MasterChef: The Professionals

Series 12 - Episode 7



After this week’s skills test, two professional chefs have definitely got something to prove: incredibly one walks into the kitchen with no idea what a croque monsieur is (but manages to serve up something with such a big smile, the judges almost forgive her lack of knowledge), while another makes “vibrant pea risotto” that’s more grey than green. Meanwhile, a naval cook makes enough bechamel sauce to feed the whole ship’s crew.

There are a few surprises come the signature dish round, with one plate described by Gregg Wallace as “remarkable… delightful”, while Marcus Wareing and Monica Galetti hail another as being an “outstanding piece of skill”. Looks tasty, too.  


The first heat of the week sees three chefs challenged to prepare a croque monsieur in 15 minutes for Marcus Wareing, while Monica Galetti sets three more the task of making pea risotto. The six contestants move on to the Signature Dish stage, where they must inspire both judges with their own unique creation before three are chosen to go through to the quarter final and three leave the contest.
