We are very close to the finale of MasterChef Australia Season 13. MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 59 is the semi-finale episode. Contestants Justin, Elise and Kishwar, are a part of the challenge. One will say goodbye to the competition while the other two will join the finale with Pete. Judges Andy Allen, Melissa Leong and Jock Zonfrillo, inform the contestants that they have to pass the service challenge to enter the grand finale.
MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 59 is called Semi-Finals: Service Challenge. Elise, Justin and Kishwar have to make a three-course meal for 60 diners in 4 hours. The contestant that serves the least impressive dish will get eliminated from the show. Former MasterChef Australia Season 13 contestants are present in the gantry to cheer the three cooks.
Elise has a challenging cook, especially with her dessert. Her entree is called lentils and mushrooms, which was tasty but didn’t sing well as she didn’t cook them together. For her main dish, the contestant makes Venison with beetroot and blackberry. It’s another tasty dish; however, her Venison is inconsistently cooked. She had a tough time correcting her dessert called parsley semifreddo with figs. The judges love the flavours, but the dish has technical errors.
As his entree for MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 59, Justin cooks Cauliflower tacos with a mussel emulsion and pickled muntries. The judges aren’t a fan of his dish. However, Justin’s main dish, Spiced lamb backstrap with carrot purée, pickled turnip, lamb curry sauce, and native thyme oil, is a total winner. The contestant cooks Brie cheese ice cream with confit apple, apple gel, and walnut crumbs for his dessert. The dish has many tasty elements, but the ice cream is a bit icy.
Kishwar has yet another emotional cook in MasterChef Australia Season 13. Till the last minute, her entree isn’t ready. But she doesn’t give up and cooks Kingfish Ceviche in Green Water with Pickled Muntries and Lemon Balm. Her main dish is Goat Nihari with Naan Nawabi. For dessert, the contestant serves After Dinner Mint (pan with ice cream). The MasterChef Australia judges love all her three dishes.
It’s decision time for MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 59. Kishwar is the clear winner as none of her dishes has any flaws. Between Justin and Elise, the judges reveal that Elise’s dish has more flaws and hence, she gets eliminated. We now have our grand finalists for MasterChef Australia Season 13 – Pete, Kishwar and Justin.
MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episode 59 doesn’t end with the service challenge. The judges have some fun with the grand finalists. Kishwar, Pete, Justin, and Melissa will judge Jock Zonfrillo and Andy Allen as they compete in the kitchen. Jock has to cook with butter, and Andy gets tahini to feature in his dish. Jock cooks Coral Trout, Eucalyptus Beurre Blanc and Native Greens, and Andy makes Barbecued Rainbow Trout with Roasted Cauliflower and green Tahini. Both the dishes are delicious, but Jock wins the fun round.
In the second round, MasterChef Australia Season 13 grand finalists have to compete with both the judges. The second-round winner is the judges who cook Black Pepper Crab with Fried Bread and Spit Roast Chilli Caramel Pineapple with lime granita and coconut kaffir ice cream.
