MasterChef: The Professionals Season 15 Episode 1 release date is quite soon. This series, as you might have suggested by its name itself, serves in the form of a spinoff show to the original MasterChef version. Although, this creates and focuses on the chefs who are already in the professional culinary industry and working at some top-priority hotels.
The format of this series is quite simple. The camera focus on the stars of this reality TV series for about 7 weeks. This is when we get to have 25 episodes from November till Christmas, where we can learn a lot of new dishes for the upcoming parties at our houses. Now, there are various rounds and weeks in the show, and here is how it all happens.
The competition starts with a heated week. Here, we see six chefs in focus. As for the three chefs who are left, they are given a chance to perform at the quarter finale, which takes place at the end of that respective week.
The first round during this week is a skills test. The professional judges, who are chefs themselves or the winner from the previous seasons of the show, now demonstrate making a certain dish or cuisine of even an ingredient. The participants are thus given a time limit and all the necessary ingredients in order to replicate that item within a set period of time.

The second round is for the signature dish. Here, the participants are given a chance to prepare a meal or dish of their choice which showcases their talents, heritage, and taste. This is something that they are extremely good at. They are generally given an hour to prepare this dish. The judges now select three contestants out of the six for the next round.
This is now a time to have a quarter finale. The contestants here are provided with a definite set of ingredients. They are now required to make a dish on their own, most likely invent it actually.
The next round in the quarter is to cook for the critics. Instead of the judges, we see a panel of three restaurant critics coming over. The chefs will have to make a three-course meal for them. Later, the meal is then also tested by professional judges. After all these challenges, we see that one chef is eliminated based on their performance. The remainder of the chefs is then required to go through the knockout week.
The knockout week includes 8 to 10 chefs generally and starts with a Knowledge test. This is a tougher round and a unique take on the skills test. The judges again make a dish, but it is a very complicated one. The chefs will have to remember all the ingredients and techniques used in it and have to replicate the same. In order to confuse them, extra items are also given in the pantry or the table, and thus, their true culinary skills are tested.
