According to columnist Flávio Ricco, from R7, Henrique tested positive for Covid-19 and had to be removed from the recordings of the “MasterChef +” selective. Even with the embezzlement, the program continues with the work schedule and the veteran has been replaced by guest chefs. Still according to the publication, Fogaça is doing well and has only mild symptoms.

“MasterChef+” is scheduled to debut in November this year. The program maintains the usual team and brings Ana Paula Padrão as presenter and Henrique Fogaça, Erick Jacquin and Helena Rizzo in the jury panel.


In an interview released by Band, Henrique Fogaça guarantees that he will maintain the essence in another year of “MasterChef”, but says he is “with the ruler a little higher”.

“With each passing year, we need to evolve and charge a little more. It is very important that the winner earns it. For that, my tip is that each participant pays close attention to our constructive criticism, in addition to giving their best. It is necessary to cook with the heart and with love because only then will there be no borders to reach the final“, he defined.
