The two battled head-to-head last night after beating out the rest of the competition to land a spot in the finale. They each had to prepare an appetizer, entrée, and dessert for each of the three judges.
For appetizers, Elizabeth prepared grilled octopus while Courtney made pig’s ears. We’re not sure if either one sounds as appetizing to us as they did to the judges! For their appetizers Courtney prepared duck breast and Elizabeth prepared a spiced rack of lamb. Unfortunately, the rack of lamb that was served to Joe was rare!
Lastly, the girls prepared dessert. Elizabeth went for a grape fruit and olive oil cake with a plum trio while Courtney made a cherry meringue. Courtney decided to sample one of her meringues to see if it tasted okay but ended up realizing that she didn’t make extra, which was a huge problem as now her plate would not be balanced.
It definitely was a close race between the two chefs who did amazing all season. As the judges were about to announce a winner, Elizabeth’s husband suddenly passes out. He was a little too anxious to see who won! After making sure he was okay they announce the winner.
In the end, Courtney ended up winning season 5 Masterchef.
