Episode 5: MasterChef: The Professionals

Summary

Four more professional chefs arrive to make their mark in the MasterChef kitchen. Monica Galetti sets the first test - a pasta challenge where two chefs must make agnolotti filled with burrata and sundried tomatoes, served with a pea and mint pesto. The technique of rolling and filling the perfect pasta pillows requires accuracy and precision. Will they be able to keep calm and deliver, or will nerves overcome them? Next, it's Marcus Wareing's test. Two chefs need to prepare pan-fried calves liver with potato cake and walnut beurre noisette. The chefs can't take their eye off the ball during these crucial 20 minutes or they risk overcooking the liver

Review

“Thank you. You’re through to the next round!” teases Monica Galetti as a chef deftly makes a tricky calves’ liver dish for the skills test. However, that chef is Michelin-starred Marcus Wareing, who’s demonstrating it so, of course, he’s brilliant. The judges are in an unusually light-hearted mood tonight with Gregg Wallace joking that he’s honeymooned in Sri Lanka “several times” and Marcus positively beaming during a chat about pies.

However, in the second helping (after EastEnders) there are mixed reviews for the chefs’ signature dishes. While one is told his main course is “genius”, another is criticised for serving undercooked meat with gritty mushrooms. But he’s not the only one making mistakes.
