Master Chef Australia
Thursday, Ten, 7.30pm
One wonders if smug Master Chef judges Matt Preston, George Calombaris (left) and Gary Mehigan were ever tasked with emulating a dish without even a glance at the recipe? One thinks not, and even if they did, it certainly wouldn’t have been under the glare of cameras and the watchful eyes of the nation. In fact, such a potentially embarrassing task involving the hosts/chefs would probably result in a ratings bonanza. But tonight, it’s the contestants who face this tricky test. The two losing teams from the previous challenge must replicate a signature dish by chef Dave Verheul, with the frantic cook who dishes up the least impressive imitation going home.
