This season, the amateur cooks are treated to mentoring from Kylie Kwong, and guest appearances by the stars of Melbourne's restaurant scene: Andrew McConnell, Frank Camorra, Shannon Bennett, Teage Ezard, Darren Purchese, and international sensation Marco Pierre-White.

See the competition heat up in the kitchen at the Royal Melbourne Showgrounds and at foodie locations across Melbourne and regional Victoria.
