MasterChef viewers SLAM 'pretentious' snowball dessert
‘What the hell is happening?’ Furious MasterChef viewers slam ‘pretentious’ contestant for asking judges to wear HEADPHONES and listen to ‘winter sounds’ while eating snowball dessert
MasterChef viewers were left rolling their eyes over a ‘pretentious’ meal that was served up on Thursday’s episode.
The group were tasked with whipping up some deserts to impress the judges with as finals week draws near.
Terri, 30, from County Down, Northern Ireland cooked a ‘snowball’ dessert of rice pudding in a white chocolate coating.
In order to create a ‘colder’ experience for the judges, they were all served a pair of headphones playing wintery sounds while they ate.
It appeared to have an effect on the diners as one remarked: ‘It makes you feel so cold you’re craving something warm to heat you up.’

John Torode also had high praise for Terri after tasting the dish, saying: ‘Wow, that is so good. An extraordinary flavour of rice pudding inside but a shell of white chocolate.’
But the quirky set up didn’t go down too well with viewers who were both confused and unimpressed with the ‘tedious’ set up.
Taking to Twitter, one fan wrote: ‘Jeez this food and the concept of all of this is so ridiculously pretentious. No thank you.’
Another said: ‘This #MasterChef meal looks INCREDIBLY tedious!’ while another asked: ‘What the hell is happening?’
A fourth viewer joked: ‘I think I want a pair of #MasterChef headphones.’
Describing her cooking style, Terri said: ‘My cooking style is classic Irish / British / French food with a modern twist using flavours from around the world, in particular Japan.
‘My food is inspired by places, people, ingredients, and experiences. I love trying a new dish in a restaurant and recreating my own version of it.’
Asked about her future ambitions, she added: ‘The dream….to be a food critic. Who doesn’t want to eat food for a living? Joking aside, I would love a career in the food industry.

‘I really enjoy writing recipes, trying weird and wonderful flavour combinations and would love to work in a professional kitchen environment.
‘Who knows what the future holds for me, but one way or another I want it to be food related.’
At the end of the episode, judge Greg Wallace said: ‘Our five are never going to be the same cooks ever again.
‘There’s one more cook off between them and a place in finals week.’
