It was silly doing that. I went and did the washing up in protest. Saw a few minutes of Renovators and all they did was cry Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

I was looking for Adrian Zumbo and Maggie Beer also. Didn't see them but it happened so fast.

I was a bit annoyed at them sticking the Renovators right in the middle if masterchef before the finale.

I am not saying the renovators is a bad show but I just got a little annoyed having to wait for it to air before
the finale of masterchef.

Did anyone see Adrian zumbo when all the chefs came in ? I couldn't see him.

Yep Rumi, I so wanted to see Michael win too.

In any case, not too shabby to receive a scholarship to train/work in Gary's restaurants - other top chefs who appeared on the show also seemed pretty impressed with his talent and attitude. Many opportunities will open up to him from here I think.

Oh well, congratulations to Kate although I would have preferred to see Michael win.

Got a bit sick of Kate squealing all the time ...

I like them both too. Probably lean a little towards Michael though. Hayden was my favourite

Hi Alinta

I really like Michael too! I think the 2 most deserving are in the final. But out of the two, I really like kate and I hope she pulls it off.

Should be a great final - they are both very talented. And it won't be over for whoever "loses"

Probably a bit late to start a thread..but anyway!

Team Kate! All the way!! Very Happy

Hey Boots- I've watched this show from the start- wouldn't have noticed The Renovators except that it follows Masterchef!!!

The finalists are two of my favorite contestants and I'd love to see Michael win.

They made a slightly different version to my Chocolate Log one night. I should post it. SO easy and nice. Mum used to make it when I was a kid. Prefer my Mum's version though.

Thanks, you are a gem, but that one looks too complicated. I will save it though. The one this week had 3 layers of the cake thing but she only wrote 2 layers in the recipe which confused the 'cook at home' Mum.

What happened to Alana? Was that her name?

Method
Pate sable cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 160°c.
2. Add butter, sugar, flour, cinnamon and vanilla to a food processor and process to fine crumb. Add egg, mix till it comes together. Tip mixture onto bench and knead lightly. Roll out on a sheet of baking paper until 7 – 8 mm thick. Place ring mould over pastry and cut around outside edge, remove excess outer pastry.
3. Transfer pastry and ring mould on baking paper to an oven tray and bake until lightly golden.

Texture apple tatin insert
PART A
Dry caramelise the sugar, emulsify the caramel with the butter. Add the apples, cook until the apples are translucent and caramel in colour. Cool mixture.

PART B
1. Peel & dice the apples. Add butter, orange zest, & ginger to a pan and cook until aromatic. Add sugar & apples. Cook over high heat for 1 minute, add calvados & flambé. Cool mixture.
2. Mix the 2 apple mixtures together. Place in a silicon mould. Place in blast freezer until set.


Salted caramel layer
1. Heat cream. Place sugar, glucose, water in a saucepan, cook to caramel colour. Deglaze sugar with cream. Add gelatine. Cool to 50°c. Add butter and blitz.
2. Place in a silicon mould and place in blast freezer.


Biscuit decor jaconde
Cigarette decor paste
Mix all ingredients together.

Biscuit jaconde
1. Melt butter. Whip eggs, icing sugar, and almond meal together. Whip egg whites and sugar together to form stiff peaks. Fold egg whites into egg almond mixture alternating with butter & flour.
2. Preheat oven to 160°c.
3. Place cigarette paste on tray, swirl pattern with fingers. Place in freezer. Using a pastry scrape or palette knife spread cigarette paste with a thin layer about 3mm thick of jaconde. Bake until lightly golden. Cool.

5. Chocolate blackberry sabayon mousse
Blackberry ganache

1. Heat blackberry pulp in a saucepan, add sugar and inverted sugar, bring to the boil. Add extra sugar and pectin.
2. Pour mixture over chocolate in a bowl, stir until smooth. Cool to 40°c, add butter and blend with a stick blender.

Sabayon mousse
1. Place tea, sugar & eggs in a bowl over simmering water (bain marie) and whip to form a sabayon. Melt chocolate, mix in cream. Fold in blackberry ganache, gently fold in sabayon.

Chocolate spray
1. Temper chocolate see method below. Cool to 40°c. Add cocoa.
2. Place in spray gun.

Tempered chocolate
1. Melt the chocolate in a bowl. Add more chocolate stirring until melted, until the temperature of the chocolate reaches approximately 32°c (dark chocolate), approximately 30°c for milk or white chocolate. The chocolate should be tempered. To test, use a small square of silicon paper & dip in chocolate, place on bench (cool place), the chocolate should set at room temperature.
2. To temper the cocoa butter melt in pot on stove, then pour onto a clean work surface to cool rapidly (around 32°c), add colour as soon as you pour the cocoa butter on table and work with the palette knife. When cool, brush on clear plastic provided working left to right, and keep brushing until cool in same direction to obtain brush strokes. Cover in tempered white chocolate, and cut and shape to desired finish. Place on top of cake as desired.

I got home late and didn't see the whole program. It was the night they tried out recipes on cook at home mums. Kates had 3 layers and warm chocolate poured over the top. Looked like meringue layers but I didn't see the ingredients list. Annie might know?
