The documentary-style show relies on a unique theme per episode, crisp shots, and a great voice over – which serves to be entertaining as well as informative. Tune in to join the gastronomical journey of our diverse nation, one delicious episode at a time.

If you haven’t heard of this show, please let us know the name of the rock you are living under! It’s a must watch – not only for people who fancy themselves as cooks but for aam janta too! In this show, Top Australian chefs judge passionate home cooks via competitive culinary challenges (where competitive is an understatement) to develop their cooking skills and win the title of the best chef. The cooking challenges include making nutritional dishes, high protein snacks, foods meant for Michelin starred restaurants, gourmet desserts, and simple daily meals too. The competition is ruthless as people are sent home if they don’t perform which is always very sad. Fair warning: side effects of watching Masterchef Australia include suddenly wanting to practice the fine art of ‘plating’ even your dal chawal at home.
Peppered with stories of people who create flavour for a living, this show takes you on a gastronomical journey on the streets of Asia. From quick snacks like our beloved Pani puri in Delhi to soy-marinated crabs in Seoul, each episode uncovers a different yet equally delectable Asian cuisine. While food may be the soul of a place, street food is the very embodiment of that soul. It defines the zeitgeist of a city and gives it the flavour it’s known for. Oh, and just in case you thought there’s no glamour here – let us tell you a Michelin starred street food chef is part of the line up! How’s that for novelty?
