Michael Lee became the eighth contestant from the Top 12 to leave MasterChef New Zealand on Sunday 24 April (8.30pm – 9.30pm) on TV ONE – leaving the Final Four contestants in the competition.

In tonight’s show the Top 5 faced some of New Zealand’s best chefs in a gourmet room service challenge at The Langham Hotel where they cooked under the guidance of formidable executive chef, Volker Marecek and MasterChef judge Simon Gault.

The guests chef’s were, Tony Astle, chef-owner of Antoine’s restaurant, Rex Morgan, co-owner of Wellington’s Boulcott Street Bistro, Des Harris, from Clooney restaurant, Judith Tabron of the Soul Bar and Bistro and Sid Sahrawat, from SidArt.

After receiving the order by phone, each contestant had 20 minutes to cook their allocated dish and take them by trolley to their guest’s room where they were judged by their guest chef and Josh Emett and Ray McVinnie.

The contestants were all intimidated by Maracek who was straight to the point, “Something I don’t like, I will just throw it in the bin.”

Lee got on the wrong side of Maracek almost immediately, first he repeatedly forgot to wear his gloves, and then he was reprimanded for filleting his salmon, and then struggled with his salmon mousse puree.

Lee said, “it’s really, really hard trying to get salmon through a drum sieve after a few minutes your arm just gets really sore” but Maracek told him to toughen up.

Astle pulled no punches when judging his dish, “bland, but I also think the tortellini is very tough but even the filling has no flavour.”

TraceyLee Hooton also struggled with the challenge after crashing her food trolley minutes before delivery. Despite her devastation she managed to re-plate and narrowly avoided elimination from the bottom 2 with Lee.

Meanwhile, Stuart Todd and Jax Hamilton had another stunning result this week and were the Top 2 of the day.

Before sending Lee home, Emett said, “You did make the Top 5 in MasterChef and you should be extremely proud. Your audition dish won you the golden apron and got you straight through to the Top 12 and that’s how we will remember you.”

Lee concluded, “It really sucks leaving so close to the end, but I’ve learnt more in the few months of MasterChef than I would have learnt in a whole year, because I am so young I’ve got so much in front of me from now its just pursuing my love of food.”

MasterChef New Zealand continues Sundays at 8.30pm on TV ONE. At stake for the remaining contestants is the MasterChef New Zealand title and more than $100,000 worth of prizes.

The remaining contestants are: Nadia Lim (Auckland), Traceylee Hooton (Taupo), Jax Hamilton (Christchurch), and Stuart Todd (Dunedin).

The story of carver, artist, sculptor, filmmaker and photographer James McDonald will air on Maori Television this Saturday.

THE SCOTSMAN AND THE MAORI is this Saturday’s documentary screening at 8.30pm.  In the documentary, mother and daughter – distinguished historian and writer Dame Anne Salmond and anthropologist Dr Amiria Salmond – explore the story of their ancestor who lived most of his life working with Maori.

McDonald was the son of a Scottish ploughman born in Otago in 1865 . In the early 1900’s he worked as a photographer and then utilised one of the first of the film cameras to arrive in NZ. Maori leaders of the day invited including Sir Peter Buck and Sir Apirana Ngata soon began to know him as “Mac” and they invited him to travel deep into the Maori world and the result is thousands of photographs as well as moving images.

“Apirana and Te Rangihiroa must have known what Mac’s images would mean for the descendents as he captured a way of Maori life that was rapidly disappearing. And for my daughter and I we can see that our lives have followed the work that our Great Grandfather started,” says Anne Salmond.

Now, 100 years later, the work of James McDonald is coming out of the archives and being returned back to the places where Mac and his team travelled. Along the way Anne and Amiria Salmond explore how some things have changed for Maori while other traditions such as the learning of ancient waiata have remained the same.

Director Libby Hakaraia says Anne Salmond is thrilled with THE SCOTSMAND AND THE MAORI documentary which she believes has a lot to say to the world about who we are as New Zealanders.

“It was an honour to work with one of our most distinguished historians and writers on an intimate journey with her and her family and to see that her great-grandfather’s films and photographs still hold relevant and important information for all New Zealanders.”

The new app, packed with great features around SKY’s
electronic programme guide is a one stop shop for listings for more than
111 channels including all SKY’s channels plus all the free-to-air
listings.

The portable access provided to this extensive listing information
will benefit not only SKY’s 808,000 plus subscribers but any TV viewer
in NZ.

The SKY TV app delivers many useful features to make TV viewing even
more convenient. After downloading the app users can remote record shows
to their MY SKY decoders, set reminder alerts for their favourite
programmes, create their own personal guide with favourite channels or
share what they like through Facebook, Twitter, SMS or email. SKY
subscribers can even book a recording of SKY Box Office movies or SKY
ARENA events, like the upcoming Sonny Bill Williams fight, through their
iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

SKY believes the most used feature will be the search functionality.
The ability to search for a programme on every channel through a
portable device without interrupting television viewing should be hugely
popular.

John Fellet, SKY Chief Executive said, “I’m so impressed with this
new app I can’t wait for all New Zealand TV viewers to experience it.
The app is so easy to use and brings so much convenience to television
viewing being both portable and available 24/7. We’re sure it will be
well used and we certainly plan to release more functionality in the
near future”.

New features are already under development and will be released at a
later date. They are planned to include the ability to add services and
channel packages to SKY subscriptions and a recommendations feature.

The SKY Television app is in the Apple store today.
