Tonight is the final of MasterChef: The Professionals 2017. MasterChef presenter Gregg Wallace and two of Britain's leading chefs, Michelin-starred chef Marcus Wareing and Monica Galetti are edging closer to finding the 2017 champion. Just one almighty cook-off remains for them to assess the talent of the finalists.
Over the last seven weeks, 48 of the most talented and tenacious chefs in the UK have battled each other for the coveted title. Now, just three chefs remain. This is the last time they cook in the competition and the evening ends with one of them receiving the hard-won title.
Tonight the final three outstanding professionals, who have created some incredible plates of food throughout the competition, face one final challenge: to cook the best three courses of their lives for the judges. They return for the final time to the MasterChef kitchen and spend three hours creating a three-course menu of starter, main and dessert which showcases their exceptional culinary abilities. This is the moment where everything is laid bare for the judges, as their plates will expose everything they have learned over the last seven weeks. They can't falter as they battle to display everything they have to give - their talent for flavour and creativity, their ability to remain calm and controlled under immense pressure and to flawlessly deliver three plates of incredible food. The reward is immeasurable as their career could change forever when one of them is crowned MasterChef: The Professionals Champion 2017.
