This post is two fold. Firstly, I may have mentioned I am a massive fan of masterchef Australia.
But a couple of days ago, there was a team challenege, where the cooks were seperated into teams of five. Given an open pantry, and each cook had fifteen minutes to cook. Sounds simple right? The twist on it, was the team were seperated and so didn’t know what the cooks infront of them were cooking,
So Chef one would decide the dish, start preparing it in the fifteen minutes, and then he would have 45 seconds to explain what he had done to Chef 2 and so on.
One of the teams started off with a coconut and mussle broth, which is nice and simple and very easy to pass on what was going on. BUT BUT John (one of the contestants) came in and decided sod that and changed the nice easy simple dish into lobster with a white chocolate veloute. He threw his team under a bus and then reversed back over them.
The poor lady at the end had five minutes to get a dish together, she managed to get something on the plate, but that team got sent to elimination John, didnt stand up and vote himself off. Nop, He took his whole team to the elimination challange and Jarod (who was the team captain) got sent home instead.
Anyway that is my outrage of the week (The Apprentice has started as well, so expect posts on that)
I have mentioned that one of the reasons why I enjoy watching Mastercehf Australia is for the reciepes, And I spotted a Butternut Pumpkin Soup with Smoked Parsnip Cream and Parsnip Chips, it looked amazing, so tonight I shall be making this.
I will let you know how it goes 🙂
Hope everyone is having a great weekend
