Master Chef 2017: Home Cooking Week

It’s home cooking week with the lock up of the Sous Vida machines, the blast chillers, the ice-cream makers, yoghurt makers are all gone.

In everyone’s mystery box the judges have chosen three ingredients each. Here is the list:

Pineapple
Pumpkin
Parmesan
Shallots
Red chillies
Green beans
Anchovies
Olive oil
Yoghurt style cream

The funny thing is, if I have these ingredients in the fridge I’m high fiving myself for having enough ingredients to get dinner ready.

The rules are 75 minutes using at least one of the ingredients and you have the use of staples. They are only tasting the 5 most appealing dishes with the winner getting the advantage for the invention test.

Sarah
Prawns with a spicy salsa and vinaigrette

Pia
Ricotta doughnuts with a pineapple syrup.

Diana
Grilled prawns with Parmesan tuile and cream and anchovies sauce.

Michelle
Roasted pineapple dish

Eliose cooked a Pineapple Tarte Tatin with Pumpkin Chilli Caramel and Toasty Bits.

5 great dishes. The choice was hard.

Callan was way out of his league, one thing about Master Chef if you are just great at molecular gastronomy it’s going to get harder for him as the weeks go on.

Eloise cam out on top!
The three ingredients were from George’s Mums pantry.
Fennel, mussels or Ceder Street haloumi made from buffalo – and she chose the haloumi.

Rules:
Garden and pantry are in play.

Top 3 go into the first immunity challenge and the bottom three in tomorrows pressure test.

Pete was creating a Heston inspired lamb dish and apricot gel instead of a lime gel with Dukka – hey can can make this gel with out Agar Agar. It looked pretty awesome – plug product here LOL.
