Just seen that this is starting on Monday 29th August at 8pm on Watch. Love this show so much! The British one is crap in comparison. DD and I watch this together every year - can't wait smile

Oooo thank you

Love that show!

Excellent! Thank you smile

Love Aus Masterchef. It's better than the BBC Masterchef by miles mainly as it doesn't have that absolute twat Gregg Wallace in it

Titsywoo Tue 16-Aug-16 12:51:18

I believe they are swapping Heston Blumenthal for Nigella this year too but keeping Marco Pierre White - not sure why they have so many British guest judges? Last year I found out who had won before I even started watching (stupid spoiler when googling the start date on UK tv) so was very careful not to open the wiki page this time grin

Thanks, love it!

Titsywoo Tue 16-Aug-16 12:52:38

Urgh yes I hate Greg Wallace but John Torode isn't much better with the stupid way he eats (like he is a baby and his arm belongs to his mother and she is doing 'the aeroplane' to get him to eat his greens!).

Great. Looking forward to it.

Thanks for that, I love it, still watching MKR at the moment, better free up some space on the planner smile

Ellennora - same here! We are actually fairly caught up on MKR but I'm away for a few nights from Thursday and DH won't watch it without me so it will build up again.

Love Aus Masterchef. So much better than the uk one. I was in Aus last year and ate at a restaurant run by a finalist of the year before (Tracy Collins) and met her as she knew the friend who took me. Was so excited! And then went to Maggie Beer's place for coffee and cake. Her restaurant not her house! Bought a signed book and watched a cookery demo which unfortunately wasn't done by Maggie although she does sometimes do them.

You lucky thing CiderwithBuda, brilliant experience grin

I love Maggie Beers, she always seems so lovely and caring to everyone.

We have a thread for MKR but there might be spoilers sometimes, so have a look if you want when you are all caught up.

What's mkr? I'm just watching the American finale and they are both a bit crap. Glad I didn't watch this one.

Ohhh ... I've been fretting about catching this sone thank you OP 😀 It's definitely the best Masterchef series

Thank you thank you thank you!

Love MasterChef Australia!

Davros Sun 21-Aug-16 22:44:45

We've been waiting to find out the date so thank you.
Sorry folks, but I love UK MC, it's just different and one must remember that it's on the BBC so much smaller budget

Titsywoo Sun 28-Aug-16 20:03:40

Oops just seen that it starts at 7.30 tomorrow not 8!

Davros Sun 28-Aug-16 22:21:45

So looking forward to it.

FreeButtonBee Sun 28-Aug-16 22:31:41

I ADORE master chef Aus. It's the best and has seen me through 2 long long mat leaves. DH is now well into it too. Can't wait!

GrimDamnFanjo Mon 29-Aug-16 10:11:21

Love this! I spend every Summer avoiding spoilers. George and his mum, Matt and his cravats. So much better than our version.

Buscake Mon 29-Aug-16 10:15:56

Thank you for this thread OP! I have been waiting for it to come back but didn't want to google in case of spoilers. I know bbc masterchef is on a much smaller budget, but everything about aus masterchef is just better! So excited about this grin

StepAwayFromTheThesaurus Mon 29-Aug-16 10:22:58

DH and I saw them filming Australian masterchef on location (in the place they take the contestants to, I won't give away where) in April.

PurpleDaisies Mon 29-Aug-16 10:23:50

Checking in! My favourite to cooking programme by far...

PurpleDaisies Mon 29-Aug-16 10:24:12

TV not to.

PinkissimoAndPearls Mon 29-Aug-16 10:31:39

I'm so excited! My teenagers actually willingly come and sit with us to watch it. I buy Ben and Jerrys ice cream too. We even have a whatsapp family group set up to discuss it.

<thinks perhaps I have overshared>
