More than 70,000 aspiring chefs applied to take part in this edition of ‘MasterChef’ but only the top 50 made it through and they’ll be fighting tooth and nail for a place in the final and that coveted ‘MasterChef’ apron.
Tuesday’s episode was filmed in Parc de la Mar against the stunning backdrop of Palma Cathedral, using produce from Mallorca.
While the chefs sweat it out and try to keep stress to a minimum as the minutes tick by, Michelin Star Chefs, Maca de Castro and Santi Taura will be keeping a close eye on their progress in the kitchen.
