The winners of the challenge tonight will go into an immunity pin challenge and the losers will go to an elimination this week.
The first dish they taste is Tamara’s Spicy pork with thai basil and betel leaf. The judges enjoy the dish. They also taste Diana’s deep fried baramundi on betel leave and sticky sauce. They also like this dish, it has a good combination of crunch elements. Next is Michelle’s baramundi Tom Yum inspired soup. Gary says it is well balanced and it was a clever dish. Karlie’s sticky rice dumplings are good but Samuel’s custard isn’t set properly in his coconut shell.
The winner of the advantage tonight is Karlie. Her advantage is to pick between two of David’s dishes, a curry or a soup. The contestants will then have to cook with the ingredients used in the dish. She chooses the curry. There are 23 ingredients that they can use, including pineapple, mud crab and chillies.
In this cook, there were several dishes in the top 3. These are the top 3 dishes: Tamara, Ben, Samuel. The bottom 3 dishes and going to tomorrow’s eliminattion are Sam, Trent and Jess.
