Another new week and we have MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episodes 5 And 6 to stream. In the previous episodes, contestant Trent Vu bid goodbye to the cooking reality show. He was the first elimination of the thirteenth season. Well, judges Andy Allen, Melissa Leong, and Jock Zonfrillo came up with exciting challenges for our home cooks.
MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episodes 5 And 6 commenced the ‘Superstar week’. Top reputed chefs from worldwide will give tough and creative cooking challenges to the contestants. Due to the pandemic, these Chefs were not physically present but graced the show through the hologram. Episode 5 was called ‘Cryptic Elimination Challenge: Nigella Lawson’s Toasted Marshmallow and Rhubarb Cake’.
Via hologram, chef Nigella Lawson interacted with the contestants and the judges and presented them with some tricky challenges. The first challenge was to guess the main element of 15 different biscuits. Whoever makes the maximum right guess will be saved from the second phase of elimination. Sadly, Brent, Conor, Maja, Tom and Yo Yo failed to guess correctly and landed in the second round.
A sneak-peek of MasterChef Australia Season 13 Episodes 5 And 6:
The second round was tougher for the MasterChef Australia contestants. They had to bake Nigella’s Toasted Marshmallow and Rhubarb Cake. The twist was that they wouldn’t be given any recipe, won’t be shown the picture of the cake. Nigella only described how the cake looks and some key pointers to keep in mind. Unfortunately, Yo Yo fails to bake the cake up to the mark and gets eliminated.
Episode 6 of MasterChef Australia Season 13 is called the ‘Flavour Combination Team Challenge’. The superstar chef who graced the show via hologram is Yotam Ottolenghi. The contestants are divided into three different teams of 6 and one captain – Grey, Orange and brown (Aaron, Conor and Elise as the captains). These teams were given Yotam’s 3 flavour bombs – numbing oil, chipotle peanuts and fenugreek marinade.
The three teams have to cook a three-course meal in 60 minutes, inculcating one of the flavour bombs in each dish. The twist here is that the first 3 contestants would cook for the first 30 minutes, and the next 3 will replace them for the second half and complete the cooking. The captains will be there for the entire 60 minutes to guide them and finish the idea of the dishes they had planned.
Orange and Brown teams led by Conor and Elise won the challenge and made a safe place for themselves in MasterChef Australia Season 13. The grey team consisting of Katrina Dunnett, Tom Levick, Dan Dumbrell, Therese Lum, Pete Campbell, Linda Dalrymple and Aaron Sanders have gone into the elimination round.
