Seven Locks in Plate of Origin for Sundays

With Farmer Wants A Wife wrapping next week Seven has announced the launch date of its next reality series Plate of Origin.

Welcome to the World Cup of cooking and battle ground to determine whose food is the best on the planet. French or Italian; Greek or Lebanese; Indian or Chinese; Vietnamese or Venezuelan?

Ten teams from across Australia representing some of the greatest food nations will cook from their heart and heritage, transporting you around the globe through international dishes which excite and inspire to determine which cuisine will ultimately reign supreme.

With decades of expertise running some of the world’s best restaurants, judging iconic food competitions, and critiquing thousands of dishes, Manu, Matt, and Gary will commentate, coach and referee as teams plate up mouthwatering dishes, including food our judges have never seen before.

We’ll also see a different side to these iconic judges as the long-time mates share stories of their food inspired travels, savoured dishes and must-have ingredients – each trading the odd jibe along the way.

Serving up the flavours of the world in this spicy food fight, teams will cook side by side with two countries go head-to-head in each episode, armed with long-held family recipes and the pressure of generations to do their heritage justice. Teams will put every ounce into creating dishes to impress the judges and out class their competition.

Facing off in state-of-the-art kitchen in The Arena, a foodie’s paradise of gardens, orchards and greenhouses overflowing with pristine produce, the winning team will progress immediately to the next round. The losing team will face an elimination challenge.

After the first round, five teams will be closer to realising their food dream, and five teams face an uncertain future.

At the end of the competition, only one team will be left standing – The 2020 Plate of Origin Champions – with $100,000 in prize money and the knowledge that their cuisine reigns supreme. Let the flames begin!

7pm Sunday August 30 on Seven.
