Now in its 16th series, the battle to win the title of the UK’s best amateur cook is in full flow – read on to find out how to stream Masterchef 2020, no matter where in the world you are, by following our guide below.
With 60 initial contestants ranging from cattle farmers, hairdressers and architects, this latest incarnation of the culinary competition has already been one of the most fiercely contested.
John Torode and Gregg Wallace as ever are fronting proceedings, while the guests offering up their palates for the nerve-racking Critics Table challenge include William Sitwell, Grace Dent, Jay Rayner and Jimi Famurewa.
This year's hopefuls will be aiming to reach a final set of daunting culinary challenges that begin on the island of Mauritius where they will need to complete a gastronomic challenge of recreating both high-end local fine-dining dishes and traditional street food tutored by the islands top chefs.
Following that test, the remaining contestants return to London where they must impress Albert Adria – widely regarded as the world’s best pastry chef, before delivering the best three-course menu of their lives for John and Gregg, in the final bid to claim the prestigious Masterchef title.
The show has a decent track record of producing winners that have gone on to big things by opening up their very own restaurants and writing books, including 2019 champ Irini Tzortzoglou.
Knives and forks at the ready – its time to find out how to stream Masterchef 2020 online – no matter where in the world you are – with our guide below.
