Earlier this year I popped over to Amsterdam for a few days. Now some of you might have been thinking I was off on my jollies, but actually I was busy filming for Dutch Masterchef! Not as a contestant, thankfully, but as a guest judge.
As you can see, the set-up is much the same as it is in the UK and elsewhere, including the somewhat iconic Masterchef M hanging above the contestants while they cook!
You might be wondering why on earth is she posting a picture of a first aid kit…well, believe it or not, this got A LOT of use! Plenty of cut fingers to add to the drama throughout the day, the contestants’ nerves were palpable so it’s hardly surprising really.
The lunch I had from the staff canteen consisted of soup, bread, a slice of cheese and a yoghurt – it’s pretty basic really, which is not what you’d think to see on a Masterchef set. Although I did get to eat more adventurous dishes from the contestants during judging…you’ll have to tune in to see what happened!
The episode will be shown on Friday 10th of April at 6.30pm on SBS6 in the Netherlands – don’t miss it!
