It was a menu of winkles, cockles and parsley on toast, an Indian-inspired roast lamb and a delicate take on rhubarb and custard that won Jane Devonshire the title of
in 2016. “Stunning” was John Torode’s verdict on her main course; “A piece of modern art” was how Gregg Wallace described her dessert. So she’s a tough act to follow, but the contestants this year have certainly reached a formidable standard.
There have been mistakes along the way, though: not just Fumbi’s honey cheesecake that became a sweet puddle, and an apologetic Selwyn’s raw loin of lamb, but also ill-advised innovations such as custard ravioli, tomato water and sweet potato chocolate mousse. And, of course, there was Bramblegate, when the description of contestant Brodie’s partridge dish as containing brambles rather than blackberries got everyone in a twitter.
No such diversions now: just an intense bout of cooking and a divine three-course meal stands between the finalists and victory.
After a formidable seven-week contest the search for the country's best amateur cook reaches its climax as the finalists push themselves to the limit one last time. This is their chance to show everything they have learned, and in three hours demonstrate what sort of cook they have become. They must produce three exceptional courses, push the culinary boundaries and give the judges an awe-inspiring tasting. Then it's over to John Torode and Gregg Wallace as they decide which of the trio deserves to succeed last year's victor Jane Devonshire and be crowned MasterChef Champion 2017. Last in the series.
