MasterChef: The Professionals

MasterChef: The Professionals Uncovered

Radio Times
Review by:
Jane Rackham

When Michel Roux Jr strolls around the MasterChef kitchen observing the professional chefs at work, who knew that he checks out which knife they’re using and even what shoes they’re wearing? Along with insights like this are reminders of previous series, including the chef who served peaches with lentils to a revolted Gregg Wallace and the skills test that prompted Monica Galetti to say, ”I hate watching you work. It’s dirty, it’s disgusting.”

But there’s dish after dish of glorious-looking food, though Michel admits he’s bored with all the “smears, schmears, wipes, and splodges” that decorate every plate.
