in ordinary Aussie homes. MasterChef Australia celebrates these great
home cooks, whether it is a mum of three, a lawyer, a labourer or a
foodie who sees cooking as their hobby. It’s a show that unites
Australians of all backgrounds and from all walks of life through a
common love of food and the joy we all share breaking bread together” –
