MasterChef The Professionals 2022 episode 10: It’s the last week of heats, and four more ambitious chefs set out to prove they have what it takes to win the title. In order to progress in the competition, they must impress in a daunting Skills Test and then cook two dishes of their own creation in the Signature Menu round. Only the chefs who can demonstrate the all-round skills, technique and flair of a future champion will make it through to the quarter-final.
Two chefs are set a Skills Test by Marcus Wareing, who asks them to fillet a sea bream, steam one portion and serve it with an Asian-style broth and rice. Anna Haugh tests the skills of the other two chefs when she asks them to make beetroot tortellini with a goat’s cheese and walnut filling, served with warm beetroot vinaigrette.
Finally, the four chefs have one last chance to win over the judges when they each cook their two-course Signature Menu. They have one hour and 30 minutes to perfectly execute their tried and tested recipes for Anna, Marcus and Gregg. They must deliver on presentation, technique and taste if they want to secure their future in the competition. The two weakest contenders will be sent home.
MasterChef The Professionals 2022 episode 10
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.
