MasterChef The Professionals 2022 episode 7: In the first heat of the week, four more brave chefs set out to prove they have talent to get to the top. To begin, they must hold their nerve under the watchful eyes of judges Anna Haugh and Marcus Wareing in the ever-daunting Skills Test.
Marcus sets the Skills Test for two of the chefs, asking them to break down a rack of pork into chops, French trim one and cook it with a Spanish-style butter bean stew. The other two chefs have 20 minutes to complete a test set by Anna. They must prepare a plate of tempura vegetables with nori seasoning and a Japanese-style chilli mayonnaise.
All four chefs then have one last opportunity to win over the judges in the Signature Menu cook-off. The heat is on, as they are given one hour and 30 minutes to showcase their own cooking style with a main and dessert of their choosing. If they fail to deliver on taste, technique and presentation, their time in the competition could be up. Only those who can keep their cool and brilliantly execute their food will earn a place in the quarter-final.
MasterChef The Professionals 2022 episode 7
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.
