Series background and information
MasterChef UK is the original show in the extensive international MasterChef franchise created by Franc Roddam, which has been on the air since 1990 with a break in 2001-2005.

Gregg Wallace and John Torode act as the series` judges. The series currently airs on BBC One, and its current installment premiered on March 23, 2016.
The revamped format consists of six weeks of heats and quarter finals, with six contestants emerging to contend for the coveted MasterChef title. Each part contains several rounds, such as The Ingredients Test, The Passion Test, The Choice Test, The Palate Test, and other challenges related to cooking and presenting the dishes, as well to more theoretical knowledge of food-related information. The cooks in the current series are less reliant on gadgets and out-of-the-ordinary ingredients than they were in the previous series.
