The Disney Prince chef may be home but that’s not the end of the fairy tale for one fan favorite

This was a two-round elimination for the seven contestants, while Keyma took the pompous position at the top. Each contestant is asked to take a token from a bag and stand in the order in which the numbers they draw: this order will determine how quickly they are served at the grocery store.

The tokens of each cook correspond to the ingredients and cloche, which they line up in front of. The ingredients have been selected by Hugh Allen, Vue de Monde’s executive chef, who almost certainly likes to call himself “Hugh de Monde.” Hugh is a very handsome man and today’s challenge is to cook without getting lost in his eyes. For the purposes of today’s challenge, he is also known worldwide for his ability to list random ingredients.

Each contestant must choose whether to cook with the ingredients in front of them, or take the plunge and choose an unknown ingredient under the cloche. BUT, if they don’t qualify for the balcony in the first round, they will have to cook in the second half with ingredients they didn’t choose. Once again, MasterChef prepares contestants for life in the real culinary industry, where the risk of possible cooking with surprise ingredients is an ever-present danger for restaurant owners.

Also, as usual, one of the ingredients is a Death Material, which kills anyone who touches it.

Most of the contestants stick with the material in sight, but Julie and Sarah opt for cloches and are punished with beets and lemon myrtle each: a warning against snobbery to all. The top four plates would be safe, so the bottom three qualified for round two, which meant there was a better than fifty percent chance of getting into round two, meaning the bottom three would be an absolute loser.

Alvin started the challenge in a positive mood, stating that he knows what corn tastes like and is over everyone. She’s about to make creamy corn soup, because she doesn’t think elimination day is the time to make something tasty. Instead, Dan cooked with wattle seeds, which was a huge advantage since no one had eaten them before, so no one could tell him the taste was wrong. “I think I can revoke one today,” Dan said, risking arrest under the public indecency laws. He went on to claim he wasn’t here to sock the centipede and was sedated for his own protection.

Meanwhile Billie has decided to play to her strengths, so it’s just going to be sweet and cool. This is the best dish, as the ingredient is Jerusalem artichoke, an item rarely used in sweet dishes. Or savory dishes. Or by anyone for anything. Mindy, on the other hand, has been given celeriac, which she wisely burns.

Melissa stopped by to tell Alvin that the dishes were very simple. In a panic he ran into the kitchen and looked for a hole in the wall to escape. In desperation he seeks the last refuge from the bastard: making chili sauce.

“I didn’t want to be in the second half, so I had to make sure the Jerusalem artichoke was panna cotta flavor,” said Billie, which is honestly an odd statement to make. There are indeed countries where making Jerusalem artichoke-flavored panna cotta can get you sued.

Sarah is in a dilemma, because the ingredient is lemon myrtle, also known as: leaf. How to combine leaves and fish in a fun way? The answer is that there is no way to do this, there is no way. But Sarah never shied away from defying the laws of science. While Dan was baking a cake or something I guess. Kinda hard to care, to be honest.

With 15 minutes to go, Keyma was telling everyone they were doing really well, but on the floor they knew his words were hollow and meaningless. Mindy desperately wanted to impress Hugh with her celeriac, not realizing that Hugh would never be impressed no matter what she did. He hates everyone in this kitchen. He walked over to Julie’s bench to discuss with Jock how bad his judgment was. But Julie thinks she’s going to have a lovely dish in her hands, and hopefully once it’s there, she can transfer it from her hands to some kind of plate.

With three minutes remaining, Billie’s panna cotta was too hard, Julie’s terrine tasted good, and Sarah still wasn’t sure how to pronounce lemon myrtle. But there was no time for obsession: the clock was up and the judges were about to drop their jaws.

The results of the first round were: Alvin’s dirty soup was amazing; Cake Dan is fine; Mindy’s awful celeriac is beautiful; Aldo puree is rude and therefore immoral; Billie’s panna cotta is, in Melissa’s words, “Unpleasant”, which means “to rebel”; Sarah’s fish was suddenly edible; and Julie’s terrine has insufficient bits, which doesn’t sound like a compliment. And that’s how Aldo, Billie and Julie had to enter the ENDGAME (Samuel Beckett, 1957).

Aldo now has to cook with cucumbers. Billie had to cook with wasabi. Julie must cook with “lion’s mane mushrooms”, a fictional ingredient from the Elder Scrolls video game series. The trio is annoyed at cooking each other, rather than any of the remaining five contestants, which they hate.

Julie examines the lion’s mane mushroom and finds that it is a hairy fungus, which is therefore the result of a sexual congress between the fungus and the African lion. Julie was cooking mushrooms in mushroom sauce, even though what she was supposed to be cooking were immunity pins with balcony sauce.

From the balcony came a call from Sarah: “Make the most of your time!” The three cooks on the floor slapped their foreheads: if only they had thought of that! “Thank you Sarah!” they shouted in unison, grateful for such profound advice.

There were still 25 minutes to go and Julie, while happy with her mushrooms, was also well aware that she had immune pins and a functioning brain, which should pair well. “I don’t want to be the reason that one of my friends will leave today’s competition,” he said, but he needn’t worry about the score: the reason one of his friends will leave the competition is, as in every elimination, God’s cold and indifferent cruelty. indifferent. Finally realizing this, he fiddled with the pin, to a sigh of relief that spread across the land.

When Julie retires to a well-earned balcony, tragedy strikes Billie, who has forgotten his madness. The beans now have to be re-roasted and Billie has a panic attack. With ten minutes to go, Jock and Hugh visited Aldo to make sure he didn’t have enough time to finish his meal. Hugh informs Aldo that his meal is in danger of being boring, forcing Aldo to challenge him to a duel at sunset.

Five more minutes and Billie still had a lot to do, which was pretty slow on his part because he was making beef tartare, a dish that didn’t even need to be cooked. He was still better than Aldo, who had to cook cucumbers, one of life’s most futile activities.

Time is finally running out, and the ultimate question – whether unflavored cucumbers can overpower the awful taste of wasabi – is about to be answered. Aldo’s cucumber crab appeared first. “Wow, I want another one,” said Jock. “I thought the presentation was really wow,” said Melissa. “I’m very rich and not interested in any of this,” said Hugh.

Billie now had to put his wasabi tartare in front of the judges, in itself a great act of bravery. “This is delicious,” said Jock. “Scent and subtle,” said Melissa. “I went to take a nap,” Hugh said. The judges agreed that Billie’s meal didn’t leave them choking or coughing, and what more could one ask for from dinner?

Time to announce the final judgment. Melissa asked Hugh if he was impressed by what he saw today. “Sure, if you want,” said Hugh, before heading off to play Angry Birds. But also, it turned out that even though Aldo and Billie both cooked a dish that the jury found quite convincing to taste good, Aldo’s dish, which was full of cucumbers, was a little more offensive. So he had to go home, stripping the competition of one of his most endearing accents. But Billie persevered to put something inappropriate in the ice cream another day.

Listen tomorrow, when everything seems meaningless without… him.
