Wild cost to order MasterChef dessert

Gilmore told the top three the dessert took three months to develop, apologising in advance for the task they were about to undertake in recreating it.RELATED: MasterChef’s finale, live as it happenedSo how can fans get their hands on the decadent dish? Well, unfortunately, Sydney’s extended lockdown has stymied the launch of the brand new dessert, which will be served at the iconic Bennelong restaurant at the Sydney Opera House.Bennelong’s menu page currently directs punters to a mailing list, where they can sign up to find out when the Golden Crackle will become available. Yes, this dessert comes with its own wait list, that’s how exclusive it is. RELATED: How MasterChef winner will spend the $250k We can reveal that, when Bennelong reopens, the labour-intensive golden crackle will be on sale for the bargain price of $15 – but there’s a catch.That $15 is actually paid as an additional supplement if you choose the golden crackle for dessert as part of Bennelong’s $170 three-course a la carte menu. So unless you want to try and make it yourself (good luck), you won’t be able to taste the dish for less than $185 – but you will get to try it as part of a very lush three course meal amid Sydney’s best views, when Bennelong’s up and running again.So what exactly are you getting for your money? Gilmore revealed last night that the Golden Crackle is filled with rice crispies, which have to be “hand-coated individually in four different chocolates”.Underneath that are an additional six layers of chocolate cake, mousse, whipped caramel cream, prune jam, salted caramel and dark chocolate ganache inside it. All need to be made in separate recipes and then layered together.RELATED: Celeb MasterChef cast finally revealedAs for the golden dome, it’s made from a potato starch sheet and gold leaf.MasterChef’s top three contestants described the dessert as “terrifying”, but all had a pretty good stab at recreating it, with winner Justin earning a perfect score of tens across the board for his efforts.And we can report that there’s some good news for runner-up Pete: He may have missed out on the MasterChef title, but Ten tells us he’s just scored a job with Peter Gilmore at his other iconic Sydney restaurant, Quay. He’ll be heading into the kitchen as soon as Sydney’s lockdown is over.
