MasterChef's Joe: Never Serve Raw Flour and No Egos on a Plate, Please!

Hello, MasterChef fans,

Last night was the first real opportunity we judges had to closely critique and mentor our remaining hopefuls through the cooking process, and found our gut instincts from the audition round were indeed correct -- we've got some serious talent on our hands this year! However, this is a competition, and the weeding out must continue! Last night we saw two major mistakes that proved to be the undoing for contestants Marc and Angel.

Salmon I thought was a pretty fair choice for our first mystery box challenge. Likewise, French cuisine is something that most people in America are at least somewhat familiar with. If the contestants were to fail here, it would be as a result of their own lack of culinary know-how, and not due to any curve balls being thrown their way. During the French cuisine elimination challenge, it was Angel's lack of versatility that did her in after she failed to deliver on a basic French fruit tart. Angel is a perfect example of someone who cooks what they know and can cook it well. If I could give her any advice it would be to venture outside of her comfort zone and experiment with new cuisines, as she's past the point of perfecting her hometown favorites.  The next MasterChef needs to be well versed enough to take it to the next level.
