Cooking MasterClass Discussion For MasterChef Season 6 Top 22: You’re The Apple Of My Eye 


 MasterChef Season 6

Last week heralded a great start to Season 6 of  MasterChef!  And, I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed meeting all of the home cooks.  They all have great personalities and, of course, a true, raw desire to be the best cook possible. 

However, for me, there were two standouts – personality – wise: Tommy and Steven.  They are beyond hilarious.  And, I nearly panicked when I thought Steven  was permanently eliminated. It didn’t make sense – his personality, I felt , was integral to the success of this season’s show. 

And, sure enough, Chef Gordon Ramsay, assembled six eliminated home chefs for a Hail Mary cooking challenge. It was quite stressful because only two would be chosen at the end of the cook-off.  And, of course, Steven did indeed made the cut to the Top 22 along with his peer, Shelley. 

This week, the Top 22 are faced with their first Mystery Box Challenge that includes ingredients that could be found in the average home.  Then, for the Pressure Test, the contestants have to prepare their version of an apple pie.  

Oh Snap!  

You know, I am looking forward to this because it is actually a difficult pie top pull off.   You have to be a special culinary chemist to achieve the perfect balance between tart and sweet, Therefore, I will be anticipating some hints and ideas on this week’s episode, especially from Judge and Pastry Chef, Christina Tosti

MasterChef Season 6, featuring the Top 22, airs on Wednesday, May 27th from 8:00 – 10:00 PM on Fox. 

Below is the teaser for the Apple Pie segment. Enjoy!
