MasterChef Australia S13E35 Available after release date 25 May 2021
Josh Niland returned to demonstrate the butchering of a Murray cod and utilise each part of the fish to make a three-course meal out of it which the contestants had to do the same across all three rounds. Aaron, Brent, Depinder, Elise, Justin, Sabina, Scott, and Tommy succeeded in the first round in 30 minutes while Kishwar, Linda, Maja, and Minoli redeemed in the second after 45 minutes. Amir, Dan, and Pete had one hour to cook with what is left of their cod. Dan had previously faced seven eliminations, but that is until he struggled to think of a dish in the third round of his eighth elimination cook until he decided to use the fish to make a laksa. When the judges tasted his dish, Josh admitted Dan did not highlight the fish head in his broth while Jock noticed the butchery of his fish. The dish did not meet the brief, and it was the lack of creativity which had undone his work.

MasterChef Australia Show Summary
MasterChef Australia has a different format from that of the original British MasterChef and MasterChef Goes Large formats. Initial rounds consist of a large number of hopeful contestants from across Australia individually “auditioning” by presenting a food dish before the three judges in order to gain one of 50 semi-final places. Entrants must be over 18 years old and their main source of income cannot come from preparing and cooking fresh food in a professional environment.
The semi-finalists then compete in several challenges that test their food knowledge and preparation skills. In Season 1, the top 50 competed until 20 were left, with the final 20 progressing to the main stage of the show. From Season 2 onwards, 24 contestants progress. The contestants will then be whittled down through a number of individual and team-based cooking challenges and weekly elimination rounds until a winning MasterChef is crowned. The winner plays for a prize that includes chef training from leading professional chefs, the chance to have their own cookbook published, and A$250,000 in cash.
