Kishwar Chowdhury highlights her Bengali heritage in the newest trailer for the upcoming season of the famous show
Kishwar Chowdhury, a Bangladeshi from Melbourne, Australia is set to appear on the newest season of MasterChef Australia.
In conversation with the Huffington post, Kishwar revealed she comes from “a big family of cooks”, and is proud of using recipes from her loved ones to make her own versions of them in the kitchen.
“The Bengali cuisine that I carry with me has been passed down from generation to generation. I’ve always taken a little creative licence with it,” she says.
The newest season of the show is currently in production, and will adhere to health and safety guidelines due to the ongoing global pandemic.
“MasterChef Australia has always employed the highest standards of food safety and hygiene, and we now have an even keener focus on that. All recommendations outlined by Federal and State government health authorities are being followed,” producer Endemol Shine said in a statement to HuffPost Australia.
Social distancing and additional sanitizing are also a part of this year’s production process.
The fresh cast of MasterChef Australia brings diversity, ambition and culture to the famous show. “The amount of heart and soul and drive is exceptional this year,” judge Melissa Leong says in the trailer, while Andy Allen adds that “They all have a unique story.”
Judge Jock Zonfrillo also adds that this season will emphasize the diverse cast members just as much as the incredible dishes they create in the kitchen.
The release date for this season is yet to be announced by Channel 10 Australia.
