This Week We Love: Masterchef

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at St. Andrews chapter.

If you haven’t been watching the new season of Masterchef on the BBC, what are you waiting for? It’s been a truly amazing season so far. The highlight for me was when one contestant got it so wrong that Gregg told John not to even taste it. 

I love watching it for inspiration, not that I can cook anywhere near their level. However, I wouldn’t say no to eating their food, and the contestants have inspired me to take a few more risks in the kitchen. I will not be wrapping plums in potato dough anytime soon though, as that’s what caused the aforementioned incident. 

The way the show is structured makes it great to watch as a revision break. There are built in stopping points in the format where you could pause and get back to essay writing or revision feeling more refreshed. 

It’s on iPlayer, and I suggest you get caught up ASAP!
