MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 39 is a chance to win immunity for the upcoming elimination for contestants Depinder, Kishwar, Linda and Tommy. These four cooks won the Melbourne CBD Box Challenge in the previous episode. For the Immunity Challenge, judges Andy Allen, Melissa Leong and Jock Zonfrillo take the contestants to Lune Croissanterie.
MasterChef Australia Season 13 judges introduce all the contestants to Kate Reid of Lune Croissanterie. Reid is known for her pastry dishes with delicious twists. Depinder, Kishwar, Linda and Tommy have to bake and fill pastries in a unique way. The contestant whose pastry wins the judges and Kate’s hearts will not only win the immunity, but their dish will also be a part of Lune’s menu.
MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 39 is called Lune Lab Immunity Challenge, and the four contestants get 90 minutes to bake their pastries. Depinder chooses Half Pipe Croissant and fills it with Poached Pears and flavours of Ginger and Chai and a cake. Unfortunately, she forgets to add baking powder to her cake batter. But somehow manages to fix it. Overall, her dish looks yummy.
The Croissant Kishwar picks up is the regular one. She decides to give it a Bengali twist by adding flavours of rosewater. The cook plans to make Roshogulla as her filling. However, her ricotta dough has a lot of moisture that’s not good to make perfect dumplings. She has no other option but to skip making Roshogolla and decides to do cream filling.
Linda also has a tough cook in MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 39. She makes vol-au-vent pastry and plans to incorporate it with South-East Asian flavours – Mushroom and Red Curry with Chilli and Tomato Relish. However, she forgets to use the mould when she puts her pastry in the oven for baking. As the pastries are half baked, she takes them out and uses the mould so that they don’t rise in the middle. The cook is worried about the space inside her pastry to fill in her elements.
Tommy has the happiest cook at Lune Croissanterie. The MasterChef Australia Season 13 contestant cooks his version of a famous Vietnamese Bánh mì danish pastry. Instead of using pork, Tommy uses beef as a filling for his pastry. The idea of his pastry makes Andy, Jock, Melissa and Kate excited to taste the final dish.
It’s tasting time on MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 39. The judges loved Tommy’s Bánh mì danish pastry and found no flaws in it. Likewise, Depinder’s Ginger & Chai Spiced Half Pipe Croissant with Poached Pears had mouth-watering flavours. However, the judges felt that the pastry was lost amid so many elements in the dish.
Linda’s Mushroom and Red Curry vol-au-vent is another tasty savoury pastry of the day. However, judges point out the dense texture of her pastry as she had taken them out halfway to add in the moulds. The judges also like Kishwar’s Kolkata Crossaint. But the dish they loved the most belongs to Tommy. So Tommy finally won his first immunity in MasterChef Australia Season 13, and he will be safe from the upcoming elimination. His pastry will also feature in Lune Croissanterie’s menu.
