#butterybiscuitbase: Your 140 character reviews of MasterChef episode one series nine
From custard and courgette desserts to a suspicious date sauce, we look at what the Twittersphere had to say about the new series opener
#MasterChef was trending last night when the first episode of the ninth series was shown on BBC One.
Tweets mocked the judges’ overuse of the phrase “buttery biscuit base” with Gregg Wallace’s love of fattening food the subject of many an online joke.
There was disgust at the thought of a custard and courgette dessert, apathy towards contestant Dale’s potato fondant and comments that Emily’s thick date sauce resembled poo.
As for the introduction of the new palate test, many of you seemed confident you would excel in the round- while others said they were tiring of the show’s format.
MasterChef continues tonight, 8.30pm on BBC One
#masterchef was good. Vomit covered scallops and a slug on a plate. And a buttery biscuit base. Perfect start.— DevonianDawn (@DevonianDawn) March 12, 2013
"Foie gras, French beans, anchovies, quail's eggs" > Easier if they just said "stuff you plebs watching this have never eaten". #Masterchef—p neurosceptic (@neurosceptic) March 12, 2013
Emily's starter is a chunder of scallops with a reflux foam. Her main is a yellow thing with a slug curled around it. #masterchef—p Nicholas Pegg (@NicholasPegg) March 12, 2013

Sly pun by Greg when he said Dale is best chef in room, when John is standing opposite #masterchef—p Henry Richardson (@HJR848) March 12, 2013
Just turned over to #masterchef. Have I missed the bit where they choose who's going home with Gregg?— Warren (@tumour) March 12, 2013
"My mum's food is rubbish" That explains everything, Gregg. #Masterchef—p Ozzy (@karohemd) March 13, 2013
Is it wrong to instantly dislike someone from seeing one shot of him wearing a tweed flat cap inside? Too late. #masterchef—p Bronagh (@BeebsyMcA) March 12, 2013
