Episode 8

Cookery challenge. It's quarter-final day, so the chefs must make a dish of their own invention, with the best four going on to cook for three of the UK's toughest food critics.

Legendary double Michelin-starred chef Michel Roux Jr and MasterChef dining expert Gregg Wallace hunt for Britain's next culinary superstar who has what it takes to go to the top of the culinary world.

In another quarter-final, the six best chefs from the first heats must prove to Michel and Gregg they have what it takes by making a dish of their own invention. Choosing from a fantastic array of ingredients, including John Dory, quail and oysters, they must blow the judges away with one course.

Only the best four chefs will go on to showcase their skill to three of the UK's toughest restaurant critics. The critics will be expecting two exceptional courses and the chefs have only an hour and a quarter to produce a jaw dropping menu that will determine their MasterChef future.

Only the two most talented chefs will go through to the semi- finals and stand a chance of becoming this year's Professional MasterChef.
