Week Nineteen Recap


MasterChef Australia

Week Nineteen (starting 25 November)

Watch episodes from this week Ondemand

Due to extended coverage of the Pike River Mine tragedy, we were only able to play two episodes of MasterChef Australia this week.

On Thursday, it was part two of the MasterClass with George & Gary.  They spend some time showing contestants how to identify different cuts of meat and also showed contestants how to make  Roast Pheasant with Pea Ragyu  and  Chocolate Fondant with Amaretto Milk. Courtney & Callum also attended a private MasterClass at Ash Street Cellar with Lauren Murdoch, where they learn to make different tapas dishes.


With only two weeks left until the finals, the final 8 have to excel to stay in the competition. In Friday's Mystery box the prize was bigger than ever.  The judges tasted all 8 dishes and Claire is revealed as the winner. She won the opportunity to  sit out the invention test and face the Celebrity Chef for the second time in a row

The invention test was based on the 7 deadly sins and Claire chose which order the other 7 contestants got to select their sin in. Courtney had envy, Adam - wrath, Callum - Gluttony, Aaron - pride, Alvin - greed, Jonathan - Lust, Jimmy-Sloth. They each had to make a dish that evokes each sin. Alvin's dish came out on top while Jonathan, Jimmy & Courtney are the bottom 3 and will face a pressure test on Monday.
