Served from its brand new home in Australia’s culinary capital of Melbourne, MasterChef 2013 promises a delicious new chapter in the life of the world’s most loved cooking show.
For the first time in MasterChef Australia history, the competition jumps straight into the Top 22 stage, with some of the best amateur cooks from across the country mixing it up in a high-pressure test of know-how and nerve.
A girls versus boys challenge at the iconic MCG kicks off a thrilling new year of challenges, with a Barossa valley boot camp and Italian week among the themed events on the table. And in another show first, this year’s weekly MasterClass is filmed before a live audience, giving the public a first-hand insight into the culinary handywork of returning judges Gary, George and Matt.
MasterChef’s veteran trio will be joined by a host of cooking luminaries, with guests such as Antonio Carluccio, Stephanie Alexander, Curtis Stone, Shannon Bennett, Maggie Beer and Guillaume Brahimi pushing the contestants to elevate their game and hit food heights they never imagined.
