Farmers Market cooks off

14 Dec 2014

Farmers Market cooks off Image

Curious crowds gathered at the Southbank Farmers Market on Saturday December 6, to witness a cook-off between two former MasterChef contestants.

2013 MasterChef winner Emma Dean and 2014 participant Sam Gant squared off against each other in a fight for gourmet glory.

Each of the chefs were provided with $50 and 30 minutes to shop the market and a further 30 minutes to create a dish based around seasonal produce purchased at the market.

The contest was refereed and judged by Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre’s executive chef Tony Panetta, who did a good job in keeping the fierce showdown under control.

The former champion Emma Dean whipped up a chocolate moose using fresh avocados and berries, while Sam utilised some fresh Portarlington muscles in her dish as crowds flocked to get a taste.

In fitting fashion the contest ended in a stalemate, with Mr Panetta declaring Victorian local produce to be the winner.
