Cooking with a MasterChef

An interactive cooking series with Brett McGregor

We have teamed up with NZ’s original MasterChef winner, Brett McGregor to take you on a monthly tour of your taste buds. Each episode will have a theme, and will take you through the featured recipes step-by-step so you can easily re-create them at home.

A week after each episode we'll also host a live 'Chat with the Chef' session with Brett. Tune in to these to ask any questions about the recipes, share top tips, or just chat all things food!

Whether you're a novice cook or know your way around the kitchen, there is something to inspire everyone to get cooking in this brand-new series.
