It is Finals Week on MasterChef: The Professionals and after five intense weeks only the most exceptional chefs remain to battle it out for the title. Michel Roux Jr and Monica Galetti push the finalists to the absolute extremes of their cooking ability, but there is one more task standing between them and the incredible culinary adventures that lie ahead.

The finalists must create two exceptional plates of food, but this time from kitchen scraps. Failure to impress at this stage will cost them greatly because after judging their dishes, Michel and Monica will send one more chef home.

To secure their place, the chefs must deliver in this Invention Test with a difference. Gone are the array of quality ingredients they are used to cooking with and instead the judges ask them to make their dishes from left-overs including meat bones, chicken carcasses, fish trimmings, vegetable peelings, stale croissants and bread and overripe fruit.

The chefs must dig deep into their repertoire and show off versatility and imagination if they are to rise to the challenge and remain in the competition. Who will deliver the daring, flavoursome and delicious dishes the judges are looking for and who will fall by the wayside at this crucial stage?
