John Torode and Gregg Wallace are looking for the country's next star chef. Those who make it through to the quarter-final must prove their knowledge and passion for food. The heats have produced four exceptional cooks, but only one of them will make it through today to become a semi-finalist. Initially named Masterchef Goes Large, the series changed it's name to Masterchef in 2008.
Competition based series where amateur cooks progress through by successfully creating dishes that show off their technical skill and understanding of flavour. Guest judges include food critics and Mitchelin star chefs.
