My Kitchen Rules is so close that we can almost taste it!

Get ready to drool over food envy as everyday cooks prove that their kitchen rules.

After Sydney couple Janelle and Monzir won last year, preparing 100 plates of food in a four-course meal in the grand finale…

We can only imagine what this year’s grand final will be like!

Especially since 2023’s winner was only a couple of points apart from runners-up Kate and Mary.

We can’t wait to hear what foodie advice Manu is giving.

Grab the popcorn, as a little birdy told us that mother and son fight like cats and dogs (who love each other).

The question is, will their banter spice up the kitchen or burn their food…

Which they then have to serve up to esteemed MKR judges for 2023: Manu Feildel, Colin Fassnidge, and Nigella Lawson.

Or will the mother and son duo crash and burn before they get a chance to prove themselves to the judges?

Sonia and Marcus may be based in the beautiful city of Adelaide, but their roots will always be in the food capital of the world, Italy.

We’re already excited to go travelling as they guide us through the delicious Italian food they dish up!

Who needs an expensive plane ticket to experience good food when you could just learn multicultural recipes from MKR?

Get ready for this family to grab your attention, as we are told they’re loud, passionate, and sure to entertain in and out of the kitchen!

Just be careful not to get bitten, as Sonia often gets outraged by the mess Marcus the ‘tornado’ leaves behind… in response, Marcus doesn’t listen to her, annoyed at his mum’s ‘kitchen-perfect’ perfectionism…

Which you can imagine doesn’t go well for either in the kitchen or for the innocent cuisine.

“If they (the judges and the guest teams) could see what was going on, they would think they were at the circus,” Sonia says while juggling cooking and her son.
