MasterChef Australia S13E45 Available after release date 4 June 2021
Nick Holloway brought three of the dishes from his restaurant for the contestants to taste and identify all 50 ingredients from each dish in fifteen minutes. Tommy, Elise, Sabina, Kishwar, and Linda had the most correct guesses and made it to the Top 10 while the bottom five contestants had 75 minutes to make a dish with the ingredients from Nick’s three dishes. Minoli chose to cook a Sri Lankan seafood broth with rice balls while improvising to make her coconut milk for her broth. Aaron planned to prep with prawns and was thinking of other elements to pair his dish. Scott selected the tropical fruits to make his pavlova with grilled pineapple and molasses lime granita. Pete opted to make a savoury curry ice cream with pineapple granita and peanut coconut crumble. Depinder did well with her curry but she strayed from reading the recipe for her gluttinous rice which became thick and claggy. In the tasting, the judges thought Aaron’s dish was nervous and like a weird party in a room nobody wants to talk to each other. His dish stood out as the obvious choice for elimination and as a result, Aaron became the fourteenth person to leave the competition.

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.
