Cooking MasterClass Discussion For MasterChef Season 6 Top 10: Moo – Vers And Bakers

 MasterChef Season 6 Top 10 Last week, the Top 3 Rice Dishes were created by Hetal, Tommy (who created a rustic Jambalaya) and Claudia (who created a dessert dish – Arroz Con Leches Morrotes).  The winner was Tommy and his dish will be featured in the September issue of Family Circle magazine.  He has a dream of creating a Creole Cookbook and this is the beginning of his dream. How fantastic for him. 

As winner, Tommy had a huge advantage in that he was part of the deciding process in the ensuing Pressure Test. This involved popular culinary combos selected by the judges, one of which was selected by Tommy for the remaining 10 cooks. He chose a Peanut Butter And Jelly combo. Oh yea! 

However, he was able to save one cook from this test and he chose Claudia who passed on the save?  In order to prove herself?  Really?  So strange. This is a a game of strategy and you have to play. I don’t remember anyone ever refusing a save in this situation before. 

And then something else happened  that was a first.  Shelly forgot the main ingredients – Peanut Butter and Jelly – in the kitchen, so she had to borrow some from the other contestants. Oh boy. That was a major oops wasn’t it?  

When the Pressure Test was completed and before the cooks were evaluated by the judges, Tommy was given the opportunity to save one cook. He decided to save Nick.  

The Bottom Two dishes, as determined by the judges, were created by Shelly and Sarah.  In the end, the person going home last week was Sarah. Best of luck to her in the future

This week, the Top 10 cooks create steak meals for 101 Cowboys and ranchers; the losing team participate in a pressure test baking tarts. Talk about diversity in the menu lineup! 

MasterChef comes to your TV on Wednesday, July 22nd at 8:00 PM on Fox. It is such a fabulous show – please do yourself a favour and tune in. You will not be disappointed.
