THE Spanish MasterChef programme which is shown on RTVE arrived in Palma where it recorded a spectacular outdoor test that aired on LA1 on April 13.
The shoot took place in one of the most emblematic environments of the island: the Parc de la Mar, where the Cathedral of Mallorca and the Paseo Marítimo de Palma converge.
Aspiring contestants were required to produce dishes with local products which should highlight aspects of Mallorcan gastronomy and the show featured two renowned chefs Maca de Castro and Santi Taura.
The regular judges Samantha Vallejo-Nágera, Jordi Cruz and Pepe Rodríguez, were present and all welcomed the opportunity to visit Palma again and to enjoy the food as well as the tranquil atmosphere.
MasterChef installed the kitchens in Palma following strict security controls, both in terms of those taking part and the location of the necessary facilities.
Rigorous Covid-19 prevention measures applied and the technical team, the contestants and the jury were subjected to rigorous health tests.
