Masterchef Australia – No Surprise Who Went
Noelene was always going to be in trouble once they found out the challenge was going to be make a dish with some Heston theatrical flair. She is no alchemist.
She decided that putting fish heads on a plate would be enough theatrics. That was more shock/awe then the wow factor they required. To put a Heston twist to it she made some jellied curry balls to go with it. Also the fish heads were dry.
It was a tough challenge and surprisingly Kelty and Rishi produced some amazing dishes. Rishi made Dumplings with a Salted Caramel Sauce. He also made some green tea aroma. Matt Preston said “Really clever and really subtle cooking”. The dish looked savoury but tasted sweet. Kelty made a delicious looking and clever Hot Toddy Tart served with guiness and honey ice cream.
Samira got lucky she made traditional custard lady fingers, something she has made many times before but put her dish on dry ice and poured rose and orange water over and it and voila it was judged to have the Heston factor. At first she was going to make a volcano but stumbled at the chocolate dirt that was going to be ash.
After the judging Noelene was sent packing. There were no tears, and she must have known she was going. Also in a sense it was fair as Noelene did undercook the turkey that put all of them in the elimination challenge.
You have to wonder how much they paid Heston for his week on the show, as tonight he looks like he does the whole masterclass show.
Next week off to Dubai which fits in with the show’s sponosor QANTAS new route to Europe.
