Cooking MasterClass Discussion For MasterChef Season 6 Top 10 Redux: Family Reunion

 MasterChef Season 6Picture Credit: MasterChef/Fox
 Boy, last week’s episode was a bit of a roller coaster wasn’t it?   The Red and Blue Teams were quite tasked with their “home on the range” dinner and, then, the Pressure Test was a bit of a train wreck. 

However, I made one huge observation about a potential front-runner – Katrina!  I was so impressed with the leadership skills she imparted to her Team. She is a born leader, an exemplary cook, knows how to delegate without losing her mind or her focus and is supportive of her teammates in the process.  Sounds like a winner to me! Keep your eye out for this one. She is a rising star. 

Because the Pressure Test – creating a Fruit Tart – was such a disaster,  no one was eliminated. I thought this was a very wise call. And, I do love Christopher and Stephen so I would  have been upset to see them leave this soon. 

This week, the Top 10 cooks prepare family-style meals for special diners. Then the cooks create a gnocchi in brown-sage-butter sauce dish for the Pressure Test Challenge.  Gnocchi??  Are you serious?? My absolute favourite dish. I am salivating waiting for this episode to air. 

MasterChef comes to you on Fox TV on Wednesday, July 29th at 8:00 PM.  Come on cooks!  I need your input here. The ratings are wonderful so I know you are out there. Comment away!!
