‘MasterChef’ Episode Guide (July 12): The Cooks Participate in a Skills Test

“Silenced By The Lambs” (07/12/17) – This week on “MasterChef,” the cooks take part in a challenging skills test, during which they must prepare racks of lamb with fine artistry. Those who fail to impress the judges will face an elimination challenge that includes recreating Gordon Ramsay’s signature lamb chop dish. It is then up to the judges to decide who will leave the kitchen in an all-new episode of “MasterChef” airing Wednesday, July 12 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Season Eight of the hit cooking competition series “MasterChef” premieres Wednesday, May 31 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. This season, award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay and renowned pastry chef Christina Tosi will be joined by celebrated chef and restaurateur Aarón Sánchez on the judges’ panel, as they put the Top Forty contestants through a series of challenges and elimination rounds, in order to turn one home cook into a culinary master.

This season on “MasterChef,” the home cooks will learn how to prepare live crawfish, cook for and serve 50 VIP guests to celebrate Caesars Palace Las Vegas Hotel and Casino’s 50th anniversary and create a Nutella dish inspired by their childhood, as well as take on the infamous “MasterChef” tag team and restaurant takeover challenges. The winner will claim the title of “MasterChef,” a cookbook deal and the $250,000 grand prize.

“MasterChef” is produced by Endemol Shine North America and One Potato Two Potato, and is based on a format created by Franc Roddam and Endemol Shine. Robin Ashbrook, Elisabeth Murdoch, Eden Gaha, Georgie Hurford-Jones, Gordon Ramsay, Yasmin Shackleton, Patricia Llewellyn and Ben Adler serve as executive producers.
