The cookery hit, MasterChef, is back in New Zealand following a six-year hiatus.
Screentime New Zealand, a Banijay company, and Discovery, have struck a deal with the support of Banijay Rights, which sees MasterChef NZ launch on Discovery’s Three in 2022.
Last on our screens in 2015, the global family favourite is set to take on a distinctive Kiwi taste with local amateur cooks keen to show the country they have what it takes in the kitchen.
Inspiring food lovers everywhere, MasterChef NZ has produced some of the most-loved kiwi chefs, and this season will be no different. From time-pressure challenges, to forgetting the key ingredient, this season will have you on the edge of your seat. Which regular kiwi will surpass the judges’ expectations in the food knowledge, cooking, plating and pairing arena and win the title of MasterChef New Zealand?
