Masterchef Australia To Hold A Live Stage Show

Well Top Chef has the tour truck, but Masterchef Australia is going one step further and will hold a live stage show combined with a Festival of Food.

In a nicely timed announcement with the new Junior Masterchef series commencing on 12 September they will  be hoping people will be feeling the Masterchef love again.

The festival will be see Masterchef judges Gary Mehigan, George Calombaris and Matt Preston will be joined by celebrity chefs and Masterchef contestants in a live masterclass/stage show at Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion.

The judges will host 12 shows over three days from December 10-13 all in front of an audience of 3000 people. This will make iron chef kitchen stadium look like a kitchen sink.

Tickets will be from $55, and will included access to the Festival of Cooking that will held over the same weekend in the Royal Hall of Industries. The Sunday Telegraph has the Royal Hall of Industries at Homebush, but don’t panic you are not going to have to drive across Sydney to access these two events,  it is actually in Hordern Pavillion precinct. I presume the journalist is not old enough to remember that the Sydney Show used to be in held there.

Matt Preston in the Sunday Telegraph says:

“George, Gary and I are really looking forward to getting hands-on with the visitors and giving them a real behind-the-scenes taste of the MasterChef experience they won’t get anywhere else.”

Interesting that on the official website there is a picture of Guillame Brahmi, I thought he had signed on to Seven as an Iron Chef. Does this mean Network Seven are allowing him at another channel’s event?

Will they do Pluto Pups in honour to the ex-Show location?
