MasterChef Australia is back for it's 11th season, set to introduce us to a new batch of daring amateur cooks.
The 24 new passionate and wildly talented (so talented they'll make us all feel completely inadequate as we sit on the couch with a bowl of spaghetti) home cooks will don the iconic white apron.
Matt Preston, Gary Mehigan and George Calombaris are back, to encourage, guide and, of course, judge the cooks.
