Episode 1: MasterChef: The Professionals

Summary

The four competitors in the first heat are challenged to prepare bangers and mash served with beer & onion gravy, with only 20 minutes to complete a dish that is not as simple as it looks. Judges Monica Galetti, Gregg Wallace and Marcus Wareing will pick the two best efforts, and set a second challenge for the cooks who made them - serving up monkfish with a pea and bacon ragout

Review

“Oh dear!” It’s not what any chef wants to hear from Marcus Wareing or Monica Galetti after struggling to complete one of their nerve-racking skills tests. Although Gregg Wallace is much easier to please (if it’s edible, he’s happy), you wouldn’t blame any of the 32 professional chefs who are taking part this year for throwing in the towel (or apron) at this early stage of the competition.

However, it’s a different story in the second part (shown after EastEnders) when the four chefs prepare their own two-course meal – one of them blows the judges away. “Fabulous! Absolutely delicious! I love that!” Now that is the sort of reaction you want to hear.

While the show follows a well-trodden path, it’s like the dish of sausage, mash and onion gravy that Wareing demonstrates – familiar and comforting yet tantalising and exciting, too.
