Masterchef Australia – Marco Makes Them Sweat Over Their British Inspired Menus

It is ironic/amusing that while Masterchef Australia presents itself as a “nice” television show, they are boasting about Marco Pierre White’s more unsavoury workplace practices. Saying “this is the man who made Gordon Ramsay cry” and “he is feared”. If any other boss did that there would be allegations of workplace bullying. In fact working in his kitchen probably was unhealthy for a lot of his staff. Of course we only hear about the success stories and in fact Ramsay seems to have continued his schtick but taken it that one bit further.

Having said that respect to Marco  who is working his butt off on his week on Masterchef Australia. He is not just on set for a few moments before running off to do a supermarket commercial or brand endorsement.

The latest episode was the perfect example of Marco sweating it out in the kitchen with the two teams during prep and service, and he was actually teaching them stuff.

The teams had to come up with a three course British inspired menu to serve to customers.

It was Emelia heading up the blue team as she wanted to impress Marco. Emelia has a lot of confidence and saying to camera how she had so many ideas going through her head, then it cuts to her asking Colin for ideas for a second main course.

Her and Tash clearly don’t get on. She would not agree on any of Tash’s dessert suggestions. Emelia was propping for a pudding in the end they settled for an Earl Gray Jelly with Strawberries. When it was praised even then Emelia could not bring herself to acknowledge what a great job Tash did.

Emelia went for efficiency over flavour. She had the red team, captained by Renae, freaking out at the pace they were getting thei entrees out.

The blue teams entress were Steam Scallops with Pea Shoots and Zucchini described as flavourless and the mini salad on the plate was praised more then the Chicken Sausage.

Red team’s entrees were Parsnip Soup with Bacon and Stilton topping which was dish of the day and Ben under pressure managed to razzle out some well cooked Garfish.

The red team started falling apart at mains. With Jamie who had been moved to help Ben with the entrees having issues with getting his roast beef cooked in time. The first lot was raw but in the end he was plating up some nice looking beef. The red team’s Bangers and Mash looked great on the plate however the duck sausage was raw in the middle.

The blue team put out a beautiful looking Roast Lamb. Brent had slogged it out for over two hours frenching the lamb which Marco thought took him far too long.

The judges loved the lamb but George thought the Pork with Peaches was like “pork with a dessert”.

It was down to the desserts and Tash’s dessert was described as “elegant” and “refreshing”. The blue teams Brandy Pudding with Butterscotch Sauce was did not get such good reviews. George thought it should be drenched in sauce. 

At this stage there was no clear winner and it was announced that the red team had won both in flavour and how they operated in the kitchen therefore blue team is up for elimination tonight.

It’s best to avoid such a prpcess that takes
