Masterchef fans are getting a new range of cookbooks to prepare for the new season.
The three-part Masterchef Collectibles series will celebrate the joy of cooking and will be the ultimate resource for home cooks and lovers of great food and entertaining.
With iconic recipes from past and present contestants, guest chefs and tips and tricks from the masters themselves, MasterChef Collectibles will extend the reach of the world’s mostloved cooking show into kitchens across Australia, showing readers how to become their very own ultimate Masterchef.
Each cookbook in the series stays true to the MasterChef ethos of building on skills, techniques and knowledge.
Network Ten Chief Programming Officer, Beverley McGarvey, said: “MasterChef Australia is synonymous with creating some of the most talked about, and most sought after, dishes in Australia. The MasterChef Collectibles cookbook series is the perfect kitchen accompaniment to enable foodies and fans alike to bring quintessential MasterChef dishes to life.”
MasterChef Australia Executive Producer, Margie Bashfield, said: “MasterChef has changed the way we cook, eat and talk about food in the home, in schools and in fact all over Australia. We are excited that the MasterChef dishes our viewers fall in love with on screen will make their way into their homes. Ever since Adriano Zumbo’s Croquembouche in Series 1, viewers have aspired to extend their cooking skills in the home, and this new cookbook series enables them to do so.”
Gerry Reynolds, Publishing Director of Bauer Media, said: “Bauer Media is thrilled to be taking to market a whole new concept for Masterchef publishing. These three books encompass the very DNA of the series and are designed to be collectibles that the whole family can embrace. We are very proud to be evolving the Masterchef publishing offering with Shine Australia and Network Ten.”
The first cookbook, The Ultimate Home Cook, will be on sale 24th June 2013 with a cover price of $11.95. Cookbook 2, The Ultimate Entertainer, and Cookbook 3, The Ultimate Master Chef, will be published in the following months.
