Masterchef Australia – Jock Zonfrillo Sets Renae’s Pulse Racing
Jock Zonfrillo a chef from South Australia gave Renae a hot flush when he walked into cook for an immunity pin. She even admitted to fan girling and for a person who was almost 30 it was almost embarrassing. But you could not blame her.
If you missed the episode here he is:
But who was going to get to cook against him. Colin, Georgia and Amy would have to duke it out in a food challenge that was all about the wanky cooking equipment. Georgia took the blow torch, Amy took the smoker as she thought Colin would want it, and he was left with the foam gun. He was not happy as he had not used one in thirty years. He said he made whipped cream but more likely he was using it like we all were and sucking on nitrous oxide.
Amy was not happy that there was no quail but then decided to cook with the scallops. The kicker for this challenge was you could only go to the pantry once. Hence Georgia came out with a huge basket filled with ingredients.
Colin overcooked his chips, in fact they were just on the non-burnt side as was Georgia’s first attempt at meringue. Even on the second go of blowtorching the meringues they turned brown.
Colin’s chip was overcooked and George said that it was all he could taste and then he told him “good job”. Georgia made Candied Carrot with Carrot Puree. Gary said it was a pretty dish but you have not really shown them much skill with the blow torch. Kylie said all she could taste was the roasted carrot.
Amy presented another smear on the plate with her Scallops with Smoked White bean Puree. Gary said scallops were cooked perfectly. Matt thought it was a classic flavour match and that it was the best dish she had cooked in the competition. It was no surprise she won and got the opportunity to cook for an immunity pin.
And then the hottie walked in. Jock is from Scotland and owns restaurants in Adelaide. Good thing he was good looking as I could not understand a frigging thing he said.
The theme was Prince and Pauper and Amy let Jock pick so she could get the extra 15 minutes cooking time.
Jock chose pauper particularly as it had some indigenous ingredients which he likes to cook with. Though not sure why these ingredients are considered pauper. Amy decided to make Leather Jacket with Riberry and Apple Sauce, and Jock was making Chuck Steak Salad and was going to serve up the steak raw.
Amy plated up her signature smear with her fish on top of a puree. Gary said the fish was perfectly cooked.
Gary thought Jock’s Beef and Pumpkin Salad was the prettiest dish he had seen in awhile. They also liked the flavours.
Of couse there was the farce of the judges pretending they did not know who had cooked which dish.
Amy was scored eight from all three judges which gave her a 24 out of 30.
Jock won as Matt gave him a nine whilst Gary gave him an eight and George gave him a ten. Just because there was no carbs on it.
