Masterchef Recap for 8/30/2023
-Sav and MD are in the top ten after winning the immunity pin last week!
-Everyone else will have to cook a mystery box meal. Each box contains a different kind of fish.
-Reagan is highly allergic to fish and will need to take special precautions.
-MD chooses Grant and James to switch fishes. Sav chooses Kennedy and Reagan to switch.
-Everyone gets straight to work on their dishes as the judges walk around, asking questions, offering advice and giving commentary.
-Lizzie not being able to open wine and Joe helping her was so cute!
-As a fish lover, this challenge is right up my alley. I am loving all these different dishes.
-I am sooo worried about Reagan in this challenge due to her allergy.
-Sav and MD’s commentary reminds me of the two old dudes from The Muppet Show.
-Lizzie went completely out of the box and her comfort zone using food and ingredients she is not familiar with….and wonders if it will cost her in the end.
-Wayne: His blackened catfish with potatoes and pickled sides is delicious, balanced and next level.
-Kolby: His harissa spiced halibut is not only magical and rich, but one of the best plated dishes he has made thus far.
-Kennedy: Her fried sardines with tomato sauce and veggies is unique and full of flavor.
Wayne wins immunity and gets in the top ten!
-Grant: His mackerel is cooked all wrong and is just bad.
-Lizzie: Her red snapper and couscous is a complete mess and too simple in this point of the competition.
-James: His sea bass dish is all over the place with the sides being undercooked and the fish being overcooked.
James is eliminated.
-Season 11 winner Kelsey is back for this challenge.
-Lizzie fangirling is adorable.
-Kelsey now cooks at the Colts stadium, making next level stadium food—Cuban sandwiches, loaded hot dogs and Asian sticky wings, just to name a few.
-The challenge is for the remaining cooks to make their own next level stadium food from their region.
-Wayne has to choose someone to get a five-minute time out.
-Reagan’s seafood sliders sound great, but I thought she was allergic to fish?
-Jennifer seems to be falling behind and getting more and more frustrated.
-Jennifer’s frustration intensifies when she gets the time out penalty. She is able to pull herself together and work things out when she is back in the game.
-Lizzie has no sports stadium in Alaska, so she improvises and uses food trucks as inspiration.
-Kolby is also falling behind and worries about getting his dish done in time.
-Before long, time is up and the judges taste each dish.
-MD: Her mixed berry donut trio is delicious and fun.
-Brynn: Her lobster roll is ‘executed to perfection.’
-Jennifer: Her pulled pork sandwich is delicious and filled with flavor.
-Brynn wins the immunity pin!
-Kolby: His patty melt is a huge mess, but tastes good.
-Grant: His pulled pork tetellas are undercooked, but the pork is tender.
-Lizzie: Her King crab hushpuppies and sweet potato chips are raw.
Lizzie is eliminated.
More next week, stay tuned!
