MasterChef The Professionals 2022 episode 9: In another quarter-final, the best four chefs from the week’s two heats return to face two more demanding challenges set by judges Anna Haugh and Marcus Wareing. First, the judges ask the contenders to make a dish based around the tried and tested combination of orange and ginger. As well as a wide variety of oranges and various ginger ingredients to choose from, they have a selection of poultry, fish, vegetables, dried fruit, nuts and chocolate to use in their sweet or savoury dishes. With just ten minutes to plan and an hour and ten minutes to prepare and cook, who will be able to think quickly and deliver a sublime plate of food that stands out from the pack?
Next, they take on a test that has seen even the best chefs crumble under the pressure. They must cook a two-course menu of their own design for three of the UK’s most experienced food critics, Tom Parker Bowles, Tracy MacLeod and Grace Dent. Get it wrong, and it could spell disaster; but get it right, and the critics may take note of a future star. Only the best two chefs will make it through to the semi-finals and keep alive their dreams of lifting the MasterChef: The Professionals 2022 trophy.
MasterChef The Professionals 2022 episode 9
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.
