MasterChef contestants have been known to knock up some, uh, slightly unusual culinary concoctions, but tonight's (April 20) episode really took the biscuit – the whole bakery, in fact.
But before we get on to kidney curry, vinegar pearls, squid ink tuille and blue cheese ice cream – yeah, you heard us – we need to address the issue of who made it through to the quarter-final.
In yet another twist during tonight's episode, four hopefuls, rather than the usual three, made it through to the next round: Brodie, Jim, Louise and Shauna. Congrats, guys!
But while the judges were clearly loving the food served to them, viewers at home were positively incensed by some of the culinary
crimes decisions made during tonight's heat.
First in the firing line was kidney and lentil rogan josh, which let's just say, some of you weren't feeling particularly enthusiastic about.

Not long after that, viewers were quick to express their disdain for chocolate soil. It's chocolate guys, what's not to love?
If I never hear the phrase 'chocolate soil' again it will be too soon, the dessert equivalent of truffle oil #masterchef- el d (@feelingshaver) April 20, 2017
'Chocolate soil' makes it sound awful, can't people just call it chocolate crumbs!? #MasterChef- Caroline Cook (@caroline_cook_) April 20, 2017

Also up for universal derision were the worryingly-named 'vinegar pearls'. (No, we have no idea either.)

Vinegar pearls sounds like one of the acts that would auditioned in Phoenix Nights. #masterchef- Sarah (@sbl1976) April 20, 2017
But garnering the most outrage of all was, of course, Jim's, erm... delicious dessert of blue cheese ice cream 😷.
Form an orderly queue, please.
