MasterChef episode 16 2021 – The Professionals: This week’s quarter-final sees the strongest four chefs from heats seven and eight return to face two more demanding challenges.
First, it’s an Invention Test. Marcus and Monica ask the chefs to create a dish based on the theme of cheese. With ten minutes to select their ingredients and 70 minutes to cook, the chefs must act quickly to produce an accomplished dish that balances the bold flavours and textures of cheese. Will they be brave enough to think out of the box?
They then undertake the daunting task of cooking for three of the UK’s most discerning restaurant critics: Tracey MacLeod, Jimi Famurewa and Jay Rayner. Under the increased pressure, they must keep their focus and deliver an ambitious and memorable two-course menu in one hour and 15 minutes. Only the most talented chefs will go through to the semi-finals and continue their pursuit of the MasterChef: The Professionals title.
MasterChef episode 16 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.
