Well, some of those crab dishes in the Mystery Box Challenge last week were pretty sophisticated and amazing.  Some of the Southern -bred cooks had a distinct advantage because crab dishes are part of their food culture. 

The three best crab dishes were created by Amanda (who made an absolutely scrumptious crab cake),  Olivia (who made a delicious Crab Cake Benedict with Poached Egg and Roasted Asparagus) and Jesse ( who made a yummy Crab Dumpling Soup served with and Avocado and Cucumber Salad). 

The winner from this prestigious Top 3 was Jesse, who received a huge advantage in the Pressure Test.  As winner, he was not obliged to compete in the ensuing Pressure Test.  This Pressure Test involved the magical and colourful world of corn.  Also, Jesse was in charge of who would be making a savoury or sweet corn dish. This proved to be an interesting strategic moment for Jesse and generally, he made some wise choices. 

It was a great competition and the result was the creation of some very spectacular and unique corn dishes.  As Shelly and Stephen had the standout dishes of the night, they will be Team Captains for this week’s competition.  

However, at the end of the day, the Bottom 3, based on the judges’ decisions, was comprised of Veronica, Charlie and Justin.  And the eliminated cook was Justin.   Best of luck Justin – you have completed an admirable run on this show and I am truly sorry to see you leave.  At only 18-years-old, you have a wonderful career in the culinary arts in your future. 

This week, MasterChef invades Las Vegas  and you can see it all on Wednesday, June 17th at 8:00 PM on Fox. The cooks will be divided into 2 Teams and tasked with preparing food for 101 performers. The cooks face steak challenges that measure temperature and taste. 

Stephen looks like he means business in the picture above this article. Intense!  And I am loving Tommy In the group. This week’s show is going to be all kinds of fun. 

Where are all my food groupies?  This is one of the best shows on Television so make sure you tune in to this week’s show. And, don’t forget to post your insights in the comments section!
