Masterchef All Stars – The Zeus Pressure Test
It was game on for the final six All Stars, with the pressure test consisting of Zeus – The God of God’s dessert made by George Calombaris. It consisted of thirteen elements. It was allegedly Zeus, his eight mistresses and his wife. Yeah you do the maths.
This was Chris Badenoch’s living nightmare but he ended up being a well oiled machine.
Kate Bracks just got on with it, Julie made a mess but struggled through as this dessert was not in her comfort zone either. She ended up having trouble with the chocolate tuile but once she realised she needed to heat up the glucose to 150 degrees Celsius, not Fahrenheit things got better for her.
Not so much for Justine who had to do the tuile twice as well but also her chocolate mousse split when she over beat it.
Meanwhile Chris was going along so smoothly he even felt confident enough to add more vinegar to the Salt and Vinegar Sticks.
Dani was in all sorts of bother. She was way behind in tempering the chocolate and it was very lumpy. In the end she served up the dish with three elements missing.
Chris and Callum both got all 13 elements on the plate, whereas Kate missed two element as was Justine.
Everything was great on Chris’s dish except for his chocolate.
Kate’s chocolate was tempered however she was missing the pear and one other element.
By the way the extraordinary waste of gold again tonight was again shocking. They were barely eating the gold covered chocolate “wife” just cracking it.
Julie did not put her “wife” or the chocolate in the box but said she was on the plate “limp” prepping the judges for a non-snap but she had done it well.
Callum also said his chocolate was badly tempered but again his was good.
The top two were Chris and Callum and it was no surprise that Dani was eliminated.
Tomorrow night Curtis Stone guest stars.
