TV Guide: Dessert Masters on 10 and 10 Play

Dessert Masters

Dessert Masters premieres on November 12 at 7:30 pm

10’s brand new series, Dessert Masters, will bring the after-dinner treat to the next level, with the best of the best competing to be named the first-ever master of desserts.

Dessert Masters premieres Sunday, November 12 at 7:30 pm on Channel 10 and 10 Play. 

Ten of Australia’s greatest pastry chefs, chocolate connoisseurs and baking experts arrive on to the show to make fantastical desserts and battle it out to become Australia’s first-ever Dessert Master.

While the show is a spinoff of MasterChef Australia, Dessert Masters differs from the amateur cook format, focusing on already established pastry chefs and their impeccable dessert techniques. 

With names such as Reynold Poernomo and Adriano Zumbo set to appear, judges Melissa Leong along with newcomer Amaury Guichon have got their work set out for them, although it’s arguable anyone would call it work.

While Leong is jumping over from MasterChef Australia, internationally renowned dessert chef Amaury Guichon is making his debut appearance as a judge. Known for his delicate sugar work and life-sized chocolate sculptures, Guichon is set to bring a fresh perspective to the world of the sweet tooth.

10’s MasterChef empire is set to introduce brand new judges in 2024 also, with Paramount already confirming that Dessert Masters will get a second season in 2024.

MasterChef Australia season 16 will see Andy Allen carry on Jock Zonfrillo’s legacy alongside three new judges: MasterChef alumnus Poh Ling Yeow, food critic and journalist Sofia Levin, and multi–Michelin Star award-winning chef, Jean-Christophe Novelli.

Andy said: “MasterChef Australia has been part of my life for over a decade. It gave me a pathway into the industry and led me to a career that I’m forever grateful for. After an extremely difficult year in 2023, and upon reflection, the decision to return to the series is not one I took lightly.

“But there is something special in the MasterChef Australia Kitchen, and it feels right to come back to work with the amazing production team, and to play my role in seeing the contestants do as I have done. 2024 will be the start of a new chapter, and it will be surreal – yet brilliant – to share this moment with my fellow judges, Poh, Sofia and Jean-Christophe.”
