Fiona had a slow start but she finished strongly and cooked the chicken perfectly but her dish lacked detail. Despite a strong start, Kate failed to read her recipe thoroughly, she wrapped up her chicken too much that it didn't cook properly and she ended up serving the judges raw chicken although her vegetables were perfectly cooked. Carrie struggled through the whole challenge, she cooked the chicken perfectly but all the flavour leaked out in the water bath because she left a hole in her chicken's skin and her vegetables were undercooked."

Although both dishes impressed the judges, Aaron's had better flavour and presentation, and Marion's was thicker and considered to be \"gluggy\" by the judges."

Season 6 - MasterChef Australia
2014-05-05
"Contestants started Series 6 with a challenge to cook their signature dish in one hours, vying for automatic entry into the Top 24. Originally there will be twelve contestants who passed the auditions but Matt announced to the other remaining contestants that they still have a chance to present their dishes where two contestants (to a total of fourteen) joined the Top 24. Eighteen contestants, who were given a second chance, will cook again in the next episode."
2014-05-06
"The eighteen second chance contestants compete in a two-round challenge for ten remaining spots in the Top 24. The first round was an Invention Test where contestants have 75 minutes to cook a dish from a choice of three core skills (filleting, butchering and baking). Jamie, Brendan, Scott, Brent, Kira, Renae and Nick delivered the best dishes, received an apron each and joined the Top 24. The five other contestants (whose dishes had technical issues that failed to impress the judges) will not compete in the second round and were eliminated. The six remaining contestants faced a Pressure Test to claim the last remaining spots in the Top 24. They have two hours to recreate George Calombaris' dessert \"Lemon, Lime and Bitters\". Steven's version of the dish highly impressed the judges during tasting, winning him an apron. Afterwards, the last two aprons were given to Sarah and Byron."
2014-05-07
"The Top 24 got their first challenge, the five winners from previous seasons each chose their personal core ingredients for the Mystery Box: Julie Goodwin chose lemons, guava was selected by Adam Liaw, Kate Bracks pick white chocolate, hazelnuts were chosen by Andy Allen and Emma Dean chose rhubarb; with one hour for the contestants to cook their dishes. Georgia, Ben, Sarah, Tash and Nick were each chosen by the previous winners as the Top 5. It was Nick's salted hazelnut crumb, lemon curd and white chocolate mousse that won him the advantage for the Invention Test. The theme for this next challenge was to cook a dish from the past (over present and future) chosen by Nick with 90 minutes to cook. The top three dishes cooked by their makers will be saved from tomorrow's first elimination challenge. In the end, the judges save Laura, Sean and Jamie from elimination as the Top 3."
2014-05-08
"The remaining contestants faced a three-round elimination challenge set by in-house mentor Kylie Kwong based on Chinese cuisine. The first round was to cook fried rice with different ingredients in the pantry that are not used in Chinese cooking in 30 minutes with the top twelve contestants will be safe from the next round. For the second round, each of the remaining contestants must name a Chinese ingredient. The first three people who guessed the ingredient incorrectly will compete in the final round. Deepali, Rachael and Brendan have 60 minutes to cook their Chinese dishes. They were able to use the ingredients that were guessed correctly in the second round. Rachael's Szechuan Pepper and Coriander Crab with Chinese Broccoli was praised by the judges. Deepali served only three dumplings with less filling that had technical issues, despite praising the judges with its taste. Brendan, who had inexperience with Chinese cuisine, produced a dish with under-cooked pork loin that missed the mark on the theme of the challenge which left the judges' decision to eliminate him."
2014-05-11
"Contestants have 30 minutes to cook a dish with the use of the following ingredients from the Mystery box: chicken, licorice, pineapple, pistachios, cinnamon, beetroot, yogurt and thyme. Top three dishes were named and Kira won the challenge. She choose eggs from a choice of breakfast ingredients for the contestants (except Scott) to cook a breakfast dish in 60 minutes. The winner will grant an advantage for their first team challenge. Kira was among the top three contestants but it was Sarah's scotch quail eggs that won the advantage. Deepali, Nick and Jamie were sent to elimination after their dishes have serious issues. Because of his decision to sit out of the second challenge, Scott will also be sent to the Pressure test as followed by the rules of the competition."
2014-05-12
"Shannon Bennett presents his Filet De Boeuf Et Pommes Souffle Au Jus Gras for Deepali, Nick, Jamie and Scott to recreate in one and a half hours. This pressure test struggled all of the contestants: Scott made mistakes during the challenge but his steak and pommes souffl\u00e9es impressed the judges apart from the jus gras. Nick's steak was very rare and it wasn't cut correctly, after he repeatedly burnt himself in his cooking time. Deepali's steak was unevenly cooked and her pommes didn't rise. Jamie's pommes lack salt and his jus gras is too thick. In the end, the fact that her Indian religion forbids Deepali to either taste or cook a steak is proven to be her disadvantage, and that is enough to seal her elimination."
2014-05-13
"At St Kilda Beach in Melbourne, the 22 contestants face their first team challenge with four hours of prep time and service to customers at two restaurants: Captain Baxter (from upstairs) and Republica (in downstairs) both headed by executive chef, Matt Dawson. Two teams will get identical pantries to create their own menus and select pricing. The team that earns the most money, wins. After winning the Invention Test, Sarah earned the advantage of choosing her own team and a restaurant of choice as a team captain. She chose Nick, Kira, Sam, Jamie, Sean, Colin, Georgia, Emelia, Renae and Ben to cook dishes for Republica as the Red Team while Tracy volunteered as captain of the Blue Team to the remaining cooks in Captain Baxter. After both teams struggled, both of them produced the best dishes but Tracy's strategy of pricing failed to attract other customers handing the win to Sarah's Red Team with $2477 to the Blue's $1952 that sent them to elimination."
2014-05-14
"Members of the losing team faced a two-round elimination challenge to cook a dish with the use of one snapper in 30 minutes. Tash, Emily, Laura, Rachael and Amy have the top dishes, however the other remaining home cooks were also declared safe after Nicole took a crucial risk of using a whole snapper for the first round, despite the judges' pleading. Unfortunately, that risk didn't pay off as her dish lack crispness in the fish due to the overuse of the hot oil dressing and without any of the remaining protein to cook for the second round, Nicole was automatically eliminated from the competition."
2014-05-18
"Maggie Beer's choice of ingredients in the Mystery box contains octopus, dark chocolate, pears, parsley, bay leaves, capers, Japanese plums, vinno cotto and Maggie's signature ver jus. After 60 minutes was given for the contestants to cook their dishes, Kira, Sarah, Emily, Scott and Rachael have the standout dishes. It was Scott's chocolate ganache tart that won the challenge. The Invention Test was set by chef Frank Camorra of MoVida and from a choice of Spanish ingredients (chorizo, rabbit and citruses), Scott chose chorizo. With all the contestants chose to pair the key ingredient with squid for their dishes, it was Laura, Tracy and Amy that won over to the judges with a chance to cook for immunity. Jamie was criticised by the judges on his dish and for the use of the nightshade flowers, but it was Sean, Nick and Sarah who were sent to elimination for serving their dishes with under-cooked squid."
2014-05-19
"Sean, Nick and Sarah have two hours to recreate Lake House executive chef Alla Wolf-Tasker's dish \"Rivers and Lakes\". Sean's curing of both fishes praised in judging but his consomm\u00e9 was cloudy and lacked depth of flavour while Sarah's elements of her dish impressed the judges but her watercress puree was overly acidic and lacked vibrance. However, those errors in their singular elements outweigh Nick's poor plating and missing elements along with his soggy crispy skin and deplorable watercress puree that saw him eliminated."
2014-05-20
"Laura, Tracy and Amy compete in the first round of immunity. They faced a Small Mystery Box Challenge containing tiny ingredients (quail, quail eggs, melba toast, honey, candied beetroot, chili and finger lime) using small cooking equipment and required staples (without using anything from the garden) to cook their amuse-bouches in 20 minutes. Despite the critique on the presentation of her dish, Tracy won the challenge with her quail ballontine to cook against Ollie Gould of Stokehouse in Melbourne. The chef decided to cook a dish with fruit in one hour and Tracy have one hour and fifteen minutes to cook her dish from the chosen key ingredient. Tracy's pastry for her Lemon and Lime Curd Tart with Candied Orange Peel and Italian Meringue praise the judges but the meringue was over-whipped and the curd was runny, given a score of 20. Ollie's Seared Pork Loin and Summer Fruits with Pickled Beetroot and Prosciutto have notable flaws but his perfectly cooked pork scored 24 to win."
2014-05-21
"The contestants were split randomly into two teams and had to cook a three-course meal for 30 guests from two restaurants in Melbourne: Cutler & Co. and Ezard. The Blue Team, led by Sarah and her vice-captain Tash, were assigned to cook dishes from Ezard while The Red Team, led by Jamie and his vice-captain Emelia, were assigned to Cutler & Co. The captain and vice captain went to the restaurants and had to memorise the directions of the recipes from the chef of each restaurant (Teage Ezard and Andrew McConnell of Cutler & Co). They then returned to the MasterChef kitchen to relay to their other team members instructions to be able to replicate the dishes in 90 minutes. During service, the Red Team's watercress puree for the entr\u00e9e was bitter while the Blue Team's plum broth for the main course had an odd taste. In the dessert, both teams have technical issues with their dishes - the Red Team had issues of demoulding their panna cottas, missing out the caramel topping and there's error in their syrup while the Blue Team's honey jelly didn't set and their sorbets were melting but their cheesecake and crumb were well received in judging as the Blue Team wins while the Red Team were sent to elimination."
2014-05-22
"Ten contestants from the losing team competed in a three-round elimination challenge with Fast Food as the theme of this challenge. Each contestant chose ten different ingredients for each round with different time limits. Tracy, Emelia, Sam and Ben had the top dishes and were safe in the first round after 30 minutes. Jamie, Georgia and Brent were next to be declared safe in the 20-minute second round while Sean, Emily and Steven cook in the 10-minute third round. Steven, despite the issues of filleting his fish, delivered the best dish while the judges critique Sean's inconsistent cooking of the liver but Emily's banana fritters had technical issues after she mistakenly fried the plantain - the stiffened texture and loss of sweetness in the dish seal her elimination."
2014-05-25
"George sets up the Mystery Box Challenge for the nineteen remaining contestants to cook a dish with leftovers from his restaurant the Press Club. Emelia, Kira, Renae, Sarah and Colin were chosen as the top five with Emelia's avgolemono dish that won the advantage. She chose to remove the proteins (including gelatine) from the pantry to cook the inventive dishes. This invention test was a struggle for some of the contestants but it was Tash, Brent and Sarah who delivered the top three dishes while the judges slam Jamie, Steven and Scott's dishes, sending them to the Pressure test."
2014-05-26
"Adelphi Hotel's Om Nom Dessert Bar pastry chef Christy Tania from Melbourne presented one of the signature desserts from the restaurant, Mango Alfonso composed with 10 elements for the bottom three contestants to replicate the dessert. Steven earned praises with his elements of the dessert. He was safe as Scott (who missed out the other elements of the dish and his choux pastries were overmoist) and Jamie (who overuse the shiso cremeaux in his pastries and his mango and shiso sphere toppled on the dish) meant they're the bottom two. The main focus of this challenge was the choux pastries (one of the key elements in the dish) and with his second take of pastries failed to thrive in judging, Scott was eliminated."
2014-05-27
"Brent, Tash and Sarah compete in the first round of immunity. They had to cook a dish with their choice of one of the five different chillies with different cooking time limits. Sarah and Brent both lacked spice in their dishes as Tash won the challenge with her Pineapple and Chilli Sorbet with Macerated Fruit to cook against Benjamin Cooper of Chinchin in Melbourne. He decided to cook with spices for the second challenge. Tash's Twice Cooked Spice Chicken praise the judges for the complexity of flavours and her other elements of the dish. Benjamin's Brazilian Seafood Stew was also praised for its complexity and despite the criticisms on leaving the bones as well as the requirement of rice in the dish, he beats Tash with 28 points to 24."
2014-05-28
"Darren Purchese mentored two teams of contestants to cook a garden-themed four-course dessert with the use of savoury ingredients: carrot, thyme, ginger and blue cheese in each course. Emelia and Georgia, both thrive in desserts, elect themselves as captains, and instruct their teams to design their desserts in each course. Each team have their assigned different garden theme: Georgia's Red Team were assigned for \u201cSunday in the garden\u201d desserts while Emelia's Blue Team create \u201cFootprints in the garden\u201d desserts. The first course was to create an edible dessert centerpiece with the use of carrots. For the second course, teams prepared their desserts with thyme as the key ingredient. The third course was to cook a dessert with ginger and the use of liquid nitrogen. In the final course, they prepared a hot blue cheese dessert. While both teams were praised each for their two courses, the combination of the Red Team's inconsistent presentation in their centerpiece and overuse of the salt in their thyme biscuits sent them to elimination as the Blue Team wins the challenge."
2014-05-29
"Georgia, Sam, Rachael, Brent, Colin, Tash, Sean, Amy and Kira have 3 minutes to identify and write down 23 ingredients of an unknown dish, revealed to be Louisiana Gumbo, while blind-folded. The contestants who guess all the ingredients correctly will not cook in the second round. Contestants who have correct guesses will receive their ingredients to create their dishes in 45 minutes. Both Rachael and Colin delivered their standout dishes while Sean, Brent and Kira were the bottom three. Brent served his char-grilled prawns too hot but his excellent performance in the kitchen was enough to be declared safe. Kira's kransky sauce failed to impress the judges despite burning her hand during the challenge. Ultimately, it was Sean who had a lot more mistakes during the cook than Kira as his overcooked prawns and under-cooked bland flatbread sealed his elimination."
2014-06-01
"Contestants have 30 minutes to cook a dish with the option of choosing between the ingredients from the Mystery box (tofu, paw paw, zucchini flowers, Vegemite, choko, cardamom and pheasant) and the given ingredients from the cutting board in their benches (potato, pumpkin, lamb, brussels sprouts). Georgia, Amy, Jamie and Sarah were among the top five dishes using the Mystery Box ingredients but it was Emelia's use of the \"safe board\" ingredients that won her the second time for the advantage of the Invention Test with the option of choosing the core ingredient, cooking time and cuisine of her choice. She chose a Thai prawn dish with 45 minutes to cook. However, Steven was feeling unwell and opted to sit out of the second challenge therefore, he will be sent to the Pressure Test. It was Brent, Rachael and Renae who delivered the creativity with their Thai prawn dishes. On the other hand, Ben, Byron and Sarah delivered technical errors and were sent to elimination."
2014-06-02
"Byron, Ben, Steven and Sarah compete in a two-hour challenge set by Saint Crispin chefs Joe Grbac and Scott Picket. They give the option to the contestants to pick one of the two dishes of their choice: sweet and savoury. Byron, Ben and Sarah chose to cook Scott's venison dish (savoury) while Steven picked Joe's rice pudding (sweet). All contestants struggled in this challenge, each have critical flaws on their dishes however Ben (who had all the elements of the dish over his burnt cr\u00e9pinette) and Sarah (who received praise from the judges apart from her missing figs and a small strip of cling wrap left in her dish) were first to be declared safe despite their under-cooked venison. Byron was condemned for his panicked plating besides his missing figs while Steven, despite being motivated with his choice of dish, flustered and delivered his dessert with poorly executed elements. Ultimately, Byron's cooking of the venison saved him in the competition and Steven was eliminated."
2014-06-03
"Rachael, Brent and Renae compete in the first round, taking turns of naming different cheeses. Renae and Brent failed to answer their next guesses, and Rachael won the chance to cook for immunity against chef Matt Stone from Greenhouse in Perth. He chose cheese (over ham) as the core ingredient. In one hour, he cooked a Carrot and Manchego salad while Rachael cooked a Lobster Mornay and Cheese Souffl\u00e9 with Grilled Mango. Matt's salad was praised for the quality of the dish and highlighting the core ingredient, but lacked balance to taste. While Rachael's dish earned praises with her lobster and grilled mango, the conflicting flavours to her cheese souffl\u00e9 on her dish meant she lost with the lowest score of 15 to Matt's 23."
2014-06-04
"Four teams compete at the Queen Victoria Market in a team challenge: to cook a dish with the budget of $700 for ingredients with the team who make the most money wins. By the time they bought their ingredients, The Red Team attempted to debate between two options for their dish to sell. The Green Team spent all their money to buy ingredients for their dish without a captain in charge. During preparation time, tensions between two members of the Red Team (Rachael and Tash) on a task of cooking the elements of their dish. In service, the teams (except Yellow) began losing customers due to the poor service in preparing their dishes. Both the Green Team (now led by Amy) and the Yellow Team (with Sam as captain) spent their budget for ingredients. Therefore, the popularity of their dishes earned the highest money with the Yellow team winning with $3884.35 to Green's $2328.14. The strategy of saving money on ingredients to allocate to profits didn't work out for the Blue and Red Teams, earning the lowest money each. In the end, the profit of $1600 mark the Red Team captain Brent's fifth time to face elimination with his team members."
2014-06-05
"Rachael, Ben, Brent and Tash faced off in an auction challenge. Each contestant got 100 minutes of time and had to bid for proteins, produce and condiments in 5 minutes. Tash had 30 minutes to cook with mackerel, Asian vegetables and sauces, Rachael was left with 50 minutes to cook with pork belly, forage vegetables and pantry staples, Brent had 50 minutes for rib-eye steak, root vegetables and spices, and Ben got 55 minutes to cook with pigeon, nightshades and dairy. Eventually, the verdict came down to the contestants who excelled throughout the challenge with their dishes and unlike Rachael, she struggled during her cooking time and produced a dish that lacked quality. It was enough for the judges\u2019 decision to eliminate her from the competition."
2014-06-08
"Contestants have 30 minutes to cook a dish with the use of nutritious ingredients from the Mystery box (like goji berries, kale, yogurt and lentils). The top five were Emelia, Ben, Colin, Renae and Brent. Despite Emelia's third appearance in the top five dishes, she lost to Ben who delivered the best dish the judges had eaten this season. This Invention Test was to create a sweet and savoury chocolate dishes in 60 minutes as Ben will select the teams of three. He picked Emelia and Jamie as his team members. Ben groups Kira, Tracy and Tash; Laura, Byron and Sam; and Brent, Renae and Sarah while Amy, Colin and Georgia were defaulted as the fifth team. It was the latter team who delivered the best chocolate dishes as well as their Chocolate Fettucine with Lamb and were named the top three. While their respective fellow team members\u2019 desserts were praised by the judges, Tracy's thyme venison dish lack chocolate flavour in her chutney but in a close decision, Byron and Sam's chocolate chicken roulade dish was deemed as the worst, sending them along with Laura to elimination."
2014-06-09
"Byron, Laura and Sam compete in a two-hour challenge set by famed celebrity chef and world entrepreneur, Nobu Matsuhisa to recreate four plates of sushi: six nigiri and six vegetable rolls without a recipe needed, serving to each judge and Nobu. All three struggled throughout the challenge, but Laura's performance in the kitchen impress Nobu and was declared safe with the quality of her dish despite missing out one of the elements while both Byron and Sam were criticised for their inconsistent presentation of their plates. A single snapper bone that was found in one of Sam's dishes resulted in her elimination."
2014-06-10
"Georgia, Colin and Amy compete in the first round of immunity, using a randomly selected kitchen gadget of their choice: a blowtorch, a smoking gun and a foam gun to cook their dishes in 45 minutes. Both Colin and Georgia's use of the foam gun and the blowtorch respectively had issues with their dishes, and Amy's use of the smoking gun in her puree won the challenge to cook against guest chef Jock Zonfrillo of Orana. Amy was given a choice to either pick between one of the two pantries with 15 minutes less to cook her dish or let the chef pick his choice with the regular cooking time limits. She gave the pick to Jock who chose the \u2018pauper\u2019 ingredients containing native Australian ingredients over the \u2018prince\u2019 ingredients containing expensive ingredients. He cooked a Roast Beef and Pumpkin with Native Succulents while Amy prepares her Pan-fried Leather Jacket with Potato Puree and Apple Sauce. Jock's dish impress the judges for its presentation and taste despite the beef being too raw. While Amy was praised for the quality and depth of flavour to her dish, she lost to Jock with the score of 24 points to the professional's 27."
2014-06-11
"Two teams had to cater two dishes (entr\u00e9e and main) and prep a two-tiered wedding cake to 80 guests to celebrate Margaret and Eddie's 60th Wedding Anniversary at the Ascot House in Victoria. Within three hours of planning and preparation of their dishes, Blue Team member Brent wasn't feeling well and decided to withdrew the entire challenge while the Red Team struggle for improvements in their entr\u00e9e. Both teams struggled to prep their main courses and their cakes. While the judges noted the Red Team's main course being less over cooked and their presentation of their cake, it was the Blue Team's lack of execution in their main and under baked cake that left them to elimination."
2014-06-12
"The contestants faced a two-round Elimination Challenge. The first round was to name a classic dish correctly where they will write their answers on cards. Colin, Tracy and Sarah failed to guess their correct answers and were sent to second round. They receive their ingredients from the dishes that were correctly identified to cook their dishes in 60 minutes. Tracy's Chicken Ballotine earned positive reviews while the judges criticized Colin's Chicken Pithivier however, they couldn't taste Sarah's Chicken Roulade due to the protein being raw. Though she had been motivated throughout the competition and in team challenges, Sarah was eliminated despite being a top favourite to win the competition."
2014-06-15
"Dubbed as the first celebrity chef, Marco Pierre White served as the guest chef for the week. He presented his ingredients (white port, lobster, ginger, coriander, vine tomatoes, olive oil, carrots, cucumber and mixed spices) in a Mystery Box for the contestants to cook their dishes in 75 minutes. With Emelia, Kira, Brent, Amy and Laura named the top five, Marco picked Tracy's dish as the sixth participant for tasting. He and the judges then picked Laura as the winner of this challenge after Marco was impressed in her recipe profile. The Invention Test was to cook Italian dishes with only five ingredients from the pantry in one hour and from a choice of Italian ingredients (porcini mushrooms, prosciutto and bottarga), Laura choose the mushrooms. She then won the second challenge along with Tracy and Ben for a chance to compete for immunity while Amy, Byron and Tash's dishes had technical errors that sent them to elimination."
2014-06-16
"Amy, Byron and Tash had two and a half hours to recreate one of Marco's famous dishes from his best-selling cook book, White Heat. Amy was first to be declared safe after delivering the similarity to the dish. Tash's plate had two underwhelming elements and she missed out the turnips while Byron, despite having the best presentation of the dish, ran out of time to serve enough sauce. Unfortunately, the lack of sauce derailed the harmony of the elements and failed to match the quality of Marco's dish which was enough for Byron to be eliminated."
2014-06-17
"Marco demonstrates his knife skills to Laura, Tracy and Ben on how to dice an onion perfectly which they had to do the same in order to advance in the second round for immunity. It was Laura's time and precision of finely dicing her onion that won her the chance to cook against Michelin star chef Donovan Cooke of The Atlantic Restaurant in Melbourne. Laura takes the pick and from the core ingredients of the surf \u2018n\u2019 turf dish, choose fish (over red meat) with the same cooking time limit for her and the chef to cook their dishes. She cooked Pan Fried Snapper with Anchovy, Tomato and Caper Vinaigrette with Fennel, Orange Salad while Donovan cooked his Pan Fried Barramundi with Seafood Broth and Summer Vegetables. Despite Laura overcooking her fish apart from receiving praise for the balance of flavour, Donovan ran out of time to plate up and served his dish five seconds late. As a result, the judges couldn't taste his dish and Laura automatically wins the Immunity Pin with 26 points out of 30."
2014-06-18
"Two teams were instructed by Marco and the judges to compete in a British-themed challenge. They had to prep two entr\u00e9es, two mains and a dessert for 60 diners each before service in the Taxi Kitchen restaurant at Federation Square in Melbourne. By two hours and forty-five minutes, the Blue Team are still deciding their menu and struggled to prep their main. During service time, the Blue Team served their main dish with raw lamb. Despite receiving praise for their dessert, it wasn't enough to overcome their bland scallop entr\u00e9e and overcooked lamb dish against the overall praise of the Red Team's dishes that lead the Blue Team to elimination."
2014-06-19
"To escape elimination, Laura decided to use her immunity pin. A contestant had to pull out one of the knives from the block with a name of the dish. They have 60 minutes to cook their assigned dish, risotto. Kira's risk of producing a Quinoa Risotto and Tomato Salad delivered the dish of the day as she was declared safe along with Colin and Emelia. The bottom two is between Tash and Brent. His risotto was under-seasoned but while her risotto had the smooth consistency, Tash overpowered the acidity of the dish by pouring too much wine in the rice. The lack of balance from both the lemon and wine overwhelm the delicate flavours of her dish that resulted Tash to be eliminated from the competition."
2014-06-22
"This Mystery Box Challenge had a twist: contestants get to decide who will step up to compete in the first round where each must answer a trivia question and only two will remain to face off in the second round. The winner will be safe from elimination and an advantage while the loser was sent straight to the Pressure Test. Tracy and Renae were left to compete in round two where they had to create a dish with the ingredients from the Mystery Box. Both of them were praised for their outstanding presentation in their dishes, but the cloying sweetness in Renae's dish land herself to elimination as Tracy won the challenge. The other contestants were grouped into three to compete in the Invention Test. Each team member randomly pull out a knife corresponding the three choices (cuisine, appliance and cooking method) to cook two dishes. Jamie, Emelia and Brent receive high praise with their two American dishes and the use of the planetary mixer and a stove-top, making them the Top 3. Ben, Colin and Kira also receive praise for their Moroccan dishes with the oven and the ice cream machine. Laura, Georgia and Amy struggled throughout the challenge (due to their use of the deep fryer and unfamiliarity with Vietnamese cuisine). Despite receiving praise on both of their dishes, their prawns were uncoated and overcooked, joining Renae to face elimination."
2014-06-23
"Laura, Georgia, Amy and Renae had 75 minutes to recreate a rose tea-smoked chicken dish by award-winning Michelin starred Indian chef Vikas Khanna. Renae and Amy's take of the dishes received high praise and were safe despite minimal errors in their respective plates as the final decision came to Laura and Georgia (both of them had lack of experience in Indian cuisine). While Laura's sauce was overcooked, her cooking of the protein saved her and Georgia's overcooked chicken sealed her elimination."
2014-06-24
"The fourteen previously eliminated contestants arrive to compete for a second chance to return to the competition. They get to choose between two Mystery Boxes to cook their dishes. The original box contained ingredients of their dishes that had them eliminated to recreate their dishes in 60 minutes and the steel box with ingredients that produced their best dish with only 30 minutes to cook. Furthermore, only ten contestants who used the wooden box while four used the steel box but it was Brendan, Rachael, Sean, Georgia and Sarah who redeemed themselves to recreate their dishes after their respective elimination. It came down to the chicken dishes of Georgia and Sarah and despite her gritty puree, it was the latter's complexity of her sauce that beat Georgia to narrowly won Sarah's comeback in the competition."
2014-06-25
"For winning this week's Mystery Box Challenge, Tracy gets to sit out the team challenge. As there won't be an elimination challenge just for the week, teams under the mentorship of Curtis Stone compete in raising money to be given to the Starlight Children's Foundation for charity. Each team had to cook a three-course meal with the use of citruses. The red team, led by Sarah, struggled throughout both prep and service time as they had issues with their dishes. The blue team, led by Jamie, did well throughout the challenge however, their dishes also had issues but the judges were impressed with the quality of their dishes. Both teams raised a total of $48,350 and the blue team won the challenge with a $20,000 donation given to Bendigo Bank. They will join Tracy to compete for tomorrow's special challenge."
2014-06-26
"The judges introduced a special apron to the contestants. This golden apron will grant the wearer numerous advantages and control throughout next week's challenges. Tracy, Jamie, Emelia, Brent, Amy and Renae must cook in three rounds a three-course meal to win the apron. Brent, Amy and Renae failed in the entr\u00e9e round while Emelia didn't make it through the main round, leaving Tracy and Jamie to compete in the dessert round. While Jamie's soft chocolate mousse had issues, it was the balance of sweetness in Tracy's cookies and cream dessert that impressed the judges and she won the golden Apron."
