The Classic Re-invention test
Welcome to the week of The Master’s Apprentices. Each episode this week features one of Marco Pierre White’s former chefs and kicking it off tonight is acclaimed Melbourne Chef, Shannon Bennett. Tonight’s knife block features dishes that have inspired Shannon over his career and the lucky knife reveals Shannon’s grandmother’s rabbit stew as the order of the day. As we all know, it’s about reinvention, and for one contestant their culinary journey comes to an end.
Monday 4 March, 7.30pm
The second of Marco’s apprentices, Curtis Stone, worked for Marco for six-and-a-half years. He joins him in the kitchen to teach the contestants one of the dishes that he cooked in Marco’s restaurant, Quo Vadis. The contestants must pay attention as Curtis shows them how the dish is made. Then, they are on their own, and they must recreate the dish without a recipe
Tuesday 5 March, 7.30pm
Restaurant Service Challenge
The last of Marco’s apprentices, Donovan Cooke, is in the kitchen tonight. One of Marco’s toughest protégés, each restaurant Donovan has opened has been awarded with three stars. His latest venture, Atlantic, is well on its way to the same accolade. For this restaurant service challenge, the professionals have been given six of Donovan’s dishes from Atlantic, two entrees, two mains and two desserts. With Donovan running the pass, all contestants should be on alert, and it’s time for one to say goodbye.
7.30pm Sunday, Monday and Tuesday on TEN.
