I always loved watching the Masterchef series on Astro and I get super excited when Asians or even better Malaysians showcasing Malaysian food becomes one of the winners. Like when Emily Loo cooked Sarawak Laksa on Masterchef Australia 2014 and all the judges loved it so much, oh how we take for granted our beloved dish that can be found in nearly every hawker stall in Sarawak.
So the point is, Asians can cook, thus now there will be Masterchef Asia and we are calling for all the amateur cooks out there who has a passion for cooking and sharing your amazing dishes with the world.
Lifetime® presents MasterChef Asia – a 15-episode series which will feature three judges, to be named at a future date, alongside contestants selected from across Asia.
