MasterChef (UK) The Professionals S09E19
Over the next three nights, enormous challenges and life-changing cooking experiences lie ahead for the chefs who have made it to this final week of the competition.
The remaining four chefs start the finals week with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to cook at one of the most prestigious events in the culinary calendar, The Chef’s Table. Descending on a London location are 28 heavyweights of modern gastronomy. This is a potentially career-changing moment for the finalists to showcase their own food for their idols. Guests include Michelin-starred chefs Michael Caines MBE, Sat Baines, Nieves Barragan Mohacho, Simon Rogan, Jonny Lake and Claude Bosi, as well as previous finalists and winners including Anton Piotrowski, who went on to achieve a Michelin star.
Each finalist is in charge of one of the menu’s four courses – starter, fish, main and dessert. Over five tense hours, under the close scrutiny of Marcus and Monica, the chefs prepare every single element of their ambitious dishes. The pressure is immense, the chefs have to take their food to a whole new level by executing 30 plates in the most terrifying service they have ever faced. If the finalists want to show that they have the talent to be a culinary star of the future, they have to deliver faultless dishes to both excite and impress the most discerning diners in the country.
