MasterChef Australia’s Julie Goodwin suffers huge blow in her comeback as she’s placed in the bottom four and faces elimination after disaster cook

Julie Goodwin hit a snag in her comeback journey during Monday’s episode of MasterChef Australia. 

The cook faced a mystery box challenge but her tomato pasta recipe did not go to plan. 

The 51-year-old spent a long time perfecting her sauce and making her own pasta, as well as pangrattato breadcrumbs, but the dish turned out less than ideal.

‘I think your hard work in the tomatoes paid off. You got a lot of lot of good depth of flavour in the sauce,’ judge Andy Allen said. 

‘My problem is the pasta work. I think you’ve rolled it a little bit too thin for that dish. And it’s overcooked. That’s a worry for me for today – it might see you down the bottom’ he added. 

Judge Melissa Leong chimed in:  ‘I agree on the pasta. It’s so fine that it almost just evaporates, which I don’t know that was intentional.

‘Because you really want something that has a little bit more bite and toothsome-ness to it to take up and balance the tomato-ey richness. 

‘Love the tomato sauce. And I also love the pangrattato, with the lemon zest in it, just lifts everything and freshens everything up.’

At the end of the episode, Julie found herself in the bottom four, which means she faces a pressure test on Tuesday’s episode.
