Julie Goodwin Seafood Stew Elimination Challenge — The contestants aside from Theo faced a two-round challenge. In round one, they took turns identifying the ingredients from Julie Goodwin’s seafood stew by taste. Antonio, Declan, Jessica, Robbie and Rue were the first five to guess incorrectly and were sent to the second round where the judges revealed they would be joined by Larissa who has to survive to get back into the competition. In this round, they had 75 minutes to cook a dish using the ingredients from Julie’s stew recipe without the under bench staples. Robbie’s seafood and tomato soup was hailed dish of the day, while Larissa’s pelmeni and broth were praised, earning her the right to come back. Rue’s mussels with white wine and tomato sauce received good compliments as well as Declan’s prawn and snapper soup though his flatbread was more of a crispy bread and the wrong bread to serve, Antonio’s snapper empanadas had great flavours but were too oily. Jessica’s pomodoro had the flavour in the sauce but her decision to make an eggless pasta with bread flour proved to be her undoing as the pasta was criticized for being the wrong texture, resulting in her being eliminated.

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.
