Indian mining giant Adani has just been given the green light to desecrate the Galilee Basin #adani #indianminers and I'm watching MasterChef. We're all watching fucking MasterChef. #ihatecooking but Trent, Sam and Jess are going head to head in a three hour pressure test elimination to replicate GOMA head chef Josue Lopez's "After the Eucalyptus Fire". A culinary masterpiece that subtly references the colours and flavours of the Australian bush and showcases emu as the hero ingredient #celebritychef #emuthreeways.
Approval has been granted to expand Abbot Point, the Adani owned coal port at the edge of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage area, threatening countless species and the health of the reef itself #coralbleaching #globalwarming. Lucky it’s emu not coral trout on the menu tonight. The contestants meekly offer up their delicate landscapes and the three judges hoe in #indianmynabirds #desecration.
Trent's emu steak is cooked to perfection, thank God. Sam has completely nailed the crispy rosella flower elements but Jess's beetroot leaf puree is bitter and that might just be enough to send her home. #intense
