Just desserts for Ash­leigh

Townsville Bulletin - - LIFESTYLE -

ELIM­I­NATED in a “dev­as­tat­ing” dessert dis­as­ter, MasterChef’s Ash­leigh Bare­ham is all smiles this week af­ter start­ing work at her dream job at Om Nom in Mel­bourne along­side top pas­try chef Christy Tania.

It’s a far cry from the tears and heart­break of Monday night’s Pas­sion Flower dessert elim­i­na­tion, one of the tough­est seen so far this sea­son on the show. With 12 el­e­ments and 31 steps, cre­ator Dar­ren Purch­ese rated the dish as “9.9 out of 10” in terms of dif­fi­culty.

“I think it was def­i­nitely 9.9 out of ten and maybe even a lit­tle bit more!” elim­i­nated top eight con­tes­tant Bare­ham, 24, said.

“I was dev­as­tated to go and would have loved to stay but I was ac­tu­ally re­ally happy with how I went in the kitchen.”

Bil­lie McKay barely broke a sweat as she blitzed the com­pe­ti­tion with an al­most per­fect recre­ation of the dish.
