#13 - Masterchef Australia 2011 Winner Revealed
8.30
Season 3 - Episode 86

The second round was an Invention Test, with the finalists having to produce something that represented how far they’d come in the competition. They had 2 hours and 15 minutes to complete their dishes. Michael made a butter-poached lobster with fennel, Kate a roasted breast of quail. Both finalists progressed well, although Michael’s decision to leave the tails on his leeks and add extra champagne to his sauce were ill advised. The scoring saw Kate racing back, with 9s across the board, but Michael could only manage two 8s and a 7. The final Pressure Test round welcomed one of the world’s best chefs, René Redzepi, to the kitchen, who lifted a cloche to reveal the supremely technical ‘Snowman’ dessert the finalists would need to make. Featuring meringue, yoghurt and carrot sorbet amongst its many elements, this was undoubtedly one of the trickiest dishes ever seen on MasterChef Australia, yet both Michael and Kate proved their worthiness by plating up incredible dishes. Once again scoring 9s, Kate took the Pressure Test win, and with it became MasterChef 2011 champion.

This is the only Masterchef to watch.

avatar

no other masterchef compared to this one. well filmed, truly human contestants and judges. I tried watching the other ones but this is the only masterchef series I truly love.

avatar

I'm actually very impressed by the judges, how down to earth they are and quite humble. I love them and love the show as well!

avatar

Does it ever end? No. It does not.

First impression, disappointed. No Gary, George or Matt. Gutted to find out that they are not judging this season (2020). New set of judges and to be honest the judges were a big big part of the show and sadly this now turns in to a watch whenever programme instead of a watch as soon as it airs.

I have seen every season of MasterChef Australia, but this year's is more about popularity then cooking skill. I am a fully qualified top chef and I don't like Melissa and her favouritism towards Po. They have had to adapt as during filming Covid 19 started, Jock and Andy are great judges and Chefs, Melissa was axed after a few seasons at the beginning. I don't won't Po to Win.

One of the *best* cooking shows ever! Everyone is respectful, friendly, positive; no cheap/fake drama. The show has creative ideas as well, to top it off, with all kinds of (cooking) challenges the contestants must overcome.

avatar

Easily the best MasterChef going. USA is obnoxious, Brit is repetitive and in the challenges they seemingly get lots more time and usually get to cook whatever they want. Kind of liked the South African one but I haven't seen it advertised in ages so I don't know if it's still on the go? But, Aus one is still the best :grin:

avatar

I love it! Probably the best Masterchef, and George, Gary and Matt are amazing

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
