The cookery competition returns for its tenth year. Hundreds of people auditioned, and now sixty amateur cooks are through to battle it out over five weeks of heats, producing some of the most exceptional - as well as some of the most disastrous - food ever seen on the series. In this episode, the first six amateur cooks try to prove to judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace that they have the potential to be the tenth MasterChef champion. Firstly, in a new test, the contestants are asked to cook their calling card, a practiced dish that represents who they are as a cook and showcases their talent. They have just one hour to dazzle the judges with one plate of food that shows just what they can do. They then face the infamous invention test, choosing between two sealed boxes of ingredients, before two amateurs are sent home and the four remaining cooks must cook an impressive menu for some special guests from the show's past. At the end of this, John and Gregg will select two cooks to take the next step in the competition and go through to the first quarter-final.

The cookery competition continues its tenth series with the first quarter-final, and the four talented heat winners have no time to rest on their laurels as they fight for their place in the competition. First, they must prove their mettle in the fiendishly difficult palate and skills test. Chef John Torode cooks his jungle curry with coconut and lime rice, a dish made up of 18 different spices and herbs. Without seeing him prepare it, the amateurs are given just a few minutes to taste this dish before being asked to recreate it without a recipe, selecting from ingredients that may or may not belong in the dish. For their second challenge, the four must go head-to-head to cook their own show-stopping dish for John and Gregg, plus feared food critic William Sitwell, who tells them exactly what he thinks of their food. At the end of this quarter-final, only the best amateurs will go through to the next round and take another step closer to being crowned MasterChef champion 2014.

Audience Reviews for Masterchef: Season 10

  • Feb 06, 2020
    Normaly I do enjoy Master Chef the issue that I have with this season is that I completely understand that its season 10. However the expectation they have for these contestants is alittle much. They are still home cooks at the end of the day just like all the other competitors were in the last past seasons some excel while others fall. These people dont have degree in culinary if they did absolutely put them on that pedestal and expect bettet from them but they don't . Also the constant reminder them keep saying its season 10 it get repetitive after awhile. Other then that it was an ok season.

    Disappointed, season 10 was hyped as such a different season where the home cooks had to elevate their cooking to a higher standard all season yet at the end it was judge no different than seasons 1 thru 9 a home cook that cook home food wins??? What happened to the season 10 hype? Judging was a disappointment.

    Whomever is responsible for the little format changes in season 10, kudos to you! After season 9 I thought Master Chef was on it's way out. But this season's editing of the show has freshened up the whole competition. We get to see that the judges really are involved in the cooking process and we, the audience, don't have to be told "as you know, we've been tasting your dishes along the way." There are also some humanizing instanced that don't fall into the "special moment" category. Thanks for stepping it up guys. I mean, come on! It's season 10!

    Being a mad foodie from Australia and a fan of Masterchef Aus, I have been watching Season 10 Masterchef US with interest.... Not even in the same league....I know they were hoping to match it but the US show comes across more like it's one of Gordon's shows filled with bitter comments... where the Australian version is more constructive and supportive of young cooks striving to get into the "restaurant" world.... Gordon must go... find a happy helpful chef to replace him
