Next Episode of Masterchef: The Professionals is
The hunt for a young chef who wants to make it to the top of the culinary world.
In the last semi-final, the three chefs still to do battle for a place in finals week are sent to work under Michelin-starred chef George Blogg. His unique culinary style capitalises on being situated within one of the UK's most formative kitchen gardens at the exclusive Gravetye Manor. The chefs are given the honour and nervewracking experience of being responsible for one of George's dishes each during a packed lunchtime service. Under George's watchful gaze and firm guidance, the competitors will be hard pushed to keep up with the frantic pace. The chefs return the next day to cook George's own signature dish, a garden salad that is so seasonal, the ingredients change daily. They have to prove they understand George's philosophy and showcase their palate and creativity by first selecting their own produce from the 500 on offer in the two-acre kitchen garden. Finally, the chefs cook a two-course menu for Marcus and Monica. Only the strongest two chefs will go through to finals week.
The remaining four chefs start the finals week with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to cook at one of the most prestigious events in the culinary calendar, The Chef's Table. Descending on a London location are 28 heavyweights of modern gastronomy. This is a potentially career-changing moment for the finalists to showcase their own food for their idols. Each finalist is in charge of one of the menu's four courses - starter, fish, main and dessert. Over five tense hours, under the close scrutiny of Marcus and Monica, the chefs prepare every single element of their ambitious dishes. The pressure is immense, the chefs have to take their food to a whole new level by executing 30 plates in the most terrifying service they have ever faced. If the finalists want to show that they have the talent to be a culinary star of the future, they have to deliver faultless dishes to both excite and impress the most discerning diners in the country.
The penultimate episode sees the four remaining chefs battle for an all-important place in the final three, and the chance to go to Oslo to learn from the star of Nordic gastronomy and cook in the three-Michelin-star restaurant Maaemo. Chef Esben Holmboe Bang is a groundbreaking, innovative, young chef. This dynamic chef creates his 20-dish menus using the heart of traditional Norwegian food and produce. The three finalists have a rare opportunity to learn from Esben and his team. They must then show what they have learnt by creating a stunning dish to impress Esben himself. The chefs will have to draw inspiration from Esben's philosophy and the produce in front of them, mahogany clams, mackerel, fermented plants, ants and edible flowers.
One chef will be crowned the 2016 champion. The last and best three contenders cook for the last time, and just three courses stand between them and the life-changing title. The outstanding chefs, who have cooked some exceptional plates of food to reach the final, face one last challenge: to cook the best three courses of their lives for the MasterChef judges. In three hours they must bring together a starter, a main and a dessert. As the tension builds, they must use everything they have learnt, all the inspiration they have gathered and all their talent and tenacity, to deliver flawlessly executed food, with mind-blowing flavours and stunning presentation.
