MasterChef Viewers Mock John Torode Over Pasta ‘Mistake’

MASTERCHEF viewers were very distracted by TV chef John Torode’s pronunciation of “pasta”.

The top seven home cooks from this week’s first round have returned to test their culinary minds and try to prove to judges John and Gregg Wallace that they have the potential to be the 2022 MasterChef champion.

But viewers were distracted by John’s pronunciation of “pasta.”

Taking to Twitter, viewers claimed he said it incorrectly.

One fan said, “The way John Torode says pasta never fails to bore me.”

Another wrote: “John, there is no ‘UH’ in PASTA.”

In the episode, the contestants took on two challenges designed to test both their creativity and their culinary repertoire.

The first was a market challenge, where the seven had to invent a dish on the spot for judges John and Gregg from a market full of ingredients including chicken thighs, rack of venison and whole John Dory .

The other six then embarked on their most demanding assignment yet: cooking a dish on a brief set from one of the nation’s toughest food critics, Jay Rayner.

Jay asked them to cook a dish with one of the most versatile ingredients in the world, rice.

Whether used in a savory or sweet dish, it should be the star ingredient, not just a side dish.

But it all became too much for contestant Thomas who collapsed after receiving praise for his yam rice dish his father was preparing.

Thomas had tears in his eyes when Jay commented, “I think you’ve made your old dad very proud here.”

John added: “It’s a soulful plate of food, and it comes from a great place, thank you.”

Thomas was the first to qualify for the quarter-finals.

MasterChef continues Friday at 8 p.m. on BBC One.
