Now down to just seven outstanding amateurs, the MasterChef semi-finals continue.

With a new assignment to prepare a dish that is “so wrong that it’s right,” they’ll have to think outside the box. A dish that, on paper, shouldn’t work but somehow does because of its unexpected combination of ingredients. When pushed, how far will they go, and will their gambles pay off? Those who come through will be invited to prepare meals for a famous chef. However, the MasterChef experience for two competitors will soon come to an end.

Five of the best in the business immediately jet off to London’s Francis Crick Institute. The institute is the largest biomedical laboratory in Europe, employing over 2,000 people. To better treat, diagnose, and prevent diseases like cancer, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s in humans, it conducts innovative research.

The 70th anniversary of the discovery of DNA is being celebrated this year, and the five remaining contestants must prepare a lunch worthy of the occasion. Acclaimed chef Jozef Youssef, who honed his craft in some of the world’s greatest Michelin kitchens, oversees their efforts. Together, they collaborate with artists and scientists to create dishes that provide diners with the ultimate multisensory experience. Each competitor will be put to the ultimate test as they attempt to recreate one of Josef’s technically challenging recipes.

The semi-finalists will need to be at their absolute best, as notable attendees include a knight of the realm and a Nobel Peace Prize winner.
