Used softcover cookbook in very good condition - 'bumped' cover corners and minor sun fading to front cover. Internally the book is excellent. 262 pages, published 2009. Superb colour photos throughout and excellent 'how-to' sections as well as plenty of both basic and signature recipes.
Cook like the world’s watching!
More than four million Australian television viewers tuned in on July 19th 2009 to watch Julie Goodwin, a Central Coast mum, win the coveted title of Australia’s first MasterChef. But for six nights a week, over three months, the Top Twenty MasterChef contestants had been battling to outcook each other under extreme kitchen conditions, often with unfamiliar ingredients, and in record time. You watched them sweating, stirring, whisking, frying, crying, hugging and laughing their way through the competition. You saw them either leapfrogging through to the final week, or leaving the competition, as their numbers were whittled down from twenty to two, Julie and Poh Ling Yeow.
In this much-anticipated book, the Top Twenty contestants share recipes they created on the show. There are mystery box and invention test winners galore - including Chris’s controversial roast pig head and his creamy ‘beeramisu’ - alongside standout audition dishes such as Lucas’s Singapore chilli mud crab. They share behind-the-scenes stories, with culinary tips and tricks from Mastechef judges Gary Mehigan, George Calombaris and Matt Preston and the contestants. They also explain what they did right and what they did wrong - and discuss what they would have done differently, if they’d had a second chance. You’ll also find recipes here for Adriano Zumbo’s demonically difficult pressure-test desserts - the croquembouche, the pannacotta, and the now-infamous chocolate mousse cake.
This cookbook contains sections on pantry basics, kitchen equipment, knife skills, and plating up like a professional, as well as classic recipes every wannabe chef should have in their repertoire.
Includes recipes from top Australian and international chefs:
Matt Moran and Andrew Honeysett
