Episode 9 of 15.
The pressure is mounting as the country’s best six amateurs enter the sixth week of the cooking competition of their lives.
In tonight’s show judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace, lead the contestants in their first foray into fine dining in large numbers. They have to prepare a delectable three-course meal for over 200 guests at Middle Temple – one of the historical Inns of Court at the heart of the British legal system. Guests at the dinner include some of the most high-ranking legal figures in the land, including Senior High Court Judges and Lord Justices.
Working under the head chef, the contestants must cook in pairs, with each team delivering one course. With so many intricate elements to their dishes, service for this many people at the high standard required is an awesome challenge for the amateurs.
Then, the contestants return to the MasterChef Kitchen for one more fine dining challenge. They have 90 minutes to create two elegant courses that can proudly sit on any fine dining menu, and this time their food will be tasted by two Michelin starred chef and legend Michel Roux Jr. With hearts pounding the contestants must endure their most feared and respected critic’s view of their dishes before the judges decide their fate.
It’s time to really impress as only the finest, most skillful cooks will stay in the competition and have a chance to win the title of MasterChef 2012.
