MasterChef Australia 2018: Top three revealed as one cook goes home

A finals week elimination challenge with a spectacular view.

MasterChef Australia’s Sunday night elimination challenge involved Ben, Sashi and Jess who were cooking to ensure themselves a spot in the top three.

The challenge saw the three home cooks cook a dish of their choice for judges Gary, George and Matt, plus four of Australia best chefs.

With a staggered start time of 30 minutes and 90 minutes to plate up seven meals each, Ben was first to start by playing to his strengths with his take on a seafood platter.

Cooking against the stunning backdrop of Sydney harbour, Sashi decided to showcase his cultural background with a Singapore chicken rice.

Jess chose to do a dessert, making a black sesame ice cream with a yuzu cream. Unfortunately for the 19-year-old, her cook didn’t go to plan, and she was sent home.

“Your food has been amazing, you’ve been amazing and you’re going to be a superstar, we guarantee you,” George said.

Jess’ elimination now leaves Khanh, Ben and Sashi ready to battle it out for a place in the grand finale on Tuesday night.
