Round of 13
July 5

Last time, the cooks headed to the beach to feed a biker rally. And the red team never "sausage" a disaster, leading to an angry Christine and a rather disaffected Max facing off against each other in a Pressure Test to cook beef medallions. Max was given the heave ho, but did Esther awaken a new threat to the MasterKitchen?

Time for Round 3...


In the Mystery Box today... A LIVE INGREDIENT! Well, it was living before. CAREFULLY lift your boxes... to find nothing but vegetables. The challenge today: create a vegetarian dish. No sides, no salads, a savory dish using only the vegetables found in the Mystery Box: purple fingerling potatoes, green tomatoes, candy-striped beets, Japanese eggplant, smoked paprika, Moroccan spice, and curry powder.

Already, the advantage to Suzy.

One hour... one dish. Selection of the top three will be based on presentation.

The WORST dish of the lot... Christian Collins' stuffed tomatoes. No cohesion, no think-through, and overall... it was strange. And Christian has no qualms about arguing with the judges about it. Everyone thinks that Christian has zero filter.

Back to business. The top three...

- Jennifer Behm: Vegetable Terrine with Eggplant Wrap & Tomato Sauce
- Adrien Nieto: Green Gazpacho with Spanish Rice & Fried Egg (this is his second final table)
- Alejandra Schraeder: Vegetable Korma with Rice & Asian Pear (Again, second final table)

The last Mystery Box was won by Adrien. Will he repeat as winner this round? The winner of this Mystery Box... JENNFER! Her advantage... Jennifer will control the main ingredient/style of food in...

ELIMINATION TEST #3: The Past Becomes the Present

The theme for this Elimination Test is not a what, but a who... Jennifer gets to meet America's FIRST MasterChef... WHITNEY MILLER! (C-NOTE: I'M NOT WORTHY! I'M NOT WORTHY!) She will present and guest judge the challenge. The challenge: recreate a dish from Whitney's cookbook: "Modern Hospitality: Simple Recipes with Southern Charm" (now available wherever fine books are sold... money). BUT she'll have to do with without a recipe. The good news: Jennifer gets to choose which of the three dishes will be the centerpiece of the challenge.

- Cranberry Chipotle Barbecue Chicken with Potato Salad & Grilled Asparagus.
- Shrimp & Grits with Andouille Sausage and a Roasted Red Pepper Sauce & Herb Salal
- Crispy Catfish with Purple Slaw & Sweet Potato Fries

Gordon Ramsay loves using adjectives.


One hour to recreate the dish down to the last grain of salt WITHOUT A RECIPE.

The second advantage: Jennifer will be given EVERY ingredient down to the last fluidounce of oil.

The ingredients in the slaw are... purple cabbage, carrots, apple, jalapeno, pecans, and brussels sprouts. That's the only freebie we're going to give you. You're going to have to search the interwebs for the complete recipe.

Alejandra misses a couple of ingredients in the slaw. Will that cost her? Judging on the judgment handed her, perhaps yes.

Jennifer is up to taste first. She had all of the ingredients and literally the game in her hands. Jennifer nailed it. But what about the other 13?

- Alejandra Schraeder: Used garlic in the tartar sauce. RAW garlic.
- Derrick Prince: coating did nothing for the fish, slaw is horrible.
- Adrien Nieto: the plating is so out of touch that Joe had to replate it properly.
- Jennie Kelley: SALTY!

The objective WAS TO REPRODUCE EXACTLY the dish! Not to reinterpret it. Just ask...

- Ben Starr: ... to which Joe says... "WHY DON'T YOU COOK LIKE THIS ALL THE TIME!"

The two dishes that stood out... belong to CHRISTIAN and BEN. They'll be captains on the next challenge. Battle of the Daft Hats next time...

Your bottom three... Adrien, Jennie, and Alejandra. At LEAST one of them is going home.

... first of which is JENNIE.

As for the other two... They are both SAFE. But by so much.

Twelve remaining to take on the Team Challenge NEXT TIME.
