Cooking for these culinary giants is a huge honour, and the chefs have five hours to prepare one course each for this unique dinner. The pressure is on to execute every single element to perfection and send 20 identical, exquisitely presented dishes out to the guests. Nothing can go amiss as the expert diners will be seeking flawless, mouthwatering, original food. For the finalists, these dishes could make or break their careers and their chances of winning the MasterChef: The Professionals 2022 title.
