‘I loved everything about it’: Tommy astounds the judges with his delectable pastry dish on MasterChef Australia

The judges of MasterChef Australia were absolutely floored by a delicious pastry dish crafted by contestant Tommy on Thursday night’s episode.

Tommy stepped up to the plate as the contestants were faced with a pastry challenge at the fancy Lune Croissanterie in Melbourne‘s Fitzroy.

Tommy, Depinder, Kishwar and Linda each had the opportunity to cook to gain guaranteed immunity from this week’s elimination.

The aspiring chefs had an open pantry and 90 minutes to choose and create a pastry dish that aligned with the Lune Croissanterie menu.

After picking from eight unique pastry shapes, the contestants then chose a base for their dish and were given proved, shaped dough ready to bake and craft.

The contestant who won the challenge would not only gain immunity, but would also have their creation added to the Lune Lab menu as well.

As the challenge began, the contestants scrambled for different shapes, with Kishwar selecting a croissant, Linda choosing a vol-au-vent, Depinder opting for a half pipe and Tommy going for a Danish.

The owner of Lune Croissanterie, Kate Reid, preemptively told the chefs that their pastries needed to have ‘balance’ and not be engulfed by the soft, buttery taste.  

Tommy ended up creating a pastry inspired by bánh mì – a staple of his Vietnamese background – which proved to be a roaring success.

‘This is the essence of what a Lune Lab dish is, said Kate. ‘It’s delicious, it’s perfectly well balanced. I loved everything about it.’

‘I couldn’t fault any of it,’ remarked judge Andy Allen, with Jock Zonfrillo adding that Tommy was a ‘contender today’.
