Sandra, Pierre-Yves, Meriam and Fatwa are the last candidates still competing in the cooking competition. MasterChef Quebec. Here is a brief summary of their journey.


Encouraged by her friends to post photos of her meals on social networks, Sandra developed a real expertise in the art of presentation, “We eat with our eyes first,” she recalls.

“Before entering the competition, I thought my Achilles heel was sweets, but in the end I won a lot of challenges with sweets. Maybe I should do more,” the food analyst said with a laugh.

“I think I have a tile ghost. I've tried making multiple tiles in the match and they always fail. In my opinion, it's tiles in Masterchef, my ghost,” he added.

Not competitive by nature, Sandra remembers from her time on the show the great team spirit that reigned on the set and the brotherly bonds created among the candidates.

“We formed a really strong bond in a short period of time with people we didn't know but were going through the same thing. That's really the best part of the competition.


Pierre-Yves, a fish specialist, was keen to go far enough to work with seafood. During the bidding challenge last week, he surprised the judges with his plate of king crab ravioli, one of his favorites of the season.

The restaurant challenge was also one of his standout moments, with the candidate describing himself as a “team guy”.

“I do wonders in anything, but the pressure to perform for the judges and the little time we have, for me, it was the most difficult challenge of my adventure,” he said in an interview.

Since its publication, the man who has earned the reputation of “Mr. Protein” says he now works a little more with vegetables and has learned to better recover from his fat-laden kale.

“Every week, we told her to postpone her return flight. But right after the adventure, mom left two days later,” she said with a smile.
