Episode 1

Restaurateur John Torode and fruit and veg man Gregg Wallace look for the country's next masterchef. The contestants have been picked from hundreds of applicants and will face three tests. First, they will invent a dish from scratch in forty minutes using only the ingredients they've been given. Next, they will help in Luciano's restaurant over a lunchtime service. And finally, they will create a two course meal for the judges. Only one of them will make it through to the quarter finals.
