I decided I was gonna do a curried cauliflower, and I used the curry powder that was available. I'm gonna go there on top of there and I'm gonna eat my venison that way. With one more amateur cook out of the competition, the final five-- David, Whitney, Sharone, Sheetal, and Lee-- are about to cook for the three most intimidating food critics on the planet. If I had to make one comment, perhaps a drizzle of the most green, intoxicating, raw olive oil to give it a little bit more of that lush bitterness. Dino serves squid ink capellini with calamari, clams, and cherry tomatoes.

She chose to duel Jennifer. Archived from on August 7, 2017. Next time on MasterChef The first ever MasterChef final.
Today's challenge is an individual competition. Let's start off with the highest-scoring dish. You know, it's one of the senses that even professional Chefs in a restaurant forget to think about. I am used to cooking deer. The best six amateur cooks anywhere in America today.
I know Tanya Steel and Barbara Fairchild. I really didn't have a clear idea of what I'm going to make, but, uh, you know, vanilla it is, so here we go. Suddenly, two of you will face a pressure test on the worst two tasting dishes. Our scores are gonna be totally different. The next battle features Taylor and Cate, who auditioned last season but lost to their respective opponents and failed to win aprons, in salmon.
This is the last mystery box. Does this have raw eggs in it? Okay, I have a pan-seared venison and then I made a gravy from roasting the bones and, um, the meat, and then i have roasted brussels sprouts and fingerling potatoes. I have to choose right this second? I looked at my dish, and it looked like baby food-- one layer of mush and then a second layer of mush and then whipped cream. Congratulations goes to David Miller. And I look to my left, and the last person I want to see to my left is Whitney. When are you gonna start cooking the venison? Yachecia wins over Shawn in fried chicken, and Jason wins over Ty in a scallop battle.
Actually, the first time, I decided to, um, flambe bananas, I was nervous to go into the liquor store, 'cause that was the first time I've ever bought liqueur. And we expected you to excel. And, again, thank you for the opportunity. And you gotta do it justice. I wouldn't have taken that risk today, if this was my kitchen, my restaurant, and I had those tough cookies sat there. David Miller The look on his face-- that was priceless.
Do you stay off the bottom? I see the judges eating Sharone's souffle, and they just kept eating it and eating it. I'm making vanilla sponge cake layered with a vanilla custard. Um, they didn't say anything. Being from Boston, I think I've probably killed so I think lobster, I think butter. And when you do, you'll surprise yourself about the results. This dish scored out of 12.
Hearing Whitney's name called, it's not surprising. As a Chef, it's a great opportunity to actually go out and pick your fish out of the Sea. Ten, nine Eight, seven Six, five Four, three Two, one Damn it. Sharone looks like he's probably gonna be my biggest competitor, but I'm not worried. The critics, they are lethal. He assigns pappardelle to Jason, farfalle to Eboni, cannelloni to Gabriel, cavatelli to Cate, tortellini to Yachecia, and egg yolk ravioli to Jeff. Sheetal had the advantage today.
This is not the end. I can make my dream of opening up a restaurant come true. I thought that in the mystery box today, we would have something crazy and kooky. Front row, you're all safe. I would love to win a mystery-box challenge.
The results are not what I expected at all. Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one. So there are three sauces. You could either really win somebody with that or really throw 'em off. I won't lie, I think Sharone is a better cook than Whitney. Just remember-- super easy to overcook. Lee--how many times have I seen him cook with fennel? They're gonna see me to the end, and they're gonna give me that title.
