MasterChef Australia: May 13 / 14

In Victoria’s Goldfields region it's a visit to Bendigo Art Gallery’s “Paris: Impressions Of Life” exhibition, and a truffle restaurant near Ballarat.

MasterChef Australia will head to Victoria’s Goldfields region next Monday and Tuesday.

Judge Jean-Christophe Novelli said: “It was a privilege to visit Bendigo and Ballarat to film these special episodes of MasterChef Australia. I was mesmerised by the beautiful inland Australian scenery. I just wish I had spotted a kangaroo in the wild!”

In Monday’s episode, the MasterChef Australia judges will challenge our 17 remaining contestants to a French themed mystery box in Bendigo. Inspired by the Bendigo Art Gallery’s “Paris: Impressions Of Life” exhibition, the contestants will have 75 minutes to create a delectable dish, cooking at the Bendigo Town Hall.

The bottom four contestants from the mystery box will find themselves cooking in Tuesday’s elimination challenge, amongst the truffle orchards at Black Cat Truffles near Ballarat. Head chef, Liam Downes, will set a four-hour pressure test like we’ve never seen before, and ultimately it will be the end of the MasterChef Australia journey for one of our talented home-cooks.

Head Chef of Black Cat Truffles, Liam Downes, said: “It was an honour and a huge career highlight to host the MasterChef Australia team at Black Cat Truffles. It was a fantastic opportunity to showcase our farm and our amazing truffles. We really put the contestants through their paces.”

7:30pm Monday & Tuesday.
