The search for the UK's 2018 culinary superstar continues. The chefs create an exceptional three-course, fine-dining menu at The Royal College of Physicians.
Knockout week continues on MasterChef: The Professionals. Chef Monica Galetti and Michelin-starred chef Marcus Wareing scrutinise the chefs every move in their bid to uncover the professional chef to crown culinary superstar of 2018.
Tonight, the second group of five chefs face two intense challenges set by Monica and Marcus. The chefs must cook together for the first time as a team to create an exceptional three-course, fine-dining menu at one of London's most prestigious addresses, The Royal College of Physicians. Celebrating their 500th anniversary, the meal must excel. The chefs have two and a half hours to collaborate as a team to design and cook their special menu, which will be served to the president Professor Dame Jane Dacre and her five VIP guests. The chefs' every move will be watched over by judges Monica and Marcus. Will their creative vision and talent shine through? Or will team playing prove to be their weakness?
With the team challenge behind them, the five chefs return to the MasterChef kitchen where they face the judges as individuals once again. Face to face again the chefs will battle it out for a place in the semi-finals by proving to judges Monica, Marcus and Gregg that they really are a cut above the others. With 90 minutes they must create their own unique dish to prove their talent and dedication to deliver at the highest level, and to take them through to the semi-finals. After tasting the dishes, Marcus, Monica and Gregg decide whose time in the MasterChef kitchen is up and which four chefs will move forward in the competition - one giant step close to being crowned MasterChef: The Professionals Champion 2018.
