As part of the “World Food Week” challenge, which kicks off on Sunday, Masterchef Australia will showcase Dubai and its diverse range of culinary experiences.
Qantas flew the MasterChef Australia production team to Dubai to participate in cooking challenges that included a traditional Arabian feast served to special guests at the majestic Al Waha Desert Camp and a three-course meal at the iconic Atlantis The Palm hotel, while Emirates Airlines carried contestants and crew to Paris for a unique Parisian master class.
“Through our partnership with Qantas and MasterChef Australia, we have been able to showcase the hospitality and service that Dubai, our hub, is globally renowned for,” said Boutros Boutros, Emirates’ senior vice president of corporate communications and marketing.
During the MasterClass in Paris episode, viewers will get an insight to the Emirates Airbus A380 aircraft, including its first class suites, onboard shower spas, onboard lounge and also the range of cuisine, not only in the aircraft but also in the First Class Lounge in Concourse A at Dubai Airport, the world's only dedicated and purpose-built A380 concourse.
MasterChef Australia judge Matt Preston said the Middle Eastern metropolis was a new and exciting destination for this year’s international challenge.
“Dubai provided a spectacular backdrop for the tough challenges of this year's international trip. What a journey for our contestants; from the tradition of the souk and cooking a desert feast to running a fine dining restaurant complete with an audience of 65,000 sea creatures. A most memorable time,” said Preston.
