Masterchef All Stars – A Quick Summary
Still doing the longer recaps for All Stars, as I can neither confirm nor deny that I have been caught up with the Olympics, however here is a quick summary and will put the full one up in this post in about an hour:
Masterchef All Stars appears to be paying homage to the Olympics with a relay style cook-off. There were four rounds with the first challenge cuisine selected by Kate Bracks as the yellow team won the challenge in the last episode. She picked Lebanese because she thought this would give her an advantage. She had not realised that red team’s Jonathan Daddia’s father was Moroccan. Not that this helped him as he dished up inedible kebbe. Julie Goodwin won with her Kofta. She immediately sent Poh down to do Chinese and finally we had a Marion and Poh cook off, but in a surprise result Dani Venn took it out with her Lychee Toffee Pops.Kate then sent Kumar down to cook Indian, as Aaron Harvie said “he would take one for the team”, but it was Chris Badenoch who was the surprise winner with a well cooked salmon. The last leg was French with Justine, Callum and Hayden battling it out, but Callum won it for the red team with a nice looking quail. It all very nice at the moment but like the Olympics the question has to be asked when are the eliminations going to start?
