Last week on MasterChef Junior 2015 we got to meet a group of young chefs with some great talent, but unfortunately some of them had to go home. Now that we have met the top 14 on MasterChef Junior season 3, they will have to work harder than ever to stay in the competition. If you missed any of last week’s episode you can check out my recap right here to catch up!This week the young chefs had to make whipped meringue pies and judging by the picture above, they were also able to have some fun with them after! After that the young chefs on MasterChef 2015 had to create unique sausage dishes in a team challenge, this challenge proves to be interesting, keep reading to find out why!
Tonight’s episode starts off with Gordon Ramsay, Graham Elliot and Joe Bastianich picking three kids to make meringue for pies. The first young chef that gets all 12 pies at their station covered with meringue wins and gets to hit one of the judges in the face with a pie and they get a huge advantage in the next challenge.
Ryan Kate, gets to hit Joe, Andrew gets to hit Gordon and Jimmy gets to hit Graham with a pie. When the clock starts ticking the young chefs start racing for their stations. Jimmy wins the challenge and gets to throw a pie in Graham’s face and he also gets the advantage in the next challenge.
After Graham gets hit with a pie, Graham asks the 11 kids that didn’t participate in the challenge how many pies are left on Jimmy’s station and they all realized there is one for each of them on his station! They each grab one off the station and go after the judge of their choice!
In the next challenge the young chefs will all have to make sausage dishes in teams of two and that’s where Jimmy comes into play. His advantage is to choose the teams! He pairs himself with Kyler, Riley and Ayla, Andrew and Cory, Jack and Nathan, Jenna and Mia, Ryan Kate and Kayla and Alexis and Micah! Great team choices!
I think that pairing Andrew and Cory together was part of Jimmy’s plan to get Andrew sent home. Cory is really hyper and he is throwing Andrew off and making it really hard for Andrew to concentrate. The young chefs are really using some great meat combinations including meats like deer and ostrich in their sausages.
Most of the teams seem to start off strong, but some start to fall apart during the end of the time. One team forgets to turn their burner on and with just 10 minutes left their sausage is raw. For one team, this will be the end of their time on MasterChef Junior, which team will that be is the question.
Mia and Jenna are up first and they have a very nice looking dish and Joe calls their sausage amazing, it was a pork and pork chorizo blend. The next team up is Micha and Alexis, their pork sausage and bean stew, it needed more fat and seasoning and the beans were a little under cooked.
The next team up is Jimmy and Kyler and they have pork and kangaroo sausage and a corn salad, Joe seemed to like it, but Gordon liked the plating, not the sausage. Ayla and Riley are up next and they did a pork and sage sausage with mashed potatoes, Gordon loved the flavors of their dish.
Jack and Nathan are up next and they did veal and wild boar sausage with polenta and spinach and Elliot loved the flavors but said that the sausage needed more fat and a little less cooking. Ryan Kate and Kayla are up next and Joe loved the dish that they presented of polenta and sausage, looked amazing.
Andrew and Cory are up next and they have a chorizo pork sausage with spinach and spetzel, Gordon makes sure to tell them that they need to manage their time better. Gordon also added that the sausage was dry and the spinach was bland, but the spetzel was good.
Who will be going home after this challenge? The best dish was from Jenna and Mia! The bottom dishes were from Andrew and Cory, Micah and Alexis. One of these teams will be going home, who will it be? The team going home on MasterChef Junior 2015 will be Micah and Alexis!
