Episode 9 Recap
The Top 9 home cooks faced an array of astonishing and exotic ingredients that the judges count among their favourites from their own restaurant kitchens. The home cooks who take the biggest risks are the ones who reap the biggest rewards, including Kaila's perfectly roasted squab (pigeon), and Tammara's efforts with an Asian -inspired squab-based broth and home-made noodles. Ultimately, Danielle ekes out the win with her monkfish paired with a sea urchin velouté. As the winner of the Mystery Box, Danielle chooses Nanaimo Bars as the sweet the home cooks must elevate into a fine dining dessert in the Great Canadian Bake Sale elimination challenge. The kitchen is in chaos as the cooks work feverishly to plate a MasterChef quality dessert, but ultimately, many of the dishes fall desperately short of looking and tasting good. Tammara finally wins her first challenge, with Eric coming in second; they will be captains in the next team challenge. Three cooks who are usually on top - Pino, Carly, and Marida - fall to the bottom. Ultimately, a very emotional Carly is asked to leave the MASTERCHEF CANADA kitchen.

MASTERCHEF CANADA airs Mondays at 8 p.m./7 p.m. CT on CTV and CTV GO (visit to confirm local broadcast times). Last night's episode is now available on demand at and the CTV GO app.
