MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 16 Review: Pasta-tively Amazing!

MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 16 commenced the Masters Week that will go on for a few days. Chef Andreas Papadakis, known for his amazing pasta skills, graced the show in the latest episode. Judges Andy Allen, Melissa Leong and Jock Zonfrillo announced that it is going to be a pasta-themed team challenge.

Andreas Papadakis made varieties of pasta with different types of flours. The contestants were divided into different teams – Blue (Depinder, Sabina and Conor), Grey (Kishwar, Tommy and Scott), Pink (Therese, Dan and Justin), Red (Elise, Brent, Aaron), Green (Eric, Linda and Tom) and Brown (Pete, Jess and Amir).

MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 16 was called Pasta Team Challenge. Each team was given 75 minutes to cook a three-course meal – pasta starter, pasta for the main course and a light dessert. The team that serves the least impressive meal will be sent for Pressure Test elimination in the next episode.

Everyone was quite excited to show their pasta-bilities and serve the best dishes to the judges. Out of the six teams, 4 decide to cook Ragu either with beef, pork, lamb or Osso Bucco. If you think you will get a break from ice cream in this episode, you are mistaken. All the teams make ice creams as their dessert. Because that’s the only sweet dish in the world, isn’t it?

The judges take a look around and check up on the contestants’ dishes. They are not happy with the way green, pink and brown teams are working on their ragu pasta. I wish there were room for improvement for them. But they were running out of time for sure. On the other hand, Conor’s blue team and Elise’s red team were on cloud nine during the entire cook.

Now, it’s the testing time of MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 16’s pasta dishes. The blue team tick marks all the boxes and wins the judges hearts with their dishes. Similarly, the grey team leaves the judges smacking their lips with their mouth-watering pasta cooks.

The red team also gives their best and are safe from the Pressure Test. The remaining three teams – pink, brown and green fail to deliver their best. But among them, it was the Pink team (Therese, Dan and Justin) that serve the least impressive dish. The pink team’s ragu is not up to the mark like other teams. But Dan’s irregular-shaped linguine also pushes them towards Pressure Test.

MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 16: What’s next?

In the upcoming episode, Kirsten Tibballs will appear on MasterChef Australia. She will give some challenging desserts for the contestants during the Pressure test round. Brent, who was in quarantine, will be a part of this episode despite winning the team challenge. Therese has an immunity pin. Will she use it and save herself from the elimination? Well, it will be one hell of an episode and I can’t wait to see who will be eliminated from the competition.

MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 16 is currently streaming on Disney+ Hotstar.
