24 year old NSW physio student Kylie Millar was eliminated from MasterChef, just days before the season finale.
Millar’s Nougat Glace dessert at a challenge at Guillaume at Bennelong, at the Sydney Opera House, was enough to see her eliminated from the competition.
Head Chef Guillaume Brahimi discovered her dessert was way too sweet and the mixture had curdled
due to overwhipping of the cream with the eggs. The MasterChef judges were also disappointed and voted for her to leave.
But Brahimi offered her a position on his pastry staff.
“My highlight was Jamie Oliver,” she said of her time. “It was just incredible. He’s an amazing guy. I knew that’s what I wanted to do the rest of my life. Working with Adriano and Andre was just incredible as well, and meeting those pastry chefs I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face. The thing I will take away from MasterChef is the friendships along the way, and the comments from the judges tonight were really encouraging. I want to go out there and immerse myself in the world of pastry.
Five more remain in their quest to win, with contestants being eliminated each night: Andy, Audra, Ben, Julia and Mindy.
The series ends on Wednesday on TEN.
