Brisbane schoolgirl Isabella was crowned Australia's very first Junior MasterChef tonight. After seven weeks, Jack and Isabella were the two left standing and had to create a dish worthy of a three hat restaurant, as well as recreate a dessert created by macaroon master Adriano Zumbo. Isabella took an early lead during the invention test where she made scallops with garlic custard, seaweed broth and lemon and orange jelly. The pair then had to recreate something called Pear Perfection. I got very excited with all the talk of "shoe pastry" and "shoe buns", until I googled and realised it was actually "choux" pastry. Despite Jack getting some scores of "11" Isabella still managed to win with a final score of 97 to 94 points. The 12-year-old and her twin sister Sofia plan to open a restaurant together featuring Sicilian cooking inspired by their grandmother. The show has been a ratings bonanza for Channel Ten with 1.5 million peeps tuning in last night and with even more expected tonight for the grand finale. The show has been so successful that the network has already announced that it will be back next year. Isabella won $15,000, while Jack will receive $10,000, with both prizes being put into trust funds. Sweet! What did you think about the finale? Were you Team Jack or Team Isabella? Sound off below!
