This will undoubtedly see the show competing head to head with House Rules and The Voice for much of its current schedule (the latter is still unannounced).
Returning are Matt Preston, Gary Mehigan and George Calombaris with Kylie Kwong as guest mentor. This season also includes appearances by Maggie Beer, Nobu Matsuhisa, Darren Purchese, Frank Camorra and Marco Pierre White.
TEN has undertaken research this year to focus the show back onto the food and is claiming it has uncovered its best home cooks the show has ever featured.
MasterChef Australia returns to our screens with the best group of home cooks the competition has ever seen. Sharing an unrivalled passion for food, the contestants deliver some of the finest dishes in the program’s history. These are ordinary Australians who can do extraordinary things for the love of food.
As chefs, Gary and George 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 Sydney chef Kylie Kwong joins as a regular guest mentor this series, guiding the home cooks through testing times.
Season six also boasts some of Australia’s favourite chefs including Maggie Beer, Nobu Matsuhisa, Darren Purchese, Frank Camorra and Marco Pierre White, to name just a few.
With all these ingredients, it’s 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 the next Australian MasterChef.
Monday, May 5, at 7.30pm on TEN.
