Larissa Takchi pulled off the immunity challenge of the season by yanking the culinary rug from underneath Adam D’Sylva’s feet.
It was the first time Larry had made it to the second stage of an immunity cook and she wasn’t about to waste her shot at claiming a shiny pin.
After her yakitori-style chicken with bonito mayonnaise and furikake seasoning secured her a spot against the head chef of Tonka and Coda in Melbourne, she got to work in putting together the most bats**t collection of items from the ‘MasterChef’ pantry.
MasterChef’s Larissa and Derek dating Story

Things are heating up on MasterChef Australia this season, and not just in the kitchen.
The show’s resident heartthrob Derek Lau is a favorite amongst female fans, and a new social media snap has got some wondering if he and contestant Larissa Takchi are an item.
Larissa has shared a photo of her and 27-year-old Derek wearing the exact same shirt, and from there the cute banter between the pair has kicked off.
“Pretty sure I wore this better,” Larissa captioned the post, before Derek cheekily commented, “You gotta stop shopping in the male section”.
Larissa used a classic Mean Girls line for her comeback, saying, “your mums chest hair (sic)”, to which Derek responded, “you little ….”.
Hmm, sounds like some innocent ‘treat them mean, keep them keen’ flirting to us, and some fans thought so too.
