MasterChef (UK) – The Professionals S09E15
The second group of five chefs face two tough tests set by Monica and Marcus. First, they must cook together to create a three-course fine-dining menu for five discerning guests at the French ambassador’s residence. They then return to the MasterChef kitchen to cook off against each other for a place in the semi-finals. Only the chefs with the talent and dedication to deliver at the highest level will be taken through.
In their first challenge, the chefs travel to one of London’s most exclusive addresses, the French ambassador’s residence. Marcus and Monica set them the task of cooking a three-course fine-dining menu from a selection of the finest French ingredients for the ambassador and her special guests. The chefs must work as a team to come up with perfectly-executed dishes worthy of the occasion and the guest list of gastronomic connoisseurs, including the ambassador’s chef de cuisine.
With the team challenge behind them, the five chefs return to the MasterChef kitchen where they must set their friendships aside and cook as individuals again as they battle for their place in the competition. Just 90 minutes and one showstopper dish is all that stands between the chefs and a place in the semi-finals. With so much at stake, only the most exceptional food will be good enough and any mistake could cost them their future. After tasting all five dishes, Monica and Marcus decide whose time in the competition is finally up and which four chefs will move forward.
Only the very best chefs will go on to semi-finals week and keep alive their dream of being crowned Professional MasterChef 2016.
