Tonight, at 10:10 p.m., La 1 broadcasts a new program of ‘MasterChef Celebrity’. Each aspirant receives a visit from a loved one, who becomes a pinche. The applicants see the final stretch closer and closer, so the jury tries to encourage them with messages from their loved ones. Later, the challenge they are proposed is to reinterpret the favorite dish of the person who sends the message, applying avant-garde techniques.
Subsequently, the Ritz-Carlton Abama resort in Tenerife hosts the outdoor test, where dishes by chefs Martín Berasategui, with 12 Michelin stars, and Ricardo Sanz, with one Michelin star, are reproduced. The best of the test become the first semifinalists of the edition.
Finally, the black aprons face the duels: an aspirant selects a bell and, after seeing the plate to be played, decides against who to duel. The best is saved from elimination, while the loser chooses a new bell and opponent. In addition, Japanese chef Hideki Matsuhisa, with a Michelin star, explains how to cook ramen.
