KARACHI: The world’s most loved reality show MasterChef was launched in Pakistan on Monday to give local amateur cooking enthusiasts a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make their mark.

The launch event for the reality show was held at a hotel where the three judges were introduced.

Khurram Awan of Movenpick Hotels and celebrity chefs Zakir Qureshi and Mehboob Khan will be judging the contestants on a variety of cuisines which will be prepared by them on the show.

The talent hunt to shortlist the candidates was held in Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad.

MasterChef Pakistan is set to go on air this May. The media briefing in this regard was hosted by Sidra Iqbal.

The High Commissioner of Australia, Peter Heyward, was the guest of honour on the occasion.

Earlier this year, Mr Heyward’s office was pivotal in bringing the most popular contestant of MasterChef Australia (season four), Amina Elshafei, to Pakistan for a well-received fusion cooking tour.
