I had no expectations whatever from the Israeli MasterChef, actually I stopped watching this farce after third season, tired of watching bad food generously watered with tears and listening phony compliments of judges. Yet by some chance I caught a glimpse of MasterChef Finale yesterday. In pasta test of MasterChef Finale one would expect participants to make pasta from scratch. No way, this simple task would have undoubtly demonstrated finalists’ abilities to screw up any dish, no matter how simple it is. So they just boiled ready made pasta and tossed in some garnish, serving dishes that at their best looked like an average school meal. Even more appalling were comments of judges, describing this pathetic food with exaggerated noises of fake orgasm.
The Israeli Masterchef Final left me boiling. All the dishes presented were primitive, dull and banal, deserving at their best some workplace eatery. The judges hypocritically made enthusiastic noises about the food they would have rejected at auditions as not meeting presumably high requirements of Masterchef. The winning dish is a steak with grilled vegetables – pathetic. The losing dish is sorry-looking pasta drawn in Gerber-like sauce, even more pathetic. This show turned to parody with judges discussing dishes that look like canned food in grandiloquent terms of gourmet cuisine. What a bunch of lies!
