MasterChef Finalists head to Chiang Mai!


Tune into BBC1 at 9pm tonight to see what happened when MasterChef took their final four contestants to be tested to their limits in Thailand!

Take four British amateur chefs, drop them in a busy market in Chiang Mai, the heart of Northern Thailand and see if they can cater for hungry local residents… The phrase “Cooking doesn’t get tougher this!” springs to mind because of course, this could only happen on MasterChef!

Last night Eamonn narrowly missed out on a place in the final leaving Shelina, Andrew, Tom and Jay in the competition. The group will take part in 3 final challenges in Thailand which will see each of them run a Thai food stall at a market in Chiang Mai. Next the group travel to the Northern Thai mountains to learn cooking techniques influenced by both Burmese and Chinese cuisines which they must use to prepare a Northern Thai banquet for 50 invited guests at one of His Majesty the King’s Royal Project sites. As if that wasn’t enough their final challenge is to cater for Thai Royalty as they feed one of Thailand’s most revered Princes and his family.

Renowned Michelin starred chef, David Thompson of Nahm Restaurant in London, will guide the contestants throughout their challenges which are bound to prove the toughest they have faced all series. Who can do enough to impress and make it to the final? All shall be revealed in tonight’s penultimate episode and we can barely wait!

@Brian - The market is called Tanin Market. The address is Siriwattana Market, Chotana Road, Changpueak, Muang, Chiang Mai.


Do you know the name of the food market in Chaing Mai that the Masterchef contestants cooked in?
