In this episode of MasterChef SA, contestants were introduced to the Invention Test – pairing their dish with the correct Nederburg wine. But there was a catch - they had to cook for 10 people! Not just any old man off the street... real SA celebs!
Celebs on MasterChef SA
Radio and TV personality, Unathi Msengana, actor, Desmond Dube, former Springbok rugby player and sport commentator, Breyton Paulse, The Wild star, Milan Murray, Marokko Swallows player and model, Ryan Botha, singer, Loyiso and Drum food editor and TV cooking host, Sibahle Mtungana. Sheesh, talk about pressure!
The celeb guests had to vote for the winner in the Invention Test. The winner would get a chance to go head to head with a celeb chef.
The prize at stake: an Immunity Pin that will grant the holder safety from elimination in the next few weeks - very handy to have at this stage of the challenge! The Bottom Three Dishes, however, would go into a Pressure Test.
After 90 minutes, they had to stop cooking and dress in their chefs’ best to serve the celebs. Winner of the Invention Test was Khaya! Reuben Riffel revealed himself as the guest chef to go head to head with Khaya. How exciting?! Lucky girl.
