After the emotional get-together, the challenge starts. For the green team, Billie is the one doing desserts featuring coriander, Aldo takes over the entree with tarragon and Mindy and Daniel focus on the main with Thai basil. For the aqua team, Sarah is the one working on the entree with coriander, Alvin’s in charge of the main with Thai Basil and the dessert comes from Keyma using tarragon as Julie leads the team.

The best part of this challenge is that the diners, who are the loved ones of our contestants get to watch them as they cook before heading to the MasterChef restaurant to be served. After 90 minutes of cooking the first entree is served by the green team and it is Tarragon Emulsion with Pan-Seared Scallops and Pangrattato. The dish is beautifully cooked and flavoured but there are certain textural issues.

The entree from the Aqua team is a Cafreal with Marinated Kingfish and it is bang on. Thai Basil Eggplant Curry from the Aqua team lands up next as the main. The sauce for the dish is beautiful but, it somehow feels incomplete. Thai Basil Fish Curry by the Green team is the next main. It is another dish that the green team nails.

When it comes to desserts, Green team’s Billie serves a Coriander Spider which includes coriander seeds, vanilla parfait, coriander praline, apple-coriander sorbet, coriander meringue finished with a gin, coriander and apple fizz. In isolation, all the elements are good but, they don’t exactly come together to create a good balance.

The aqua team serves Tarragon & Pineapple by Keyma which includes tarragon ice cream, tarragon crumb, tarragon & lime syrup, caramelised pineapple and fresh pineapple salsa. It is a dessert well-loved and appreciated by the judges.
