MasterChef episode 12 2021 – The Professionals: The third quarter-final sees the strongest four chefs from heats five and six return to face two more demanding challenges. First, they face an Invention Test in which they must create a standout dish centered around colour. With an abundance of colourful vegetables, meat and fish to choose from, they have ten minutes to select their ingredients and 60 minutes to prepare and serve a dish. Will the contestants be bold and creative enough to stand out from the pack?
Then the chefs face the challenge of cooking for three of the UK’s toughest restaurant critics: Grace Dent, Jay Rayner and Tom Parker Bowles. They have one hour and 15 minutes to deliver a perfectly executed and memorable two-course menu that will excite the palates of the critics and the MasterChef judges? Only the two most talented contenders will make it through to the semi-finals.
MasterChef episode 12 2021 – The Professionals
MasterChef is a competitive cooking show television format created by Franc Roddam, which originated with the UK version in July 1990. The format was revived and updated for the BBC in February 2005 by executive producers Roddam and John Silver with series producer Karen Ross.
The revived format is sold internationally by Banijay. Its first international adaptation was MasterChef Australia, which began in 2009, and then the adaptation was executed within several other countries of the world.
The show’s format has been exported around the world under the same MasterChef logo, and is now produced in more than 40 countries and airs in over 200 territories.
The format has appeared most often in four major versions: the main MasterChef series, MasterChef: The Professionals for professional working chefs, Celebrity MasterChef featuring well known celebrities as the contestants and Junior MasterChef, a version created and adapted for children, which was first developed in 1994 and has also expanded to other countries in recent years.
Despite the four major versions, in 2012, Australia created the fifth version called MasterChef All-Stars, for former contestants to raise money for charity. In 2018, Ukraine created MasterChef Teens, for teenage contestants. Brazil created MasterChef: Para Tudo (MasterChef: Stop Everything), a TV show featuring interviews with judges and former contestants, plus recipes and memes, presented by Ana Paula Padrão.
