MasterChef episode 5 2022 – UK: This week’s seven best home cooks from the first round return to test their culinary wits and show judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace that they have the potential to be MasterChef champion 2022. Tonight’s first task is the Market Challenge, with the seven having to invent a dish on the spot using a marketful of ingredients, including whole mackerel, squid and pork tenderloin.
The pressure is on to impress because at the end of this test one contestant will be sent home. The remaining six then face their most demanding assignment so far – cooking a dish to a brief set by one of the country’s toughest food critics, Grace Dent. Grace has asked them to cook a dish centred around one of her favourite ingredients, the humble potato.
In a competition where only the food matters, and with just four places up for grabs, these amateurs will need to be good to make it through to the quarter-finals.
MasterChef episode 5 2022 – 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.
