billeNew Delhi, Tuesday, December 8 – In a challenging task in the seventh edition of MasterChef Australia, it was the positive approach of Billie McKay and Georgia Barnes that made them get a direct entry into the finals week of the cookery show. The two veteran home cooks beat Sara Oteri & Jessica Arnott to reach at a spot where each contestant wanted to be thanks to display of some great cooking.

Billie McKay was selected as a partner by Georgia Barnes as the young cook doesn’t lose her cool while cooking.  The 27-year-old Health Product Representative by profession Barnes got this advantage for being a step ahead against Oteri and Arnott in the earlier cook. Despite the fact that she lost against Shannon Bennett, who used to mentor contestants of MasterChef during immunity challenges task, Georgia was an elated lady to know that she is yet eligible to make an important decision during her cook in the latter stages.

Her decision paid off perfectly as McKay, her partner in team task, continued to push and worked till last by keeping the calm regardless of knowing they are out of white chocolate mousse. The smart dessert won a number of hearts but figs were hard to eat due to no cooking process. Pressure was huge on the girls in the kitchen as Marco Pierre White was yelling out orders to make sure each dinner get to eat what he/she ordered. Matt Preston and Gary Mehigan and George Calombaris were left with no option but to praise the dishes prepared by blue team, which comprised McKay and Barnes. They even praised burnt butter sponge and rhubarb by Red team and even asked for its recipe. Cauliflower puree by 24-year-old Billie took the judges by surprise.

Some good choices of vegetables in the entrée by Sara and Jessica complemented each other well. However, use of chocolate and blackberry jus in the main course disappointed them to a certain extent and this made them miss the opportunity for directly qualifying for the finals. Now, the members of red team will fight for their place in the show with Reynold Poernomo and Matthew Hopcraft. A mistake at this stage will send one of the candidates back to home.
