Three more names have been put forward for a spot in the Masterchef kitchen this year.
Melbourne’s Marcus Cher and Queensland locals Georgia Barnes and James Bell are ready to cook under the watchful eye of esteemed judges Matt Preston, George Calombaris and Gary Mehigan.
Self-proclaimed geek Marcus Cher, 31, is the first to admit he needs all the technical toys to mastermind his meals in the kitchen. An award-winning industrial designer, Marcus likes to host ambitious dinner parties and craft extraordinary dishes. Could he be the next Heston Blumenthal?
Nutritionist by day and committed home cook by night, Brisbanite Georgia Barnes, 27, constantly has food on her mind. A fan of MasterChef Australia for many years, Georgia is stepping up to the hotplate, determined to make her mark on the competition. Serving up a simple salad, Georgia’s future is at the mercy of the humble egg.
James Bell, 23, is tired of being shackled to his desk job as a financial analyst. Hailing from rural Queensland, James serves up one of the most inventive dishes ever seen by the MasterChef Australia judges. His take on a simple French onion soup has Gary licking the bowl. Will his soup be enough to impress the judges?
We will find out if Jamie, Marcus or Georgia has what it takes to succeed when Masterchef returns soon to Ten.
