Masterchef: The Professionals | Series 14 Preview (BBC One)

As the hospitality industry faces another year of unprecedented challenges, MasterChef: The Professionals showcases the range of culinary talent across the next generation of chefs in the UK.



Renowned chefs Marcus Wareing and Monica Galetti preside over the UK’s premier cooking competition alongside judge Gregg Wallace.



In tonight’s first heat, the first four professional chefs arrive to make their mark in the MasterChef kitchen and to stake their claim to the coveted trophy. With their reputations on the line, their knowledge and experience are tested as they face the infamous Skills Test.




Marcus challenges two chefs to prepare the British classic bangers and mash, served with a beer and onion gravy, in just 20 minutes. This seemingly simple dish has the potential to trip up the chefs, as small details are key to its success.


The other two chefs take on Monica’s test, monkfish with a pea and bacon ragout. This dish is all about timing and holding your nerve under pressure.


Masterchef The Professionals returns Monday 8th November at 7:35pm on BBC One.
