Kathmandu: Nepali chef Santosh Shah has been crowned the winner of BBC’s MasterChef: The Professionals Rematch.

The 34-year-old chef, who was dubbed the ‘people’s champion’ in last year’s series, wowed judges Marcus Wareing, Monica Galetti and Gregg Wallace with his Nepali cuisine, reported.

The new show welcomed former chefs, who appeared on the program prior, to compete for the Professionals crown.

Shah is the runner-up of the ‘MasterChef UK 2021.’

Reacting to his win Santosh said: “I was so delighted to be invited back into the MasterChef kitchen to cook again, and had so much fun being reunited with Bart, Philli and Jamie from the 2017 series.”

“And to go home with the trophy was the cherry on the top – a moment I’ll never forget! I am so proud to be able to showcase Nepali cuisine and continue my mission to put Nepali food firmly on the map.”
