Masterchef: The Professionals returns on Thursday 16th November at 8pm on BBC2. 


What happens in this episode?

The quarter-final chefs face Monica Galetti’s invention test, in which they must create a sweet or savoury dish using fresh herbs. Only the four most impressive go through to the next round, where they have 75 minutes to cook a two-course dinner for critics William Sitwell, Tracey MacLeod and Tom Parker Bowles. However, judges Marcus Wareing and Monica ultimately decide who deserves a place in knockout week.

What’s it about? 

A spin-off from the original, Masterchef: The Professionals sees six young chefs battle it out to make it to the top of the culinary world. With skills week to knock out week and then the two-course menu final to get through, the young hopefuls have got quite the long and stressful road ahead of them.

Monica Galetti and Marcus Wareing return as judges, with Gregg Wallace back to host.


Is it any good?

With 10 seasons and a BAFTA Award win under its belt, it’s safe to say it’s one of the tastiest cooking competitions on television.
