In "MasterChef Australia 6," Episode 48, the contestants from the two losing teams (Ben, Tracy, Renae and Brent) had to recreate the popular dessert of The Town Mouse's Chef Dave Verhuel. It's called the Buttermilk poached pear, walnut, caramel, roast chocolate and pear sorbet. They have to make it without using a recipe and without being able to taste it! If they don't pass this particular Pressure Test, they will be eliminated and sent home.
Again, "MasterChef Australia" 6 judges Gary Mehigan, George Calombaris and Matt Preston were on hand to observe, give advice and judge who makes the best recreation of Chef Dave Verheul's signature dish.
