It’s been 7 years since South Africa had its very own version of MasterChef, when Roxi Wardman of Durban took the coveted title at the Sandton Convention Centre. Entries have opened for Season 4 of MasterChef South Africa to home cooks who are passionate about food and available to take the 6-week dive into the MasterChef kitchen from October to November 2021.


Within the current landscape of the COVID-19 virus, we wanted to give our audience something familiar and comforting that felt like home. MasterChef SA was the perfect choice as both the local and International versions have proven that the format is a firm favourite with our viewers. It’s heart-warming and welcoming content.
