MasterChef UK: The Professionals Season 15 Episode 08 Description
The hunt for the champion continues as four new chefs set out to prove they are serious contenders for the MasterChef: The Professionals crown.
Two chefs must prove they have what it takes in a Skills Test set by Anna Haugh. They have just 20 minutes to make sweet potato gnocchi with a hazelnut pesto. The other two face Marcus Wareing’s test, which involves a dish of poached apricots and chantilly cream with an almond tuile.
Then all four cook off against each other in the Signature Menu round. This is their chance to showcase what their cooking is all about with recipes of their own design. Only the two most talented contenders will make it through to the quarter-final and continue their pursuit of the MasterChef: The Professionals trophy.
