“MasterChef Australia”: Alice Brings a Mix of East and West to the Kitchen
Since publishing this story, Network Ten has announced the death of MasterChef Australia judge, Jock Zonfrillo on April 30, 2023. MasterChef Australia Secrets and Surprises will now premiere on Sunday, May 7, with the full support of Zonfrillo’s family.
Attention all food lovers! “MasterChef Australia” is back with its 15th season titled “MasterChef: Secrets & Surprises” in 2023. This season guarantees to offer unexpected twists and turns in the kitchen, providing an exciting experience for your taste buds. The show will premiere on 10 and 10 Play. And the much-loved judges — Jock Zonfrillo, Andy Allen, and Melissa Leong — will make their return to the show.
The competition will be more challenging as a range of celebrity guest judges will make appearances, starting with international superstar chef Jamie Oliver who will introduce some high-pressure challenges over two episodes, making his first return to the show in over a decade.
With only 18 highly sought-after aprons available, the amateur cooks must bring their best culinary game to impress the judges and avoid elimination. The stakes are high, with a grand prize of $250,000.
Before the competition starts to heat up, let’s take a look at the list of chefs who will be competing this year.
Meet Alice Han, the 29-year-old economic researcher from New South Wales, who is ready to spice things up this season. Growing up in Sydney, Alice’s love for food was influenced by the mix of her parents’ emigration from Shanghai, China, and the East meets West language, culture, and cuisine.
But don’t be fooled by her academic background as Alice’s passion for cooking is fueled by the balance of the cerebral and the creative. With a keen eye for detail, Alice loves to explore traditional dishes and add her modern, fusion flair.
From Chinese to French and Italian cuisine, Alice’s skills span both sweet and savoury dishes.
