The iconic and beloved series MasterChef Australia is set to return to TEN for its eighth season.
With a fresh group of home cooks eager to tackle challenges that will see one of them take home the title of Australia’s next MasterChef, these are ordinary Australians who will do extraordinary things for the love of food.
As chefs, Gary Mehigan and George Calombaris are relishing the chance to mentor these high-calibre cooks, pushing them to better their best dish each time they tie their apron strings.
Renowned food critic and fellow judge Matt Preston will motivate, educate and stimulate the contestants to harness their skill and creativity to continually raise the bar. Celebrated chef Shannon Bennett returns as a guest mentor, guiding the home cooks through testing times.
Season eight of MasterChef Australia (the winner of the 2015 AACTA for Best Reality Television Series) also boasts some of Australia’s and the world’s best chefs including domestic goddess Nigella Lawson, Heston Blumenthal, Marco Pierre White, Curtis Stone, Maggie Beer, Kylie Kwong and Luke Nguyen, to name just a few.
With all these ingredients, it is a recipe that will take our contestants closer to achieving their food dreams and changing the course of their lives, as they compete to be Australia’s next MasterChef.
