Episode 10: MasterChef: The Professionals

Summary

The four chefs each prepare their own two-course signature dishes. They have 90 minutes to cook a main and a dessert which demonstrates their skill, creativity, and individuality, after which judges Marcus Wareing, Monica Galetti and Gregg Wallace,will choose who will be sent home, and who make it through to the quarter final round

Review

Normally the professional chefs are so nervous during the skills test that their personalities don’t start to emerge until the signature dish round. Not this week. One chef’s bravura running commentary reduces the judges to hysterical laughter, although his confidence leaves even Gregg Wallace almost speechless by the end. “We’ve certainly got some characters [in this heat],” says Marcus Wareing.

However, things go awry later, particularly with the puddings: one chef fails to serve three portions, another’s offering is considered “too sickly”, while a third’s looks good but “doesn’t work”. It’s all a bit Goldilocks and the Three Bears. However, one of them does what the judges consider to be “outstanding cooking”. Even so, he’s only 75 per cent satisfied with what he’s produced. Just imagine what it would be like if he was 100 per cent happy.
