MasterChef – Mon, July 10

The three least impressive contestants from the invention test cook off in a pressure test set by MasterChef alumni, Kylie Millar. Who has cooked their last dish in the kitchen? Ben, Diana or Eloise?
Ben is still my final three pick and the judges tend to be swayed by Eloise’s tendency to put caramel sauce on everything, so I fear it may be Diana. However, Diana is superb at keeping a cool head under pressure so perhaps it will be Eloise after all.

Kylie, one of the original “Dessert Queens”, was in season 4 – the one that Andy won. Yeah, that one. Kylie made top 6. She actually went on to work as a pastrychef in some top restaurants.
See if you can pick her out from this cast shot – and then name as many of them as you can. (I get eight.)

A big fat egg yolk sitting in the middle of my dessert? Yuk, no thanks! I’m hoping for an Eloise departure, but I fear for Diana, desserts are not her thing.

Kylie is one of the finalists in the next Josephine Pignolet Young Chef of the year!! Only female chwf in the list. The first female winner was on the Immunity challenge with the French chef few weeks ago.

She didnt get to where she is now without doing her apprenticeship at Darren Purchese. Not like some contestants that think they could be great without experience. Reynold is one of those rare exception but he came from a family that already doing desserts

Thanks for the picJuz- still couldn’t quite place her, but she’s gone off to train properly so I’m disposed to like her.
Mind you, I thought the leaves with egg yolk looked foul.

Littlepetal

A lot of Ben tonight. Hopefully not his last cook

Liberty

Hopefully he’ll make a “triumphant” return from the brink.

Littlepetal

Eloise honeycomb and parsnip barks are overcooked. Ben didnt use the 2nd batch of honeycomb that he redo!!!! But the first batch will still taste good.

Littlepetal

What a stupid egg yolk

Brussellsprout

It’s like a joke, hey? Imagine saying “Tried a great dessert last night – resembled a pile of mouldy leaves, it had parsnips, honeycomb and marshmallow scrapings then once you’d raked them aside you saw an egg yolk that had been injected with stuff, sitting on top of panacotta”.
Nothing about that screams delicious to me.

Littlepetal

Diana is safe

Littlepetal

Is this suppose to be a dessert or a savoury dish. The egg yolk is a salted yolk.

I guessed is like the Chinese mooncake. A sweet cake but I like the salted yolk in it

Dirty Street Pie

LOL, George said let’s get Eloise kicked off! I know he meant started with plating, but it might be a sign. She has just stuffed up her egg yolk.

Dirty Street Pie

Ben is in trouble, his plating is bad. Hopefully it is more tasty than Eloise’s.

Littlepetal

Is up to the judges now. They can send Eloise or Ben home. For flavours, Ben got it. For presentation Eloise may be better

Liberty

Looking good for Ben. Flavour should always beat presentation (when it suits them). Ta Ta Eloise!

Littlepetal

Thank god for Kylie. Without guest judges, the 3 stooges will save Eloise

Dirty Street Pie

Kylie is wise, she knows how the Stooges operate. Although she would have benefited from being a blonde ponytail back in the day!

CAROL (WITHOUT THE E)

Phew! There’s the picture of absolute pure relief!!! (No spoilers here)

Jayblossom

I checked in here hoping to see who was safe, I’m watching on delay so I’m still hoping for Ben. I don’t think I can watch if Eloise is safe.

Terese

Great result: I’m happy 😉

Jayblossom

That’s good news Terese and good to know watching MC hasn’t set back your recovery.

Terese

Didn’t watch! In bed but checking in here and on Ben’s IG to get the result. Watching George and Gary squirm and try to save Eloise would have made me feel worse 🤢

Jayblossom

Yes, in the other thread I gave you my unqualified Doctor’s advice to avoid the show to prevent your condition worsening. Hope you feel better soon.

Terese

Thanks! Woke up feeling good.

Jayblossom

i’m hoping, I haven’t seen the end yet.

Carole Morrissey

Wow, Kylie’s come a long way. She’s done really well for herself. Good for her.
I was so worried for Ben for a while there. I don’t understand why didn’t he use the second batch of honeycomb that he did? I really felt for him when he finished his dish & it was so messy. Thank God Eloise had stuffed up a couple of elements & it was taste that mattered.
It was obvious that Diana was safe, she didn’t seem to muck anything up.

Carole Morrissey

Oh ok, I thought it looked like he’d put it in a container.

Smythe

Best results possible. Was concerned because they made a big deal about Eloise’s beautiful marshmallow and how colorful her plate was. At least this time taste won over chosen one.
As for that desert, it looked absolutely disgusting. Didn’t matter how it was plated or presented. Didn’t remind me of a nest but a fallen teepee or a burnt out campfire with litter and defecation. Yuck!

Smythe

Meant to write dessert, not desert, but then again that dessert looked like someone dumped some trash as well as relieved themselves in the desert.

Smythe

Kylie looked very different from how she looked in season 4. She’s filled out a bit.

brain dead dave

She’s “grown” on her journey. What I cannot forget is how Kylie lost her composure completely when Jamie Oliver walked onto the Ma$terchef set. Worst case of chefmania I’ve seen.

Lola

I can’t remember Kylie. The dessert looked most unappetising. Watched another channel but saw Eloise pontificating to the judges how cooking makes her so happy. Another one opening up a dessert bar. yawn!

Terese

I would love to know where all these “dessert bars” are! Talking to my niece the other day who lives near Melbourne city and knows it well she was saying the place is crying out for somewhere to go after a movie or show that isn’t a nightclub or bar. All these contestants talk big but we want to see some action.

Littlepetal

Again the show producers want to make it that their eliminated contestants are all having a careers in food or doing something big.
Yes, they ‘want’ to open a dessert bars/restaurants in future but not right after MC! Again they still need to actually work in a real restaurant to actually know how to run a business.

brain dead dave

The contestants are moved on like culinary cattle to Ten’s afternoon cooking shows, between the funeral and life insurance blizzard of advertising. Making rubbish with Ben and Emma, Lynton, Laura et al..

Jayblossom

My thought when I saw that was “Yep, there goes another one skipping any training/work experience and straight to bankruptcy …. oops I mean eatery.”

Bolders

It didn’t look like a nest it looked like a tepee.

brain dead dave

Anyone ordering that in a restaurant is going to be scalped.

Smythe

Oh no….one of the best eva amatas torched the nest:

Sara

I’m surprised ben got through with that awful mess. Hope they aren’t lining him up for the win.

Terese

I have a feeling they want him in the final two with either Sarah, Diana or God help me, Tamara.
