'Bush Pig Testicles And Ostrich Anus': What Celebs Would Cook As Their 'MasterChef' Audition Dish
'MasterChef Australia: Back To Win' is coming to 2020 with three brand-new judges and a cast of favourites from the last decade of the show.
Melissa Leong, Jock Zonfrillo and Andy Allen will be counting down with the giant kitchen clock and offering helpful advice to the second-time around contestants -- but we still don't know who they are!
So in the meantime, we decided to ask a few of our favourite celebs about the dishes they'd cook if they were hoping to dazzle the judges with their flavour combinations, knife skills and plating finesse in the MasterChef kitchen.
The talented bunch provided us with some questionable menu items, but at least they'd be excellent dinner party hosts?
"It'd be a mystery box of bush pig testicle and ostrich anus," Chris told 10 daily, explaining the dish would be "paleo" and had "all the essential food groups".
"Anus and testicles, high in protein and provided you're not picking feathers out from your teeth it's a good dish," he added.
Dr. Chris didn't mention if he'd be preparing a jus or some kind of side salad for that appetising dish, so we're going to have to trust him on this one.
For 'The Sunday Project' host Lisa Wilkinson, when it comes to impressing the judges, she believes "simple is best".
"I don't know if it would blow their socks off," Lisa told 10 daily, "but I do the most fantastic, simple pasta, rocket, tomato, parmesan salad that just everyone that I've ever served it to decides is the easiest, most delicious meal they've ever had."
Lady J-Mo didn't miss a beat in describing her "signature dish" that wows her dinner guests.
"What I like to do is get the chewy, crusty bread of maybe a sourdough variety and then I get... oh how do I describe it?" she mused.
"An electrical machine... and you put the bread into the machine and then you push it down and it's like a browning process, and then you take it out and then I like to put a salted butter on, to the thickness of almost a cheese, and that's a signature dish of mine."
"I call it toast."
"I'm good at BBQs, that's pretty much all I can do," Beau told us, before asking, "you can't do the same dish all the time though can you?"
No, Beau, sadly not!
"But the thing about BBQ is, you can cook any meat on BBQ so I'd just change the meat up!" he explained.
Between endless meat portions, some ostrich anus and Julia's sourdough toast stacked with butter -- it sounds like a carb-loaded, protein-rich 'MasterChef' feast for, er, all the senses.
