Masterchef Australia – Jay Has Gone
Jay handed back his Mensa membership, when he said “Ice cream needs to be chilled and needs to be cold.”
Talk about stating the obvious. He had a tough night, he is a good cook, but he is not a strong dessert person.
Tonight they were cooking Pandan Chiffon Cake with Black Sesame Ice Cream, Coconut Praline, and tapioca. It was a recipe of Dan Hong’s from Ms G’s in Potts Point, Sydney.
They had 90 minutes to cook it in.
It was the Dani and Jay show tonight in the pressure test, we hardly saw Ellie at all, except for the start of the episode where she looked like she was going to be sick. Her lack of screen time indicated to me she was safe.
Dani’s whose dream is to open own asian grocer and snack bar, earned my respect tonight when she turned to the peanut gallery and in a passive-aggressive way said “Sorry I am just getting confused” as in shut up Danielle. Danielle had her invention test win go to her head, as she kept on yelling out instructions.
Jay was stuffing up, not reading the recipe properly and kept on making mistakes. In fact he looked like he did not know how to fold egg whites properly.
I did laugh when George came up to him and asked “Are you under control?”. “Not even close” was his response.
George tonight again proved tonight that he gets the naffest lines. It must be in his contract. “You can’t have your cake and eat it too” was the lowlight of the episode.
Ellie’s dish got good reviews Dan Hong liked the icecream as he could taste the black sesame and palm sugar. He thought her sponge was dense.
Dani said she has taken her lipstick to show she is serious about being in the competition dish got great reviews.
Dan thought it was the best ice-cream of the lot. Matt said she has nailed the flavours of the dish.
Dan was just impressed that all of Jay’s elements were on the plate.
And that said it all and Jay was eliminated. Gary said it was a tough decision on their part. He was devastated. I had not realised he was only 31 and married. Both him and his wife look about 20.
It was a bit of a surprise considering he has been one of the stronger cooks of the competition. But tonight he did plate up the worse dish. It is a bit of a pity as at least he had a personality.
