Who will charm Oslo’s Maaemo restaurant?

This week, MasterChef: The Professionals’s three finalists have the daunting task to impress the founder of Oslo’s three-Michelin-star restaurant Maaemo.


The BAFTA-winning tv-series MasterChef: The Professionals, currently in its 9th series, is building up to a thrilling grand finale. In the penultimate episode, broadcast on Wednesday 21 December, the remaining chefs will battle it out at the prestigious Maaemo restaurant in Oslo.

The three ambitious finalists will get an extraordinary chance to work with the talent of Esben Holmboe Bang, the 32-year-old star chef and founder of Maaemo.

Following a masterclass with Esben, the competitors will have to demonstrate an understanding of his food philosophy – by creating a dish that will impress the founder himself, using ingredients like fermented plants, ants and edible flowers.

After receiving three Michelin stars within 15 months of the restaurant opening, Maaemo is not only a sensation in the Nordics but is considered to be one of the most groundbreaking restaurants in the world. We can’t wait to see what the finalists put on the table this week!
