MASTERCHEF: THE PRO­FES­SION­ALS

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Weekly Preview -

Chan­nel 10, Sun­day, 7.45pm ★★★★ My Kitchen Rules is on the boil in rat­ings terms, but true foodies are hav­ing none of it. In­stead, their imag­i­na­tion has been cap­tured by Marco Pierre White and the cra­vat king, Matt Pre­ston, who it must be said are both look­ing very well fed by this, the sea­son fi­nale. This se­ries has come off the highs of the reg­u­lar Masterchef for­mat, but what it lacks in rat­ings it has made up for with the heady mix of as­pi­ra­tional food (funny that, a cook­ing show about the food) and the in­tox­i­cat­ing charm of White. It’s in­ter­est­ing to note that, in the lead-up to the show’s pre­miere, White was be­ing pro­moted as some kind of vil­lain. Sure, he may have been a tyrant in the kitchen in the past, but that is not the White who turned up for Masterchef: The Pro­fes­sion­als. Just who wins the ti­tle has been un­der wraps for months, but as they were promised from the be­gin­ning, ev­ery pro­fes­sional chef has left the com­pe­ti­tion bet­ter for the ex­pe­ri­ence, as has the au­di­ence which stuck by the show. It’s just a pity a big­ger au­di­ence hasn’t sup­ported it.
