The finalists vie for the title of Season 7’s MasterChef Canada, and the biggest prize ever awarded to the winner.
The episode began with some touching video messages for the three cooks from their families, who couldn’t be part of the cheering gallery in person this year due to pandemic protocols. But then it was time to get down to business. Andy, Christopher, and Thea faced three straight hours of cooking: an hour for an appetizer, an hour for an entrée, and an hour for a dessert.
The judges tasted the appetizers and entrées in private, but then tried the desserts in front of everyone. “Each one of these cooks in any previous season would have won the title with those dishes,” Aprile observed. But only one of them could win.
