A former Glenalmond College student is through to the final five of MasterChef a she tries to serve up a spot in the final of the hit television cooking show.
Claire Fyfe, 34, who is originally from Stanley, advanced through the first semi-final hurdle on Wednesday evening as seven contestants became five.
On top of impressing regulars Gregg Wallace and John Torode, Claire also had to show of her skills to celebrity guest judge, Scottish chef Tom Kitchen, who began his career at Gleneagles.
The interior designer, who now lives in London, was tasked with creating a game burger made of five different meats including pheasant, grouse, wild duck, venison and partridge, surrounded celeriac soup and topped with a quail’s egg.
Tom said the dish “looked nice” and that egg was cooked to perfection but the burger needed “a little more seasoning”.
Gregg Wallace though said he loved the burger, describing it as “cracking and livery rich”.
For the second dish Claire had to create a dish that was inspired by someone that inspired her.
The former Glenalmond College student impressed the judges with a beef olive recipe that had been passed down from her granny to her mother.
Claire will now attempt to take the next step towards the MasterChef crown on BBC One tonight at 7.30pm.
