We now have our top 4 for MasterChef Australia Season 13. In MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 58, one contestant will get a chance to enter the finale directly. To achieve the same, they have to cook the best dishes of the day. Judges Andy Allen, Melissa Leong and Jock Zonfrillo, inform Elise, Justin, Kishwar and Pete about the episode’s challenge called Gemstone Affinity Duel Challenge.
The judges show ruby and emerald gems to the contestants for MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 58’s Gemstone Affinity Duel Challenge. Two contestants will get either of the gems, and they have to cook the dish that resembles their bright colours. Two contestants who cook the best dish will get in the second round. The winner of the second round will skip the semi-finals and directly enter the finale.
Pete and Elise get an emerald gemstone, and Kishwar and Justin get ruby. They all want to be one of the finalists and give their best in MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 58. Justin, Pete and Kishwar have a clear idea about what they want to cook. But Elise struggles to perfect her dish by running from the kitchen to the garden area.
For round one, MasterChef Australia Season 13’s experimental cook Pete gets creative again. He cooks Zucchini, Basil and Onion. Elise cooks Emerald Ravioli with Bush Pepper Butter and Geraldton Wax Oil. Elise cooks her pasta till the last minute, so she’s worried if it’s perfectly cooked or not.
From the ruby duet of MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 58, Justin cooks Pan roast duck with onion purée, pickled rhubarb and a plum gel. Kishwar goes down the memory lane of her college days in the UK and cooks Ruby Chicken with Jeweled Pilaf.
MasterChef Australia Season 13 judges love Pete and Kishwar’s dishes the most. They both enter the second round, in which they have to cook something inspired by Pearl. From round two, Pete picks up Oysters, and he has never cooked with them before. He struggles to open them up, but Andy’s tips help him speed up his cook later. His dish is called Leek and Oysters.
Kishwar decides to dedicate her dish to her mother. She cooks Tapioca Pearls with ginger lychee sorbet, rambutan, mangosteen, young coconut granita and jaggery butter. The cook is worried about her sorbet as it takes time to churn. But at the last minute, she finally gets it done.
The judges taste both the Pearl inspired dishes of MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 58. They find Pete’s dish flawless and make him the winner. Pete has now directly entered the finals and won’t have to be a part of the semi-finals with Elise, Justin and Kishwar.
