MasterChef episode 21 2021 – The Professionals: In the penultimate round, the pressure is on as the four remaining chefs compete to secure their place in the final three and a chance to cook in one of the world’s best restaurants. First, they must cook-off in the Classic Reimagined round. It’s a potentially career-defining moment for the contenders, and they have two hours to stamp their own personalities and styles onto a world-renowned classic. One chef will leave the contest, as only three can proceed to the next round.
The surviving three contenders are then taken out of the MasterChef kitchen and thrown into a cooking world most chefs can only dream of – one of the world’s best restaurants, Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester. With an astonishing 17 Michelin stars across an empire of global establishments, Alain Ducasse is the most celebrated chef living today and has set the standard for modern European cuisine. His world-renowned London restaurant has held three Michelin stars for the past 11 years and is led by executive chef Jean-Philippe Blondet.
Here, the first challenge sees the chefs attend a masterclass run by Jean-Philippe, where they get an insight into Alain Ducasse’s philosophy before creating their own dish. They have one hour to deliver a dish inspired by the restaurant’s ethos of championing vegetables and zero-waste, before serving it to Jean-Philippe.
Then the finalists face the biggest challenge of their careers. They must cook with Jean-Philippe and his elite kitchen brigade in a restaurant service like no other. Each finalist will be responsible for preparing and cooking one course for an exclusive group of selected guests. They must step up to new heights and handle the pressures of working in a three-Michelin-starred kitchen. Precision and attention to detail are crucial at every stage, and anything less than perfection will not be tolerated.

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.
