Masterchef Australia 3

Image 1 / 2

In Masterchef Australia, 50 contestants compete to be crowned champion, winning AUS$100,000, a culinary scholarship and a cookbook deal. Participants come from all walks of life and include a lifeguard, a fighter pilot and an orchestra musician. The gauntlet is thrown down to the contestants from the very first challenge on Sydney’s Cockatoo Island when a giant ‘mystery box’ of ingredients arrives suspended from a helicopter. Other high octane challenges see MasterChef travelling to the pit of the Sunrise Dam mine in the West Australian outback, two kilometres out to sea on the longest jetty in the Southern hemisphere in Busselton, plus heading to the vineyards of Margaret River. Rick Stein meets contestants for an amazing masterclass in Kuala Lumpur, and closer to home the contestants cook on the beautiful beaches of Cronulla. Throughout the series, top chefs including Heston Blumenthal, Nigella Lawson, and Maggie Beer meet the contestants to pass on some of their knowledge and assess their ability before just one is crowned Masterchef!
