MasterChef episode 6 2019 – The Professionals
First up, the chefs face an invention test, featuring a particular ingredient. This week, Monica has selected a favourite, found at the heart of many cuisines – the onion. The professionals are under pressure when faced with a whole host of varieties of onion and a huge array of other ingredients. They need to focus and rapidly find inspiration to cook a dish in 70 minutes that will deliver flavour, finesse, sparkle, and an inspired approach to the onion. At the end of the challenge, two contestants leave the competition.
The remaining four chefs go on to cook their food for three of the UK’s most discerning restaurant critics. William Sitwell, Tracey MacLeod and Amol Rajan take great delight in dishing up their opinions and uncovering new culinary talent. The hopefuls are given one hour and 15 minutes to showcase their culinary prowess with a two-course menu designed to dazzle the critics and the judges and keep them in the competition.
Only the three most talented chefs will go through to knockout week and continue their pursuit of the MasterChef: The Professionals 2019 title.
