In the final episode (Thursday, December 19) the winner of MasterChef: The Professionals 2019 was crowned.
The final three outstanding professionals, who had continued to stretch their abilities and surprise and dazzle the MasterChef judges with incredible plates of food, faced one last challenge - to cook the best three courses of their lives.
They returned for the last time to the MasterChef kitchen and spent three hours creating a starter, main and dessert that showcase their exceptional culinary abilities. In this moment, everything was laid bare for the judges, as their plates exposed how far they had come and the magic of their unique cookery.
They could not falter as they battled to display everything they had to offer - their talent for flavour and creativity, their ability to remain calm and controlled under immense pressure and to flawlessly deliver three plates of incredible food.
The reward was immeasurable, as their career could change forever when the winner of MasterChef: The Professionals 2019 is crowned champion.
