Wednesday 17 April saw the launch of MasterChef, the TV Experience restaurant at the Millennium Marina Place in Dubai Marina. Based on the international hit television series restaurant will introduce a world-class dining experience to Dubai that will showcase the talents and recipes of MasterChef series contestants from many of the 60+ worldwide territories where the programme has been adapted. Internationally-acclaimed chef Margarita Vaamonde has been appointed to head the entire kitchen set-up and menu creation. In addition, contestants and champions from around the globe will share their stories and experiences with guests through signature dishes served during short-term residencies at the restaurant.
“MasterChef, the TV Experience” is a collaboration between Dubai-based F&B specialist The First Group and global content creator, producer and distributor, Endemol Shine Group. The teams worked with 30 winners across to create the initial menu for the restaurant.
Endemol Shine North America, the producers of the hit series, have partnered with publisher Clarkson Potter, a division of Penguin Random House to inspire a love of baking in the next generation of at-home junior chefs, with the release of the second MasterChef Junior cookbook, MasterChef Junior Bakes!
MasterChef Junior Bakes! will include a foreword written by MasterChef Junior U.S. judge Christina Tosi, the acclaimed chef, founder and owner of Milk Bar. The 100 recipes in MasterChef Junior Bakes! celebrate creativity, technique and deliciousness, embracing simple to sophisticated and sweet to savoury baked goods. Young bakers will learn how to cream butter for Vanilla Bean Sugar Cookies, shallow-fry dough for Glazed Jelly Doughnuts with Powdered Sugar, whip a silky chocolate ganache for German Chocolate Cupcakes with Ganache Filling and knead dough for cheesy Garlic Knots.
