Masterchef New Zealand is serving up some surprises this season

Masterchef New Zealand is serving up a five-star series this season, with the country’s fine dining lavishness out in full force.

Prestigious culinary heavyweights have signed up as guest judges this year, including Michel Louws from Huka Lodge in Taupo and Terry Louwe from Black Barn and Elephant Hill in the Hawkes Bay.

The series three contestants will be living a life of luxury in a $9 million mansion in Auckland.

But they will not be short on challenges, with a task aboard a New Zealand Navy frigate that will take contestants thousands of kilometres from their comfort zones.

More than a thousand people, from late teens to the mid-60s applied to be in the third series of the show in the hope of being New Zealand’s Masterchef.

This year’s amateur chefs include students, mums, professional sportsmen, solicitors, nurses and cleaners with a passion and love for food and cooking.
