Tonight was the final episode of MasterChef USA 2012. Christine fought against Josh to determine the winner. Josh ended up losing, making Christine the MasterChef. Josh certainly showed a lot of passion but just didn’t have what it took tonight.
Josh’s menu was a lobster grits appetizer, rack of lamb entree, and bacon pecan pie dessert. Josh made a technical error by blending his lobster shells with the broth. That brought out the iodine flavour of the shells and not the beautiful seafood flavour. It turned out to be a good idea because the end result was praised by the judges. They didn’t like his raw lobster tail however.
His rack of lamb was great. The judges thought that the lamb was perfectly cooked, but the vegetables didn’t fit in the dish. Joe Bastianich did love the mixture though, and thought the use of different seasons was brilliant.
His bacon pecan pie was great. The only problems with the dish was that the crust was a bit oily. They couldn’t pick out the bacon, but they loved the ice cream.
In the end it was Christine who won and Josh was eliminated.
Do you think Josh should have won?
