It is now confirmed that former editor of Cosmopolitan Magazine Sarah Wilson will be the host of Channel Ten new show Masterchef Australia. This is a bold, but exciting move by Channel Ten, see previous post here regarding her appointment.
The show is definitely generating interest as 7000 people have applied to be on the show.
But Sydney chefs will be in a tizz now it has been revealed that two Melbourne chefs, George Colombaris and Gary Mehigan will be the judge/mentors. Colombaris owns The Press Club, and Mehigan owns the Fenix and Maribyrnong Boathouse. Does this mean Melbourne chefs are better cooks or are they just more telegenic?
The food critic role is yet to be cast.
Masterchef is certainly ensuring that has been presenters and celebrity chefs are not getting a look in. This is a positive thing.
