MasterChef The Professionals 2022 episode 3: This year’s first quarter-final sees the strongest five chefs from the first two heats return to battle it out in the MasterChef Kitchen. First up, it’s an Invention Test where the chefs must think on their feet and create a stand-out brunch dish. They have just ten minutes to choose their ingredients from a selection of meats, fish, fruit, vegetables, eggs and breads, followed by 70 minutes to execute their dishes to perfection. Which of these professionals can dig deep and deliver a restaurant standard brunch dish? Only the best will do, as at the end of the round, one chef must leave the competition.
The remaining contenders must then raise their game yet again as they face the daunting task of cooking for three of the UK’s most discerning restaurant critics, Jimi Famurewa, William Sitwell and Tom Parker Bowles. Can they make an impression for the right reasons and serve knockout dishes in one of the most intense rounds of the competition? Only the two most talented chefs will go through to the semi-finals and continue in the battle to become this year’s MasterChef: The Professionals champion.
MasterChef The Professionals 2022 episode 3
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.
