Recap of MasterChef Finals Week Episode With Maggie Beer's Chook Terrine

MasterChef Contestants Suffer Terrine Trouble in Finals Week

For a dish that’s all about sticking together, the MasterChef contestants came unstuck. The lovely Maggie Beer returned to the kitchen to present Kate Bracks, Michael Weldon, Alana Lowes and Dani Venn with their latest task: to replicate her chook terrine with garnishes in a pressure test. Michael, as the winner of Sunday’s cookbook-writing challenge, had a huge advantage going into the kitchen as he had tasted the terrine and was given the recipe before the girls. But even those factors couldn’t save him from possible elimination — due to all the contestants having undercooked terrine that the judges deemed weren’t worthy to be served in a restaurant, they will all be facing elimination tonight.

Time was a major issue for all of them — they had 2 hours and 15 minutes to cook Maggie’s dish, but as Alana pointed out at the beginning the actual cooking and resting time of the terrine takes 1 hour and 45 minutes. During the post-tasting deliberation, Matt Preston suggested that they take the terrine out of the equation and judge the contestants on their extra components, but the others disagreed. As the judges delivered their verdict, Gary Mehigan explained that the terrine had been tested 15 times and that an extra 30 minutes was added to the cooking time to make it achievable for the top four contestants. Do you agree with the judges’ decision to put them all up for elimination?

Tonight’s challenge will be a personal one for the contestants as they’re asked to create a food autobiography of their lives so far. It will be a three-course meal that represents their childhood, formative years and where they are now. And then at the end, four will become three as someone is sent home, so close to the end!
