Although my taste in food is not the same as Gregg Wallace’s (I’m not really a pudding person), I do agree with him about the standard of cooking on MasterChef this year. It’s been higher than ever. One or two of the home cooks have been serving restaurant-quality food from the very start – and by that, I mean dishes you’d be happy to pay a lot of money for. 

That’s not to say there haven’t been any disasters. This year’s “chocolate fondant” – as John Torode and Gregg describe the show’s famous culinary landmines – was rack of lamb. They were served undercooked meat with lumps of unrendered fat so many times, they started to cringe whenever anyone said they were doing lamb. 

However, it’s unlikely there’ll be any such issues for finalists Mike, Tom and Alexina as they prepare three superb dishes before we hear who is being crowned MasterChef champion 2021.


After an arduous six-week journey, the search for the country's best amateur cook reaches its climax. The finalists have to push themselves to the limit for one last time before judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace crown one of the three talented cooks MasterChef Champion 2021. Tonight, they must produce the best three dishes of their lives, push their culinary boundaries and produce jaw-droppingly impressive food for the judges.
