A very affiliated and now solid jury, confirmed for the fourth consecutive year, ready to judge the creations of the chefs, to listen to their stories, to follow them challenge after challenge, up to electing the best chef.
Masterchef 2022: the episodes
Also this year the first two episodes of MasterChef Italia will feature the Live Cooking. These episodes will air on Sky Uno at 21:15 and will always be available to watch on demand on Sky Go and streaming on NOW. The Live Cooking events will provide aspiring chefs with the first opportunity to present themselves and their culinary philosophy to the judges, with the aim of impressing and winning over them.
The chefs will have a pantry available during this first phase to prepare their dish before finishing it in front of the three judges. With three “yes” you go directly to the Masterclass; with two you have to wear the gray apron and access the intermediate phase of the “challenges” to further challenge himself and try to get the three yeses.
Once formed, this year’s class will begin the traditional competition with the proven methodology, which will also have many new features. The competition will build on the contestants’ talent and creativity as they strive to become professional chefs. The episodes will be full of twists between Mystery Box, Invention Test, Pressure Test and the thrilling Skill Test; these challenges will see all the competitors, without exception, put themselves to the test episode after episode.

The iconic will also be organized external, or outdoor cooking challenges on artisanal dishes based on local ingredients and recipes, as well as a way for the contestants to live the experience of working in a real kitchen.
