For us Australians, for the last 3 months or so we have been glued to our televisions 6 nights a week watching Masterchef. I've tried a few recipes from the show, but there are heaps more I want to try, especially from the latest pressure test, the cake I've nicknamed; "The Cake of Doom". It is essentially a chocolate mousse cake, but inside there are 7 layers! Just looking at the recipe gives you a headache! However, I have vowed that one day I will make this cake of doom!
So it's down to 2 women, home cook and lovable mum, Julie, and my favorite from the start, Malaysian artist, Poh, (her website here).
Julie has been a solid performer, and has not lost a pressure test, or elimination round yet! The woman is unbeatable! She always seems to be in a tizz, and we all felt sorry for her when she couldn't finish plating up for celebrity chef, Donna Hay.
For me I'd love Poh to win, but I think Julie deserves it more. Julie has been there from the very beginning, hasn't been home to see her family, and being a mum of 3 boys, if anyone needed to go home to spend some time with their family, it would have to be Julie. Either way, whoever wins, I will be happy!
Some amazing recipes, some shocking recipes, but it's really brought lots of people together, especially my family, we would all rush dinner so we could sit down and watch it together.
It's just been confirmed there will be a celebrity version of Masterchef... hmm that will be interesting!
So on Sunday night, we will all be glued to our TV sets, waiting to find out who will be Australia's first Masterchef. I will be having a few people around, possibly making some food inspired from the series. The box of tissues will be on hand as with any good reality TV show there will be tears!
