Hawke's Bay features in Masterchef

This week’s episodes of Masterchef will feature Hawke’s Bay. Screening Tuesday 17th April at 7:30pm on Channel One, the main episode will show the ten remaining contestants take on culinary challenges around the region, culminating in the final cook off at Elephant Hill Winery.

The Masterclass episode set to screen Saturday 24th 7:30pm on Channel One was filmed at The River Room at Black Barn Retreats in the Tuki Tuki Valley and feature Terry Lowe, Head Chef from Black Barn Bistro.

Facilitated by Hawke’s Bay Tourism, the two episodes were filmed over 3 days last September.

A crew of 43 including ten contestants and judges Ray McVinnie, Simon Gault and Josh Emmet stayed exclusively at Black Barn Retreats. Filming was done onsite at Black Barn Retreats, The Farmers Market in Hastings and Elephant Hill Winery.

Annie Dundas, General Manager of Hawke’s Bay Tourism says “Showcasing Hawke’s Bay and its wonderful food and wine to such a targeted audience as the Masterchef viewers is a wonderful opportunity” It was a huge effort to get Masterchef here and to facilitate the filming for 3 days which would not have been possible without the amazing support of partners such as Black Barn, Elephant Hill, Food Hawke’s Bay and Farmers Market stallholders”

Local food producers were also involved by supplying their products to the wannabe chefs.

The debut episode of Masterchef Series Three set new viewing records with over 500 000 kiwis tuning in to watch.
