Tonight it’s the Junior Masterchef Semi-finals and the pressure is on. With just one spot left in this year’s Grand Finale up for grabs, three of Australia’s top young cooks will do battle under the stunning Opera House sails on Sydney’s famous harbour. It’s their last chance to impress the judges by delivering their own five star signature dishes.
The three contestants only have two hours to design and prepare a sensational main course and dessert. The pantry is stacked with every imaginable ingredient – but our young cooks must create their dishes without a recipe.
Expect a Heston Blumenthal inspired dish, a rabbit feast and smoked lamb. The mini-chefs strive for greatness by attempting some dishes they’ve never done before but this might just spell out disaster.
Later, the kids showcase their dessert skills. A few errors ensue and the young cooks are really under the pump just to get something plated up, leaving the remaining spot in the Junior MasterChef Finale up for grabs by any of them. The tension and stakes skyrocket under one of the most memorable locations in Australia as they kids tackle their last challenge to get in to the final.
