After two hit seasons, MasterChef Canada is back to give a new batch of home cooks a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Esteemed judges Michael Bonacini (O&B restaurant empire), Alvin Leung (Bo Innovation in Hong Kong), and Claudio Aprile (Origin Restaurants) return to guide and mentor the home cooks through a grueling series of Mystery Box, Pressure Test, and Team Challenges. The home cooks demonstrate their skill and passion for the chance to win $100,000 and the title of Canada’s next MasterChef.
Following a cross-Canada search with thousands of applicants, 40 of the best home cooks are invited to Toronto to present their signature dishes to the MasterChef Canada judges. To receive a coveted MasterChef Canada apron, the home cooks need a ‘yes’ from each judge making it harder than ever to make it into the Top 14. If a home cook receives ‘no’s’ from all three judges they will be heading home, while those who get at least one ‘yes’ will be given the opportunity to cook again – earning a second chance at a White Apron and a place in the Top 14.
Each week the home cooks will fight for survival – facing a series of Mystery Box, Pressure Test, and Team Challenges. Designed to test their creativity, knowledge, passion and skill, these culinary challenges will push them to their limits. At the end of each episode one home cook is eliminated until there are only two left vying for the life-changing MasterChef Canada title.
MasterChef Canada premieres 6 March, Mondays – Fridays at 8pm only on Lifetime (Astro Ch 709).
