A new batch of home cooks step up to the stove in 2014 in what promises to be one of the most hotly contested series in My Kitchen Rules history.

Channel Seven has confirmed Season 5 of My Kitchen Rules will commence  Monday, January 27. The same night as The Block Fans Vs Favourites commences.

It’s state versus state as teams of two attempt to out-dine and out-wine each other to determine whose kitchen rules. Each team will take turns to transform an ordinary home into an instant restaurant for one pressure cooker night. They’ll plate up a three-course menu designed to impress the judges and their fellow contestants.

Manu Feildel and Pete Evans return to host and judge this ultimate home cooking battle. And, this year, they’re bringing some surprises to the table.

The MKR Food Truck, a massive red semi-trailer decked out with a state-of-the-art commercial kitchen, is just one of the twists the contestants won’t see coming.

It’s going to be one of the toughest challenges MKR contestants have ever faced. It’s going to push even the best cooks to breaking point.

In another competition first, the knives are out when select MKR teams form a jury to judge other team’s meals. The judge’s table will see the return of familiar faces. Guest judges include Colin Fassnidge Guy Grossi Karen Martini Liz Egan.

The top two teams will again battle it out in the grand final where they will present their ultimate dining menu to a full restaurant. With $250,000 in prize money on offer, it’s the ultimate battle to decide whose kitchen rules!
