Duration: 30 minutes

Double Michelin starred chef Michel Roux Jnr is joined by Gregg Wallace and Monica Galetti, as they continue their hunt for a professional with the talent to become Britain's next culinary superstar.

In this heat, ten chefs from all over Britain arrive in the Masterchef kitchen to face their first test. This initial challenge will demonstrate to Monica and Gregg whether or not they have the necessary skills and palate to cook for Monica's legendary boss, Michel Roux Jnr.

In the seven-ingredient invention test, the ten chefs must hold their nerve and create a dish from a selection of beef mince, wild mushrooms, an aubergine, red wine, pears, brioche and almonds. In one hour they must prove their skill, palate, and creativity if they are to impress the judges and win the opportunity to cook for Michel. For now, they are all safe but in the next round five of these ten chefs must return and face their final test before Monica and Gregg decide who will cook for Michel Roux Jnr.
