WEEK 11

Classic Mary Berry

A Green & Pleasant Land

Mary embraces the British countryside with fresh and honest bucolic cooking inspired by what we grow on our farms and gardens; from a joyous pasta inspired by a classic French herb sauce, to a perfect way to partner asparagus and how to serve up the most scrumptious roasted vegetables. Mary makes her way through our vegetable rows and orchards ending with her own inspired version of the delicious Tarte Tatin. To further explore the green fields she takes a step back in time to journey on one of the Watercress Line’s 19th century steam trains, where she leaves the stove to help fire up the 300 tonne engine.

Glen helps out a bodybuilder whose career in trunks is suffering because of a tattoo he woke up with; Luke’s derriere disaster proves to be a two-man job for Sketch and Jay while Alice removes a Magaluf mistake and covers a design that reminds Katie of her ex…and periods.

999 Rescue Squad

Out of the thousands who applied, this series’ amateur cooks have made it through to compete over four weeks of Heats, ready to produce some of the most inspiring exceptional and unusual food ever seen on the series.

It’s the third week of Heats and seven more hopefuls need to pull out all the stops to prove to judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace that they have the potential to rise above the rest to become MasterChef 2018 Champion.

This year sees the return of the MasterChef Market, stocked full of the best quality produce from across the world including meat, fish, fruit, vegetables, nuts, pulses, grains and dairy. The challenge is to invent and then cook one dish using anything from the Market. This time, the featured ingredients include chicken thighs, chorizo, crab, sea trout and prawns. They have an hour and 10 minutes to dazzle the judges and prove they are good enough to stay in the competition. The stakes are high in this round and it’s important to choose wisely because after tasting all seven dishes, John and Gregg will decide which four cooks are good enough to stay, while three cooks will be sent straight home.

The four remaining cooks now have one more challenge standing between them and a Quarter Final place. They must cook two courses that will excite not just John and Gregg, but also some very special guests. Some of MasterChef’s most inspiring winners and finalists return to judge the food of this year’s new contenders to the throne.

In tonight’s Heat, the contestants must attempt to impress 2016’s MasterChef Finalists –Jack Layer and Billy Wright  and 2016 MasterChef Champion, Jane Devonshire.

After the four hopefuls have cooked, John and Gregg will decide which three contestants deserve to take the next step in the competition and go through to Friday’s Quarter Final.

In a competition where only the food matters, these amateurs will need to be good to survive - taking their first step towards being crowned MasterChef Champion 2018.

Tonight, it’s the Quarter Final and the six talented Heat winners have no time to rest on their laurels as they continue to fight for their place in the competition.

In the Critic’s Test, the week’s best amateurs will be put through the mill with a seriously daunting test set by one of the country’s toughest food critics. Tonight’s brief has been set by Grace Dent.

Her challenge for the amateur cooks is to make their best comfort food dish - something Grace would want to eat on her day off.

After cooking their dish based on this brief, the contestants stand before Grace Dent and judges John and Gregg, to hear, face-to-face, what they think of their dish and whether they’ve managed to rise to the challenge and fulfil the expectations.

At the end of this Quarter Final, the best cooks will go through to Knockout Week, taking another step closer to being crowned MasterChef Champion 2018.
