Masterchef All Stars – The Sausage Sizzle
When is there going to be an elimination? Masterchef All Stars is only going for three weeks and we are three episodes in and no one has been cauterised.
Now I know it is nice to see the joviality between the All Stars, but really I want to see who is the best cook not who is the nicest one.
The challenge was for the three teams again split up in their seasons to cook a sausage sizzle for one hundred firemen at their training headquarters.
Props have to be given to Shine Australia and TEN for being able to think of a challenge where they could show Hayden Quinn in his Speedos again. Not sure what it had to do with cooking then or now.
Team red aka season two had the first pick of the main ingredient and they selected duck, team blue (season one) picked pork, and team yellow chose lamb.
Now team blue are not showing their cooking chops at all. In fact the team that went into the show favourites are tanking faster than James Mangussen. Their sausage was too dry and they came last in the challenge. Julie Goodwin did manage to cook a good tomato relish the only highlight of the challenge for them.
The red team were behind in making their duck sausages but Jonathan Daddia who apparently has a chutney line, made a very original and tasty caramelised onion and apple chutney. Lucky for him it worked and he will be hoping for some product sales off the back of his exposure on the show.
In fact the blue team should pull up their socks as they have brands to protect as well.
Season three were making lamb and rosemary sausages serving them with caramelised onions. A very safe choice but a popular one with the firemen.
In fact team yellow were very comfortable in the challenge had most of their sausages cooked before the tsunami of people hit their stall.
The blue team only scored eight votes with both red and yellow both getting 36 votes.
It was all down the judges, and they went with the more complex duck sausages and Johnno’s chutney and gave them the win. This will give them the advantage in the mystery box tonight.
