‘MasterChef’ Recap: Who Stole Jaimee’s Ramekin?
MasterChef is down to the top 16 and this episode actually gets pretty intense. For the first time in MasterChef history, one of the cooks presents a dish that they didn’t actually make, which is a huge deal.
Tin Can Mystery Box Challenge
The cooks come out and the judges promise that, though they’ve been through a lot already, they’re just getting started. They start off with a new Mystery Box challenge and lift their boxes up to find tin cans, which I think is a great idea. Gordon Ramsay says that every house has cans, but most of those cans have labels. The cooks’ cans don’t have labels. They can open and use as many as they like as well as their staple pantry of ingredients.
The cooks start opening their 52 cans to try to find out what’s inside and get started. It’s a real array of stuff. A lot of the cooks only open a few cans and get started right away, but poor Jaimee is just stumped. She ultimately decides to make a soup, but she isn’t too optimistic about it.
