Masterchef Australia – No Surprise That Deepali Was Eliminated
Jamie said he loved cooking but life got in the way. I think what he meant was a contraception mishap occurred and a child was born. Good on him for stepping up to the plate as a father and he clearly he is taking it seriously looking pretty serious in most episodes. Anyway Mr Intensity finally cracked a smile when he saw the dish that Shannon Bennett was giving them to make for the elimination challenge.
It was a sophisticated twist on Steak and Chips. It was Steak with Bone Marrow, Jus Gras and Pomme Soufflees with a Parsley Puree. Jamie said this is the thing he likes to cook and eat. For Deepali it was the exact opposite as she has never cooked or eaten beef due to religious reasons.
Jamie has now learnt early in the competition not too listen to the peanut gallery. After listening to Sarah he stuffed up his Jus Gras after she told him to add more stock to his too thick sauce.
Surprisingly Scott who had been sick, wiped out most of his chicken fat for his jus managed to plate up the dish of the day. Rather surprising as he seemed all over the shop and was quite behind most of the time in the two hour challenge. He got lucky or showed skill and managed to get his Pomme Souflee’s done right the first time unlike Nick, Deepali and Jamie.
The steak was meant to be cooked medium rare and Shannon Bennett looked like the mad professor when he was examining the beef. Scott’s was apparently cooked correctly, but it still looked on the rare side. Shannon said Scott’s dish was a good effort particularly as it was by someone who had not heard of a pomme souffle let alone cooked one. Was he calling him a bogan? Or was he just insinuating he would not be the type to eat at his restaurant?
Nick’s was raw or as they politely said blue, but he did like the Jus Gras. At first Deepali’s was deemed to be fine but on closer viewing it was raw. Most of her dish was a fail but did think her jus gras was the best.
Jamie’s steak was deemed to be the best cooked. Gary said it was beautifully rested. It had been sitting there for a couple hours. He was criticised for lack of seasoning.
Scott was the first to be made safe and they were trying to create tension about who was going but it was no surprise that Deepali was eliminated as she has struggled ever since she made the top 24.
Deepali has started selling her home-made chutney’s around the markets at Perth.
