I have followed a good number of Masterchef versions in the US, Australia and New Zealand. Heck, even here in the Philippines – both senior and junior editions. And now that the show will be coming up with a region-wide competition, things just got more interesting and worth looking forward to. Can you imagine a Filipino home cook winning the whole thing if ever? :-D
Here’s the e-mail sent to me by the show’s Casting Associate Producer:
MasterChef is commencing its inaugural Asia-wide search for talented cooks! We are looking for anyone who is 18 years old and above, passionate about food, bursting with personality, and relish a challenge like no other.
MasterChef is an international cookery series, is made in over 40 countries, and is aired in at least 200 territories. 2015 marks the first time this highly anticipated culinary competition is launched for an entire region, pitting cooks not only against each other in a country-wide search, but on a regional basis. This means that not only does the cook have to exemplify the best they can be on a national level, they will also need to pit all their skills and knowledge against candidates from all over the whole of Asia. The stakes just got a lot higher.
The competition is open to all home cooks, but does draw a line at professionals as it charts a journey of individuals who are now choosing to change their lives, to pursue food with a passion.
We imagine that you might know a number of great amateur cooks that will love this amazing opportunity, and hope that through your network, we can uncover some real gems. We are hoping that you will be happy to help us spread the word through your blog, or are there some recommendations that instantly popped into your head?
