Rohan impresses on Masterchef
Forth Valley College Chef Rohan Wadke took pride of place on BBC’s Masterchef the Professionals last night (16 November).
Rohan (35) impressed judges, including Greig Wallace, Marcus Wareing and Monica Galetti, with his culinary skills but just missed out on appearing in the next round of the competition.
During the first round, Judge Marcus Wareing described Rohan’s dish as ‘probably one of the best skills tests I’ve eaten on Masterchef’.
In time honoured tradition of the programme, Rohan’s place of work was featured heavily in his introduction with the Gallery Restaurant, Stirling Campus training kitchens and views up to the Wallace monument being shown in the episode.
After a career working for restaurants such the Cinamon Club in London and hotels such as The London Hilton, Grand Central Station in Glasgow and various Hyatt hotels in India, Rohan moved back to Glasgow with wife Mrunalini and three-year-old son Vihan last year. He joined FVC last summer and works three days at the Bistro at the Raploch Campus and two days at the Gallery Restaurant at the Stirling Campus.
“Masterchef offers a great opportunity for any chef in the UK to cook their best dishes and learn from that. It has been a great experience and I’m really proud of my work on the show.
“I really enjoy it here at the college and I would just like to thank all my colleagues and my Head of Department Diane Creed for their help, support and encouragement. I hope to pass on what I have learned on Masterchef to the next generation of chefs.”
