Justine Says The Spatchcock Dish Was Not As Difficult As The Zumbo Chocolate Cake.
On a live blog on Daily Telegraph MasterChef Australia’s popular contestant Justine Schofield when asked thought the Zumbo chocolate cake (remember that extraordinary creation) was more difficult then the Brent Savage spatchcock recipe. There was a big deal made of the fact that the spatchcock was the most difficult dish on the show ever.
This is what she said when asked which she thought was more difficult:
Personally I think Adriano’s chocolate cake that we did was so much harder! Last nights dish was challenging, but that cake was a killer!
I also asked her about the clip where Brett was showing the celebrities how to debone the spatchcock here is the Q & A:
Last night prior to the contestants commencing the spatchcock challenge there was footage of Brent Savage showing them how to bone and skin the spatchcock. In the pressure tests or other challenges when you were on the show did the chef’s sometimes show you some technical techniques prior to commencing the dish?
By the way glad to hear you and Lucas’s degustation menu at Nino’s went well. Are there plans to take it to other cities?
hi Reality raver,
Whenever there was a pressure test we were never shown how to do elements of the dish. We were however given tips by the Chef and we were allowed to ask a couple of questions before we commenced.
Nino’s Chef’s Table on Tuesday was a big success. At the moment we are just doing the dinner once a month in Sydney…. but you never know maybe we will take it nationally!!
Our next Chef’s table will be at Nino’s on Melbourne Cup day which we are really excited about!
One of Australia’s leading foodbloggers Grab Your Fork has a great interview she had with Poh Ling Yeow about what influences her with food, and what she has been up to.
She has signed with the ABC to do a cooking series, as well as a two book deal, as well as trying to get ready for a art exhibition. I am just exhausted reading it. An Adelaide reader emailed me and I am not sure if this is true, but they said that Poh had been asked to apply to be on MasterChef Australia. Which may explain why she was given a second chance the audition.
Also the contestants may be able to find international fame, as MasterChef UK will be screening in the UK from January.
