I love Masterchef, in all of its versions, even if I’m not entirely sure most of the time about who the celebrities are. But what I love is the trends in ingredients, and always wonder what it’ll be next.
Of course the chocolate fondant is legendary, and it’s not just John and Gregg who moan (and not in a good way) when one is presented. Surely there are other desserts out there?
For a long time it seemed to be all about the pea puree, generally with scallops. Or black pudding. Or both. And that’s okay with me, I’d order a dish of that combination even today. But then I’m a northern girl at heart, and rather fond of black pudding.
Who knows this time? Kimchi with every dish? Salted caramel? Maybe the celebrities will be a little behind the curve compared to the professionals, so maybe not something so up to date, but maybe we’ll be surprised. What’s your bet on?
