He is the one who will guide the jurors as well as the surviving contestants, through the city during the Masterchef outdoor test.
7 contestants took part in Málaga and cooked a menu designed by the kitchen team of restaurant La Pergola del Mediterraneo, which were tasted by 60 personalities from the social and cultural life of Málaga.
