Hi

I keep seeing the ad for MasterChef professionals and it was filmed in Melbourne. Anyone know where the filiming was done? Where was the MasterChef kitchen? Anyone know?

TIA

Yep at the show grounds in the Chicken pavillion! lol

I read an article in the paper the other day that the chicken judging has to find new digs while the filming is going on.

Not loving it at all. In fact Mr Marco Pierre White is putting me off. The whole repeating himself 3 or 4 times - annoying.

When he kept saying 2 "X', 2 "Y" three times over, well any normal Chef would think he was asking for 6 of each item not hassling them for 2 of them. And saying it over and over is not going to get it cooked any quicker.

It was obvious Matty was going home, and he deserved to, why say you know how to do something when you obviously don't?

I'm quite fond of MPW ever since I had a sex dream about him. It's okay so far but I agree I don't understand why Matty would take on something he's never done.

I don't mind Marco, ask me again at the end of the series!

I think Marco is doing what I've read recommended for doing with kids - say it over and over until you get some kind of acknowledgement you've been heard.  He stops when they say "Yes Marco!" or "Yes chef!" because he knows they heard him and should have added it into their workload.  It's something I've seen before in cooking shows but not usually as machine-gun-like as Marco does it.  And it definitely works with my kids, either repeating myself until they say they heard me or saying it then saying "Yes mum I heard you mum" so they realise I was after a response.

I don't mind Marco either, but I thought the first episode was ordinary, to say the least. Professional chefs being given someone elses creation and told to replicate it? C'mon, shouldn't they be creating their own?


What I found amusing was at the start when they were looking at the photos and commenting on the styles and they were all curious about one in particular, and some of them were saying how it stood out from the others.
It was shredded veges in a glass. It looked like rabbit food served Michelin star style.

I doubt it, they managed to ruin the other versions so I suspect it will be the same this time. Plus Marco Pierre White is so annoying where as Michel Roux is awesome!

Yeah, i thought that that a little weird too considering they are all meant to be professionals. Shouldn't they be used to performing under time pressures?

Also I thought it was a little lame of channel 10 to have the intro music go blurry when the shot of the deaf girl's (I think her name is Bonny) hearing aid was shown.

I liked it but I love reality cooking shows...

Has anyone read this?  It made me lol...

I also wondered about missing the duck, isn't MPW job to "approve" all dishes that go out?  I thought that was the head chefs role.  If it is, why did a dish with a missing part go out??

I thought it was a little tacky also...but reminded me of other reality shows where they focus on a few contestants to get public support for them.
This being said I did enjoy the show and I will watch it again tonight.

Michel Roux is awesome!


Michel Roux ate breakfast at my regular breakfast place a few years ago (back when I lived there) and claimed it as the best breakfast he'd ever eaten!

The best bit was that the awesome people who run it had no idea who he was - so no special treatment, and no nerves either!

roll2.gif I'd taped it last night but probably wasn't going to bother watching it. Think I will now, just to see this in action!

But I'm SURE they'll do an 'encore' screening at least once this week.

They did an encore screening this morning.

I didnt mind it, I thought definitely it would be Matty (hat guy) going home as he stuffed up way too much.

I dont usually watch these, but I didnt mind this one, but will see how I go.
