Season 13 / Episode 1 and airs on 29 March 2017 19:00
John Torode and Gregg Wallace are looking for the country's next star chef. Those who make it through to the quarter-final must prove their knowledge and passion for food. The heats have produced four exceptional cooks, but only one of them will make it through today to become a semi-finalist. Initially named Masterchef Goes Large, the series changed it's name to Masterchef in 2008.
It's the final week of MasterChef 2016, and the five remaining amateur cooks have an immense task ahead of them. In their first task, they have just four hours to cook a complex five-course dinner devised by trailblazing chef Michael O'Hare, which will then be served to five leading actresses of the stage and screen. Back at the MasterChef kitchen, the finalists are challenged to demonstrate everything they have learnt and create a dish inspired by something personal in their lives, showing imagination, flair and creativity. As the final five becomes the final four, the amateurs must push themselves to the limit to impress judges John and Greg.
Finals week continues as the final four talented amateur cooks embark on a culinary odyssey to Mexico, where they face three extraordinary challenges. The finalists are tasked with setting up a food stall in the heart of the market in Mexico City, using ingredients, cooking methods and equipment that are totally alien to them. Next, the amateurs have the honour of taking over lunch service at Pujol, a restaurant renowned for being the best in the country. Finally, the amateurs have the daunting challenge of creating an exceptional dinner at the British Embassy for some of the leading figures in Mexico's cultural and food communities. Inspired by their Mexican culinary adventure, and showcasing the skills they've developed through their entire MasterChef journey, the final four's dishes must be truly exceptional for them to stand out and prove they have what it takes to be crowned MasterChef champion.
The final amateur cooks face their most iconic and terrifying challenge yet - The Chef's Table. The contestants must cook a three-course menu designed by culinary talent Daniel Humm, which they will serve to a table of the country's finest chefs. Only three of the remaining four amateurs will be able to take part, and the contestants are challenged to cook a classic dish with their stamp on it to win their place. Failure to impress means being sent home, and for the remaining cooks, a mammoth task lies ahead. With the final just around the corner, it's their last chance to prove they have what it takes to lift the MasterChef trophy.
It's the MasterChef final. After a formidable seven-week competition, the search for the country's best amateur cook reaches its climax. The finalists must push themselves to the limit one last time before John Torode and Gregg Wallace crowns one of the three highly talented cooks as the champion. In this final challenge, the finalists must pull out all the stops, show everything they have learned, and demonstrate what sort of cook they have become. They have three hours to produce three exceptional courses, push the culinary boundaries and give the judges an awe-inspiring tasting like never before. At the end of the challenge, one of the finalists will lift the trophy and become the 12th MasterChef champion.
Out of the hundreds that auditioned, 64 amateur cooks are through to battle it out over four weeks of heats, producing some of the most inspiring, exceptional and unusual food ever seen on the series. The first eight hopefuls try to prove to judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace that they have the potential to be the 2017 MasterChef Champion. This year sees the introduction of the all new MasterChef market, which is stocked full of amazing produce. The first challenge is to invent and cook one dish using what's available in the market. They have an hour and twenty minutes to dazzle the judges and prove they are good enough to stay in the competition. After tasting all eight dishes, John and Gregg decide which five cooks are good enough to stay. The five remaining contestants must then cook two courses that will excite not just John and Gregg but also last year's MasterChef finalists. John and Gregg then decide which three contestants deserve to go through to the quarter-final.
Eight more amateurs try to prove to judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace that they have the potential to be the 2017 MasterChef Champion.
It is the first quarter-final of the series, and the six cooks face a seriously daunting test set by one of the country's toughest food critics. This episode's brief has been set by journalist and broadcaster Amol Rajan, and the contestants must cook either a savoury dish using Indian spices or a chocolate dessert with a playful twist. After cooking their dish, the contestants must stand before Amol Rajan, John and Gregg to hear what they think of their dish and how well they have kept to the brief. At the end of the quarter-final, the best cooks are put through to Knockout Week, taking another step closer to being crowned MasterChef Champion 2017.
