Last week, Logan and Sean were the winners of the Mystery Box Challenge. Boy, those cupcakes looked scrumptious, didn’t they?
As winners, not only were they dismissed from competing in the dreaded Pressure Test, but also they were asked to choose one of three dishes straight from Chef Gordon Ramsay’s Mum’s kitchen for their competitors. And she was on hand to watch the magic of these fine young cooks. And the winning dish was…?
Shepherd’s Pie! Ooo this was my Dad’s favorite so I was anxious to see what these brilliant young minds could create?
However, some of these youngsters were succumbing to the pressure. Poor little Sam had to restart his potatoes because he added too much milk. Poor thing. His comrades were trying to calm him down. So cute. Then, Chef Graham Elliott came to the rescue with a solution and all was well.
At the end of the evening, Sam and Mitchell, unfortunately, were eliminated from the competition based on the quality of their Shepherd’s Pie creation.
This week’s show showcases a trip down memory lane when Chef Graham Elliott reveals a hint of his past with Chef Gordon Ramsay.
And, it appears that young competitor, Logan, reminds Graham of how he was and is in terms of creating unique, palatable culinary delights. That must be a great boost for young Logan as he moves forward in the competition.
MasterChef Junior airs on Fox on Tuesday, November 25th at 8:00 PM. It really is a “must see TV” experience.
Oh, and if anyone wishes to recap and/or offer commentary for this show on a regular basis, I would be forever grateful. There must be a culinary expert or two out there willing to add their expertise and insight.
And, if you live in the USA, you can watch the entire Season 2 series on iTunes –and relive the magic of Season 1 via iTunes – .
Finally, if you love downloading books, I highly recommend MasterChef – The Contestants and Judges of MasterChef and My Italian Kitchen – Luca Manfé. As you recall, Luca won Season 4 through his unique approach to Italian cuisine. Bravo Luca!
