‘Masterchef’ throws a spotlight on the ICE

Robert mair






On 7 December, BBC Two’s MasterChef: The Professionals served up a celebratory dinner to mark the ICE’s bicentenary.

The chefs created a three-course fine-dining menu for ICE President Lord Mair and other ICE guests at One Great George Street.

The episode included an interview with Lord Mair, discussing ICE’s 200th anniversary and the work of civil engineers.

Lord Mair said: “Civil engineers are often unsung heroes, working behind the scenes to make society better and safer. We often take for granted the benefits of modern life – from our energy supplies to sanitation to our ability to travel – and many people are unaware that civil engineering makes these things possible. MasterChef: The Professionals has given us a unique opportunity to shine a spotlight on our profession and introduce to a wide audience how we work to transform people’s quality of life and safeguard the future.

The ICE is featured in episode 15, part of Knockout Week, which is available on BBC iPlayer until 6 January 2018.
