Masterchef episodes to showcase unique culinary gems in the Territory

Office of the Chief Minister

The Northern Territory’s amazing culinary delights are set to take centre stage following confirmation two Masterchef episodes featuring the Red Centre will go to air later this year.

Masterchef, which is one of the highest rating shows in Australia, kicked off this week and promises to showcase sensational cooking experiences in the Northern Territory.

Production is currently underway for episodes featuring Territory icons in Uluru and Simpson’s Gap with 60 cast and crew based in the Red Centre.

High profile judges Jock Zonfrillo, Melissa Leong and Andy Allen will touch down in the Red Centre as this year’s contestants put their incredible cooking skills to the test.

The upcoming episodes are set to showcase phenomenal dining experiences in the Northern Territory including an under the stars cooking challenge at Bruce Munro’s Field of Light.

Masterchef contestants will be further tested with a quintessentially Territorian bush food cooking experience featuring Raylene Brown from Kungkas Can Cook.

The Territory Labor Government helped secure these episodes with a partnership between Tourism NT and Tourism Australia.

Tourism NT will launch trade and digital media campaigns with holiday deals to coincide with these episodes going to air.

Quotes from Minister for Tourism and Hospitality Natasha Fyles:

“These Masterchef episodes will broadcast elite dining experiences in the Northern Territory to a national audience.

“Masterchef fans are hungry for food experiences which are a little bit different and that is exactly what they will find in the Northern Territory.

“We can’t wait to see these episodes to go to air and showcase the Northern Territory’s unique culinary assets.”
