We've been drooling over their delicious creations through our TV screens for months, but now that the star cooks on MasterChef have officially wrapped up filming the Back To Win season, they've returned to their regular day jobs as professional chefs.
This is excellent news for MasterChef fans, because it means we finally get a chance to taste the amazing food these contestants cook up - and possibly get a chance to meet our favourite reality TV chefs IRL.
Almost all of the contestants on MasterChef this season work full time in the food and hospitality industries, either running their own cafes and restaurants, market stalls or online food businesses.
Now that they have re-entered the real world again post-filming, they've headed back to work at their respective day jobs.
With lockdown restrictions now lifted, it means their fans and fellow foodies can finally get their hands on some tasty treats created by these MasterChef stars themselves - and maybe catch a glimpse of these reality stars working hard behind-the-scenes in the kitchen.
So if you're itching to try some MasterChef-worthy food, keep on scrolling to find out where this season's contestants are selling their delicious creations right now.

Poh Ling Yeow: Jamface in Adelaide

MasterChef fan-favourite Poh runs a super popular food stall called Jamface at the Adelaide Farmer's Market in South Australia, on Sundays.
Rather than running a traditional fine dining restaurant, Poh calls this style of cooking "fun dining".
She serves up insanely delicious savoury and sweet treats, including Coq au Vin pies, mille-feuilles, lamingtons, tarts, cookies, and homemade goodies such as sauces, pickles, jam and delicious fresh coffee.

But thanks to Poh's growing fanbase, you'll want to make sure you get there early enough to nab one of her limited, handmade creations.
Recently, Poh has seen huge crowds forming outside her food stall - and she actually ran out of food during one market day in June.
"I'm so sorry I didn't have enough food and staff - the queue at #jamface was unprecedented and there wasn't so much as a crumb left to sell," Poh wrote on Instagram at the time, alongside a video showing how big the queue was. (You can watch the video at the top of this article).
"Thank you so much for your patience and kindness. There wasn't a single rude person in the queue even as the food choices shrank down to zero and only coffee was on offer. Your graciousness was felt and so appreciated by the team."
The Adelaide Farmer's Markets are open from 8.30am-13.20pm every Sunday at the Adelaide Showground on Rose Terrace, Wayville.
