Masterchef Australia – Hayden Wins Another Immunity Pin
OK so the Matt Preston Facebook message where he said Hayden got two immunity pins was a furphy. See post on that here. He said on twitter tonight: @dashleighdee It wasn’t a spoiler but an error corrected 1hr after it was posted on FB.! Some media & twits assumed it was a spoiler.
I am presuming I am the twit.
Hayden was up against Vincent Gaden of Pastisse, which will be packed tomorrow as those cakes looked fantastic. Is he the Zumbo of 2011?
However the twist as we know is they were having to cook a pork roast not pastry. This must have been in homage to celebrity guest judge Jeremy Strode, who was very serious the entire episode.
Vincent had not cooked roast pork before, it is all macaroons and croissants in his household.
Hayden did prep his piece of meat better than Vincent who took the crackling off and chucked it all in the oven.
Vincent Gaden presentation was deemed to be not restaurant quality by the judges. And they realised he must have quickly pan fried his pork as it was undercooked. Matt Preston liked the pork, but was concerned about the cut of the vegetables.
Hayden’s presentation was fantastic. He servied it up on the platter.
However part of Hayden’s pork was too rare and George got that piece which was inedible.
Matt scored Vincent’s dish a 7, Jeremy scored it a 7, and George scored it a 7 for a total of 21.
Jeremy scored Hayden’s a 7, Matt scored it an 8, and George a 4 for a total of 19.
So Hayden still only has one immunity pin. If his pork had been cooked he would have got two.
