MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 49 is the biggest Immunity Challenge of the current season. Four contestants – Kishwar, Linda, Sabina and Tommy, are a part of it. One contestant who gives the best will win the immunity from Sunday’s double elimination. The winner will also get $10,000 to shop groceries from Coles.
MasterChef Australia Season 13 judges Andy Allen, Melissa Leong, and Jock Zonfrillo inform the four contestants that Curtis Stone will join them virtually. Stone will be cooking a Roasted Chicken recipe which the contestants have to follow step-by-step. The Immunity Challenge is called Keeping up with Curtis Stone.
During MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 49 cook, Linda and Tommy have trouble following Kurtis Stone. At the beginning of the cook, they’re a bit scattered. Both of them struggle when Stone tells the contestants that they have to cut out Chicken Oysters carefully. Tommy ends up adding his oysters to the chicken broth unknowingly. However, they catch up with Stone’s pace halfway into the cook.
Sabina is calm and composed throughout the cook. She talks about cooking roasted chicken the same way Curtis Stone is doing and is confident that she will be able to put up a good dish. Kishwar also follows Stone properly until she cuts her finger while chopping. Unfortunately, she loses a lot of time and several steps while the nurse is applying antibiotic to her finger.
But Kishwar is in no mood to give up. Despite lagging compared to others, she eventually catches up with Curtis Stone. After a long and hectic cook, MasterChef Australia Season 13 contestants are relieved that it’s over. When the judges taste these four roasted chicken dishes, they’re tasty. But they also notice flaws in each dish.
Kishwar’s roasted chicken dish was delicious, but her sauce was not perfect. Tommy receives praises for the way he cooked his chook, but his chicken oyster is overcooked. Linda forgot to add some elements in her final dish – chicken wings and legs. Sabina’s roasted chicken impressed the judges a lot, but her potato fondant is undercooked. However, despite that, she wins the immunity from Sunday’s double elimination.
MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 49 ends with Sabina winning the immunity and groceries worth $10,000 from Coles. Then, the judges surprise the contestants by announcing a Masterclass featuring Andy Allen, Jock Zonfrillo and Nornie Bero.
