Okay, let’s try this blogging consistently thing again. Ever since my holiday, my blogging schedule has gone out of whack and I’ve been falling in and out of the habit. I will try harder, I promise.
Now, let’s talk about Masterchef. Even if you don’t watch it, you probably know what Masterchef is. If you still don’t know what it is, that’s alright. It’s just a reality tv cookshow that happens to broadcast during dinner time so I’ve been following it faithfully.
The Masterchef Finale was really just an excuse to have a dinner party. To make things slightly themed, we agreed that only masterchef dishes would be on the table for the night. So the night’s menu looked like this:
The guest list was filled with amazing guests. We had the beautiful Violet Le Beaux filling our house with pink and amazing macarons, along with Jimmy America who played photographer for the night and K who I’m currently missing so much, so hurry back to Melbourne, gal!
No recipes with this post, though if you went to look on the MC website, you’ll find them all there. I will be sharing the recipes later this week, but for now you get photos!
Prawn Scotch Eggs: I didn’t make the sambal that went with this, but that’s because the guests don’t eat spicy food. (Blasphemy!) Making this wasn’t quite as easy as it looked on TV, hats off to Adam!
Beef Stroganoff: Unfortunately we don’t seem to have a photo of the pasta. Next time! The stroganoff was yummy! It was my first time trying any sort of stroganoff and I was told by my housemate that this wasn’t the traditional stroganoff as this had the addition of tomato paste in it. I liked it!
We had leftover Beef Bourguignon from the previous day’s cookoff so I plated those up too. It was even nicer the next day! But not officially on the menu as Masterchef never did do beef bourguignon.
Why hello there, macaron towers! Violet and Jimmy did an amazing job with the Macarons! We had Green Tea with Pistachio ganache, raspberry with white chocolate ganache and chocolate with beuno flavoured ganache. I can’t pick a favourite! They were all so amazing.
And if the sugar high from the Macarons weren’t quite enough, have a piece of decadence: Opera Cake. I wish I had more of that cake. I really do.
I have fond memories of the night, but don’t believe me. Go check out what Violet had to say about the night. Be warned tho! There’s a really unglamorous photo of me stuffing my face with a massive wine glass. Teehee.
Recipes to follow! And are any of you planning to apply for Masterchef Season 3?
