In the final of the talent, the Sicilian Valeria conquered the judges with spaghetti with sea urchins and coconut mousse and was awarded the title of eighth Italian MasterChef

Mistress of the kitchen and safe in her movements, she has always maintained calm, a smile, humility, never losing heart and facing every challenge with courage and learning to believe more and more in herself. And the same he did yesterday too. So Valeria Raciti, 31 years old from Aci Sant’Antonio (Catania), won the final of MasterChef 8 beating Gilberto Neirotti and Gloria Clama.

Valeria's tasting menu

To cheer for her from the balcony the husband and many competitors / friends who participated in the eighth edition of the talent. And Valeria didn't disappoint them. "Between me and me" is the title of tasting menu who presented to talk about herself and tell about the encounter between tradition and curiosity, complete with six courses (one more than the opponents) that won her the title: the entrée "C'era once upon a time", a review of a bruschetta, with Altamura bread and spherification of tomato; the appetizer cannolo of marinated anchovies, stuffed with beaten aubergines, parsley air, toasted almonds, salicornia and trout eggs; thel first "Meeting between tradition and innovation", spaghetti with sea urchins, coconut foam and seaweed (the dish most praised by the judges); the second "Opposites sometimes attract", veal cheek and raw prawn with Marsala bisque and root and sprout gardener, e "Pigeon Oolong Phoenix Tea", pigeon with Oolong Phoenix tea with beet potatoes and red beets; the "Happy end" dessert, ricotta ice cream on the ground with pistachio and raspberry coulis and citrus sponge.

Love for cooking and grandma

Before joining the Sky cooking show, Valeria was one administrative secretary. She tells of herself: «Love for the kitchen was born with me, I don't remember an actual point of beginning … As a child I often stayed at my grandmother and she was practically always in the kitchen, cooking for everyone, when my mother passed me to pick up from work I almost always had my mess with my dinner prepared by her. So, as a child, when it happened that I stayed at home alone, even to find something ready I would start preparing the most unlikely, certainly inedible recipes, but they certainly served as an exercise. My desire to experiment never ends! . His grandmother, therefore, passed away very little, throughout his race was his "Inspiring muse", so much so that, continues Valeria, "when I tasted something prepared by her I thought that there could not be a better version". For this reason, adds the winner of the eighth edition of MasterChef Italia, "I hope that one day someone will experience these same sensations by eating my dishes".

How the episode went

Alessandro, Gilberto, Gloria and Valeria are the four finalists of MasterChef. In Mystery Box of the last episode they are asked to prepare the first recipe of their first "hypothetical" cookbook. Vince Gilberto who wins an advantage in theInvention Test: discover the secrets of the preparations of the dishes of the super guest Heinz Beck, chef of the three-star Michelin restaurant La Pergola in Rome, and assign them to opponents. His strategy is not successful: Alessandro, the competitor that Gilberto wanted to facilitate, is eliminated, while Gloria and Valeria brilliantly pass the test (the latter making an impossible pomegranate juice ball).
The three remaining competitors now have two and a half hours to present theirs tasting menu: the first courses do not convince the judges, then it is an escalation of excellent dishes, from the second of Gilberto – "Glacier 51 on tomato water and seabed", with clams and salicornia on tomato water – at Gloria's dessert – "Mountain hay mousse", hay mousse with fir-scented granita, wild strawberry sauce and raspberries. But in the end it is Valeria who convinces more. One hundred thousand euros in gold coins, the first cookbook and so many gold confetti are all for her.
