Nine’s new cooking series SnackMasters has an airdate.
In Nine’s new cook-off competition, Snackmasters, we give Australia’s greatest chefs this formidable challenge: can you recreate the taste of the nation’s most loved snacks?
You’ll find out the answer after Snackmasters premieres Monday, November 29, at 7.30pm on Channel 9 and 9Now – a fun celebration of our love of famous chocolates and other delectable snackfoods.
The only things Aussies love more than eating out are their favourite snacks – like the taste explosion of Twisties, the perennial Christmas go-to gift, Cadbury’s Favourites, the summertime sensation of the Drumstick, and Australia’s own special burger, The Whopper.
Can you get so close to recreating these super treats that a jury of the people who actually make them by the million every day can’t tell them apart from the real thing? That’s the great Snackmasters challenge.
Australia is one of the world’s great snacking nations, munching from morning tea to the mid-arvo fix, to the late-night sweet treat. But just how our favourite snacks are created is a heavily guarded secret, wrapped in mystique. Finally, in Snackmasters, Australia will be given a front-row seat so see how they’re made with a cooking challenge like no other.
Join hosts Scott Pickett and Poh Ling Yeow(MasterChef Australia) as they put highly awarded chefs at the top of their game in a head-to-head battle to replicate famous Aussie snacks, plating up for an exacting jury from the snack-making factory itself.
Meanwhile, viewers will get a sneak peek onto the factory floor to see how their scrumptious treats are meticulously made as our Food Detective, Yvie Jones, ex-Goggleboxer and committed sweet tooth, journeys deep within these factories to find the secrets that go into the creation of Australia’s favourite snacks and see where our chefs are getting it wrong – and right.
In each episode, two of the very best fine-dining chefs enter the Snack Arena in a cook-off battle to make perfect replicas of a hugely popular national snack. They’ll then be judged by the factory workers who make that same snack and know every inch of their product.
The chef whose recipe is judged closest to the original throughout the series will retain a hard-earned reputation and take home the coveted Snack Trophy as Australia’s true Snackmaster.
This new four-part special event series will have all of Australia asking if our kitchen whizzes can pull it off and crack the elusive creation of the magic snack.
