Last week on the show, contestants went through a training session by the judges. After the task, they were officially admitted into the “Master Class”. On this episode, a guest Judge – Chef Imoteda came on board and for the very first time on the cooking reality show, Knorr Taste Quest, viewers were given the opportunity to determine ingredients which will be used to prepare meals.

The battle became real as the ingredients used were sent in by fans on Facebook from Kaduna, Port- Harcourt and Lagos. Viewers requested that Garri should be a part of the ingredients needed for the three course meal in this episode.

The contestants were given 60 minutes for the three- course meal which should include  Garri, Sweet pepper and Garlic chives as compulsory ingredients for the starter, while Garri, Groundnut, Chicken, Cabbage, Peanut and Corn were compulsory ingredients for the main dish. The dessert should consist of “Chocolate Mousse” and a dish prepared with Ata-rodo, Pineapple, Pear, Lemon, Coconut, Grapes and Garri. However, there was also a pantry at both ends of the kitchen were contestants could pick up useful ingredients to aid in preparing the dishes.


After 60 minutes, Ugochi was first to present her dish. She was only able to come up with two dishes; her main dish which was eba with vegetable soup and chicken, while her chocolate mousse did not turn out well. Balogun was scored high on his presentation even before the Judges tasted his dishes. His starter was “Vege Tempora”; the main dish included Asian mixed peppers, cabbage, diced chicken, boiled corn, and spring rolls with Garri. Dr. Robert, Chef Fregz and the guest Judge; Chef Imoteda enjoyed every bite of his dishes and jointly agreed that his dessert was an excellent take on Chocolate mousse.

Balogun unanimously emerged the winner of the day’s task and was rewarded with N20, 000 by the Knorr brand. Dapo and Onisarotu were placed on probation, while Zoey and Chirinma were evicted as their performances were far below expectations.

Knorr Taste Quest 3 promises to be fun, exciting and full of thrills you have never seen in the kitchen and the winner will be going home with a whooping N5, 000,000 naira cash prize; kitchen equipment and loads of Knorr bouillon cubes. Also, prizes of N1, 000,000 and N500, 000 will be given to the first and second runner respectively.
