potato gallette with a spinach ball. Julie was only given a 10 minute head start.
Since it the episode was so dull I lost concentration and thought there is only a week and a half left, when are they going to have a full ‘restaurant’. They built it in as part of the set when are they going to use?
Adrian gave a masterclass in butcher, and reckons he has a special relationship with dead carcasses. He can see lines on them where he should cut them, and they also talk to him. Julie was relaxed and did quite well, however she did grab a hot frypan handle which resulted in her bandaged hand.
In the judging George complained about the lack of sauce on the dish of Adrian’s. This is not the first time he has made this complaint. Julie scored 24 out of 30 and Adrian beat her with a 27.
The challenge was irrelevant this week, as you knew they were not going to let her win, as it would muck up what they have planned over the next 10 days.
