The three finalists will go head to head on July 13 when the winner of season 13 will be determined in a final cook off
As the three month long cooking competition inches towards the finish line, one last elimination round on July11 confirmed the three contestants moving forward to MasterChef season 13 grand finale. Kishwar Chowdhury of Bangladeshi descent is among these deserving three. She will compete against Pete Campbell and Justin Narayan on July 12-13 in a two part grand finale.
Kishwar made a kingfish entree and finished off with an "after dinner mint," ice cream served on a betel leaf. Judge Melissa Leong, chewing on the leaf wrapped ice cream, rightfully called it "a love letter to Bangladesh."
From the top 4 that was announced less than a week ago, Elise Pulbrook was eliminated on this episode, which was the 59th of the season.
A 38-year old Bangladeshi from Melbourne, Kishwar brought classic local dishes -- including "Kala bhuna,” "Fuchka-Chotpoti," "Macher-Jhol" and other delicacies, all the way to MasterChef kitchen on previous episodes. The mother of two wants to write a Bangladeshi cookbook to keep the legacy of her family alive.
"A lot of the food that we cook has been passed down from my ancestors," the talented cook said in an interview to Dhaka Tribune. "It's the way we've kept our heritage alive. I love the unspoken secrecy we have in our culture to protect our special recipes."
Well, Kishwar's recipes are not all under wraps anymore. We can look up 10play.com.au to find some of them.
