In tonight’s penultimate show, the final four amateur cooks face a single challenge to earn a place in the final three and a chance to take part in a challenge of a lifetime.
They are tasked with creating their interpretation of a classic dish that will showcase their growing cooking talent to judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace. It’s their last chance to bring together everything they have learned; to let their creativity fly and prove they are worthy finalists. This high-pressure cook-off will be the end of the journey for one of the four finalists.
For the three that remain, there is a chance to work with one of the world’s greatest chefs in the toughest and most daunting challenge of the competition, the Chef’s Table. This year it will be hosted by the legendary Michel Roux Jr at Le Gavroche. The three finalists must deliver food of an exceptional standard to impress some of the best chefs in the country, all of whom have worked in the Le Gavroche kitchen themselves and know these classic dishes inside out. They include MasterChef: The Professionals judge Monica Galetti, MasterChef: The Professionals champion 2009 Steve Groves and Michel’s daughter Emily Roux. As the finalists try to master Le Gavroche’s classic dishes, will they hold their nerve, or is the pressure to deliver too intense?
