MasterChef episode 19 2019 – The Professionals
The first challenge the four chefs face in the finals is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to cook at one of the most prestigious events in the UK culinary calendar – the chef’s table. It is the only time in the year when so many of the country’s top culinary talents gather together to dine. These chefs are the leaders and architects of UK gastronomy and cooking for these luminaries provides a potentially career-changing moment for the finalists. This year, the VIP guests boast an incredible 26 Michelin stars between them and include three Michelin-starred Matt Abe, two starred Sat Bains, Jun Tanaka, Nigel Haworth, James ‘Jocky’ Petrie, Nieves Barragan, Atul Kochhar and James Knappett.
Each chef takes charge of one of four courses. Over five intense hours, they are watched by Marcus and Monica as they cook the most important menu of their lives, preparing every last element of their ambitious creations to perfection. The stakes are sky high during this career-defining service, as they strive to be noticed by their culinary idols. Nothing else matters for the chefs as they inch closer to the title of MasterChef: The Professionals 2019.
