Videos: Andrea Burgener Judges a MasterChef SA Elimination Challenge

Lampedusa PieAndrea Burgener, author of Lampedusa Pie, was on MasterChef SA as the guest judge for an elimination challenge, which was all about creating the fusion food that Burgener is known for.

MasterChef SA judge Pete Goffe-Wood described Burgener as the Queen of Creative Cuisine and she commented that at her restaurant, The Leopard, a lot of their “dishes have evolved through creating one thing in the kitchen, combining it with another … seeing what works”.

Her dishes are colourful and eccentric, much like her personality. Andrea Burgener graced the latest Pressure Test (Episode 16, 31 July), and challenged the Contestants to think out of the box, instead of providing them with a recipe.

Pete described her as the Queen of Creative Cuisine. “Her food has been branded ‘global’ and ‘eclectic’,” he told the Contestants. “She is a self-taught cook and a very well known food writer and her current restaurant, The Leopard is one of Johannesburg’s most beloved eateries.”

After another Team Challenge, the Red Team faced an Elimination Round in the MasterChef Kitchen. “I’m feeling very nervous because if I mess up today I could go home. So there’s a lot of pressure,” 19-year-old Pretoria student Khumo said. This was also Joani’s first time in an Elimination Challenge.

Pete introduced the day’s guest chef. “Her food has been branded ‘global’ and ‘eclectic’,” he told them. “She is a self-taught cook and a very well known food writer and her current restaurant, The Leopard, is one of Johannesburg’s most beloved eateries,” said Pete. “Please welcome the Queen of Creative Cuisine, Andrea Burgener!”
