After attempting to serve strawberries three ways alongside a basil ice cream in last night elimination, Sam’s dish was a murky mess, with granita which had not held. With technique letting him down, it was Sam who was sent packing and he became the 15th contestant eliminated from the MasterChef kitchen.
With time wasted fixing his ice cream, Sam did not have time to whip up his planned lemon granita so he headed back to the pantry to look for another option, settling on watermelon. With the ice cream still too icy in texture, he decided to make it into a cream based granita. He poured it into a baking tray put it in the blast chiller.
Since leaving, Sam is now doing work experience at Three Blue Ducks alongside MasterChef Australia season four winner Andy Allen. He looks forward to opening a café on the Bellarine Peninsula.
Masterchef continues Sunday @ 7.30p on and online on www.tenplay.com.au
