Quiz: How far would you actually get as a contestant on MasterChef?

I make a mean pasta bake, it has to be said


Celebrity MasterChef is back on our screens and two classic seasons of MasterChef UK have just been added to Netflix. Novice home chefs of the nation: it is your time to shine. So if you’ve ever watched MasterChef and wondered how you would fare as a contestant, this quiz is about to tell you.

Would you nail every single dish and challenge and end up with the trophy in hand and Greg and John’s jaws on the floor? Or would you stumble around the kitchen adding every ingredient in sight into a pan and adding a red wine jus at the end because it sounds fancy? Do you know the secret to a perfectly risen soufflé or do your dinner guests end up grabbing a pizza on the way home from your dinner parties?

Take this quiz to see how good you would really be as a contestant on MasterChef:
