MasterChef episode 17 2021 – UK: 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?
MasterChef episode 17 2021 – UK
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.
