The intriguing world of cuisine comes to the fore in this long-running BBC series; Masterchef. The series is hosted by Greg Wallace and John Torode, alongside guest judges from both the practical and critical spheres of the culinary world. After seeing the remaining, talented home-cooks experience their first taste of cooking in a professional environment earlier in the week, the competition is beginning to heat up.
As knock-out week comes to a close, the competition sees 9 remaining chefs vying for a place in the semi-finals. Only one obstacle stands between each one of them and progression into the next round; they are challenged to create one dish across 90 minutes which showcases enough talent and finesse to prove them worthy of a place in the semi-finals. Of the nine cooks left in the competition, only the top 3 in this invention test will automatically progress, while the other 6 will have to compete against one another head to head to ensure their progression.
Masterchef – Friday 9:00pm on BBC1.
