Master Chef Wild West Week

This week on Masterchef the top 15 Visit WA and do one of the most adventurous weeks the contestants will have and only one will go home.

Sunday 30 June, 7.30pm

The remaining 15 contestants find themselves at the seaside in Fremantle where they have to summon their inner hunter-gatherer and head offshore in fishing trawlers to catch their own dinner.

The group is divided into two teams, with each having just 60 minutes from when they dock to prepare and serve a meal for 30 salty sea dogs who will determine their fate. The team which gets the most votes will have the chance to cook for immunity tomorrow.

Monday 1 July, 7.30pm

The losing team from yesterday’s wild west challenge are all vying for immunity tonight, or so they think. When they arrive at Guillaume Bistro it is revealed that in today’s challenge only one contestant has the chance to win an immunity pin, and they have to decide who deserves it most.

That contestant will have support from Guillaume himself, but has to battle it out in the kitchen against Russell Blaikie from Must Winebar, and with a 30 minute advantage. If Russell wins, no one is safe from elimination.

Tuesday 2 July, 7.30pm

There’s a cattle battle today on MasterChef Australia, with the 15 remaining contestants heading to Kylagh Station in York where they must cook lunch for 20 hungry stockmen and women.

They have just 60kg of produce from which to create a buffet lunch. The clock is ticking as the workers herd cattle towards the cook site for their lunch break. The judges will decide the losing team, which will face elimination tomorrow.

 

Wednesday 3 July, 7.30pm

In the wild west week elimination challenge today, three contestants face off at Matt Stone’s restaurant The Green House. Matt has designed a six-dish tasting plate menu using local WA produce, of which each contestant must cook two and serve to 80 diners tonight.

They have just two hours prep time for a 90 minute service. Matt joins the judges in critiquing their dishes and their overall performance in the kitchen, with the least impressive contestant being eliminated.

Thursday 4 July, 7.30pm

In tonight’s MasterClass, we wrap up wild west week on Perth’s picturesque Cottesloe Beach. Joining the judges is guest chef Brendan Pratt of Indiana’s. Brendan puts slow roasted lamb shoulder to good use in sliders and croquettes.

Kate Lamont from Lamont’s Wine store also serves up by the seaside with two different quail dishes.
