As Featured In

One of the UK’s most revered cooking competitions, MasterChef is famous for its intense culinary scrutiny and the rollercoaster of emotions that comes with eliminations and survivals. The annually contested cooking competition, which airs on BBC as a reality show/cooking competition, is designed to produce the UK’s best chef from tens of contestants. 

The show is divided into two categories (professional and amateur) and four versions to keep millions of viewers entertained while exploring the depths of contestants’ culinary skills. 

Beyond entertaining millions around the world, the competition also serves as the turning point in the careers and lives of winners and contestants. Needless to say that the show is not subtle in its over-the-top nature, with producers steadily focusing on the exaggeration of conflicts and backstories. But that’s part of what makes the show interesting. 

The chefs face a series of weekly culinary challenges that result in one or more contestants getting eliminated per episode until a few finalists and one winner emerges. Here’s an excerpt of the 2022 MasterChef finalists to celebrate their strength and resilience throughout the competition. 

MasterChef’s 2022 Finalists

As explained above, the competition features different categories. However, for this article, we’ll focus on just two:

  • MasterChef: The professionals
  • MasterChef UK.

MasterChef: The Professionals 2022 Finalists 

Charlie Jeffreys

London-based Charlie is presently a senior chef de partie at Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester, where he’s worked for several years. Although relatively young and humble, Charlie Jeffreys has worked up the ladder. He says his family and the chefs he worked with when he was a pot washer have guided his career to its current path. Jeffreys emerged as one of the top three finalists of MasterChef: The Professionals and is doing well for himself. 

Sagar Massey 

Sagar Massey is a self-driven chef who sees every meeting as an opportunity to learn new things. The Indian-born, Johnstone-based chef boasts a large bank of experience. He’s worked at the Isle of Eriska, Martin Wishart’s Loch Lomond, Rusacks St Andrews, and Mar Hall Hotel Bishopton. 

Today, he’s a senior sous chef at the Maroon Troon and a private chef for hire. Massey uses his passion for cooking to fuel his culinary exploits, and although he enjoys creating local and intercontinental dishes, he prefers cooking Indian cuisine. 

Nikita Pathakji

Derby chef Nikita Pathakji is a fearless chef whose culinary delights wowed the judges. She grew up in a close-knit family where food was an experience. Nikita started her culinary journey as an apprentice at the Lanesborough Hotel at 18. 

Since then, she’s worked with some Michelin Star establishments, including Claude Bosi. Her resilience and dedication to her craft won her the MasterChef 2022 trophy after an intense battle against 31 talented chefs. Pathakji is currently a junior sous chef at Kitchen W8. 

James Checkley 

James Checkley is from Tiverton in Devon. He’s of Angolan and Portuguese descent and admits he’s still learning the reins of the culinary niche. James says his passion came from watching his mother cook as a child. 

James, who gave up training to be an architect when working in a Portuguese restaurant, entered the competition to advance his culinary skills. He succeeded as he scaled through the stages to emerge as one of the finalists. James says he’s a do-or-die kind of person when it comes to work, and it has helped build his dedication to his craft. He works at The Galley Restaurant in Topsham as their head chef.

MasterChef UK 2022 Finalists

The amateur version of the 2022 competition plunged 45 cooks into an intense battle that lasted seven weeks. Meet the amazing chefs that emerged as finalists:

Eddie Scott

Eddie Scott emerged as the overall winner of the 2022 MasterChef UK amateur competition. The Beverley-born cook is also a marine pilot who served in the Merchant Navy. While flying will always be a passion, Chef Scott has fully transitioned to cooking. 

After the competition, Scott began working in the Gordon Ramsey three-star Michelin restaurant in London. The talented MasterChef champion reveals he draws inspiration from his love for classic French cuisines but occasionally surprises dinners with the addition of Indian culinary flavours.

Pookie Tredell

Beauty salon owner Pookie Tredell is a dynamic chef who loves to explore different recipes while cooking. Although her Chinese origin significantly influences her culinary skills, she still prides herself on her ability to prepare most intercontinental foods while throwing her unique style into the mix. 

She’s inspired by her desire to cook delicious, flavourful and visually appealing meals that’ll put a smile on people’s faces. With her improved culinary skills, Chef Pookie now participates in food demonstrations nationwide. 

Radha Kaushal-Bolland 

Law graduate Radha from Bradford has left her legal ambition to become the ‘Spicy Flexitarian’, the successful private dining service she launched that features some of her MasterChef creations. 

Chef Radha has since become a regular in food festivals and schools, where she intends to inspire the next generation with her cooking skills. She now works as a demi chef de partie at Goldsborough Hall, Knaresborough.
