MasterChef August 8, 2019 Eliminated Fred Chang (Recap)
Hey, “MasterChef” fans. Tonight, August 8, 2019, another elimination episode for this 10th season did indeed air with judges: Gordon Ramsay, Aarón Sanchez, and Joe Bastianich. Tonight’s episode kicked off with Micah getting to pick someone from his winning team to participate in tonight’s elimination challenge.
Micah ended up picking Subha because he didn’t follow instructions and what not. Next, it was revealed that the contestants had to make a delicious dish out of the following main ingredients: Shellfish, filet mignon and black truffle.
Gordon demonstrated how he would use those ingredients. He made a quick surf and turf truffle dish really, really fast. Bri was really impressed.
Next, it was revealed that the contestants had 45 minutes to complete their dishes. Bri said she felt comfortable making the dish. Bri told Joe and Aaron what she was making at one point. They liked what they heard.
Nick told Gordon what he was making. Gordon gave him some advice. Subha told Joe and Aaron that he was making some sort of shrimp dish.
Shari told Gordon she was doing something involving mushrooms, wild rice, caramelized carrots and more. At one point, Shari told Gordon, “If I go home,I deserve it.”
Noah told Joe and Aaron what he was making. They gave him some help with his dish and had him taste the truffle. They said it taste like dirt. Ugh.
At one point, the judges said Fred is stabbing himself in the foot by trying to make fresh noodles from scratch. He also ran into issues with cooking the meat.
Bri said she might be in trouble. She fell behind. Shari’s carrots burned, but she said she wasn’t thrown off by it.
Gordon said a couple of Subha’s dishes were looking good at just over 3 minutes left. However, Subha had trouble plating at 25 seconds left, but he got it done.
Once the time was up, the contestants had to present what they cooked. Fred was up first. He presented a ginger and butter filet mignon dish.
Gordon said, “The noodles are the star. The filet turned grey.” Joe said, “The filet is raw, but it’s seasoned well.” Joe got a chance to taste a part of the filet that was cooked. Fred was in big trouble for presenting raw meat. That’s dangerous.
Shari presented a Porcini-Crusted filet mignon and wild rice dish. Gordon said, “Visually, it looks nice. You cooked the rice beautifully. I wish everything else tasted better than the rice.” Joe said, “It’s so good.” Aaron said, “It’s very unconventional but smart.”
Nick presented a filet mignon and brown butter dust dish. Aaron said, “It’s beautiful and gorgeous.” Gordon said, “The beef is cooked beautifully.” In regards to the butter dust, Joe said, “It doesn’t taste like anything.” Aaron said, “It just doesn’t fit.”
Noah presented a butter crusted filet mignon dish: Gordon said, “It’s delicious.” Aaron and Joe agreed with Gordon.
Bri presented a pan fried filet mignon and butter poached dish. Gordon said, “The filet is delicious. It’s cooked beautifully. The pomme puree doesn’t taste like a truffle puree.” Joe and Aaron agreed. They really criticized Bri for not using more of the truffle in her dish. It was almost non-existent they said.
Lastly, Subha presented a filet mignon and white asparagus dish. Gordon said, “The filet is cooked beautifully. The green beans and asparagus don’t go together. The filet is seasoned well.” Joe said, “It’s spiced in a way that feels more exotic.” Aaron said something about it being way too spicey.
Next, the judges deliberated and decided to immediately save: Subha, Noah, Shari and Nick. That left poor Bri and Fred as the bottom two. Then ultimately, the judges eliminated Fred. So, Bri just barely escaped elimination.
I had a feeling when Fred presented that raw meat, he was done. That’s a big no, no. On a bright note for Fred, Gordon did tell Fred that he made a call to chef Christina Tosi to see if he can go work for her. So, that was nice as hell. Fred was ecstatic.
