MasterChef Australia S13E59 Available after release date 18 June 2021
Elise, Justin and Kishwar prep a three-course meal to sixty diners and the judges in four hours. Justin made a cauliflower taco, a lamb backstrap dish and a Brie cheese ice cream. Elise uses native Australian ingredients by prepping venison and parsley semifreddo with figs. Kishwar chose a kingfish ceviche for entree, a goat mint curry for main and a fennel and bay leaf ice cream for dessert. Elise changed the flavour of her ice cream to pistachios when she missed out on chopping the herbs, but as service starts, her lentils and mushrooms for entree had technical errors. While cooking her main, Elise rushes to prep her venison, however, one of the meats was dry. After the judges tasted her dessert, her semifreddo lacked flavour. There are technical errors in each of her dishes, however, overall, the flavours stood out. The Melbourne lawyer finished in fourth place one night short in the Grand Finale, which means Pete, Kishwar and Justin are the Top 3 grand finalists. Kishwar earned overall praise with her dishes, with Justin applauded for his main dish despite the technical errors in his entree and dessert. They joined Pete to compete for the coveted title.

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.
