I normally hate reality game shows, but masterchef hooked me in good and proper. Good on Julie for winning - $100k plus training in the top restaurants in oz is pretty sweet. I reckon the real money will be made when she puts out a cook book - she is the peoples hero, an average working mum with 3 kids and a lot of average working mums will be inspired by her story. Poh and Justine can mash my potatoes any day of the week. There is a bit of hoo hah about the final being rigged and the result being pre-determined but I think on the night Julie was the clear winner. The taste test she won - no question about that. The chook dish really showed her growth and development as a cook - she went for a much more complicated dish than poh, and I think the 1 point difference appreciated the fact that they were both delicious but that Poh went for the safer more familiar option whereas Julies transformation from meat and 3 veg mum cook to gourmet goddess with the chicken in procutto was clear. The choco challenge was a bit closer - Poh's tart was clearly superior but I think tempering the chocolate half pipe was the real challenge and Julie nailed it - the choco was glossy and snapped nicely, whereas pohs was a bit dull and soft. Whether she was the most talented chef in the comp is hard to say, but I think she clearly won last nights challenges. Anyone else see the final? What did you think?
