Saransh Goila debuts on MasterChef Australia


Every food enthusiast in the world knows and loves the MasterChef series. It has so much to offer; from witnessing innovation and learning gourmet terms to watching new and interesting cooking techniques at the hands of chefs like Gary Mehigan, George Calombaris and Matt Preston who judge the show every year. Being featured on the show itself is a victory for the contestants, as the show helps in gaining so much exposure.

In a fun challenge for MasterChef Australia contestants, Mumbai boy and celebrity chef Saransh Goila is getting them to make his iconic Butter Chicken recipe. Saransh is a guest judge on the show as part of its 10 year anniversary special season. Saransh will be featured alongside culinary maestros like Gordon Ramsay, Alice Wright, Shui Ishizaka and Nigella Lawson.

When we asked him about his experience he said, MasterChef Australia makes you truly feel special! It’s one of the most beautifully shot food shows I’ve ever seen. It was an amazing opportunity to be there as a guest judge and a big enough platform to break a lot of myths and stereotypes about Indian food. When you see the show you’ll notice how difficult it is actually to cook a traditional Indian dish from scratch! How only by adding rich dairy or extra spice you can not make a perfect Indian dish! It requires good technique, a lot of skill, and of course enough love to balance the spices in the dish. We are making them do a very tricky Indian bread which neither of them could get perfectly right but the contestants are so talented that one of them does come close!

Saransh was born in Delhi and has over 10 years of experience in the culinary space.

The season premiered on May 7, 2018, in Australia and will air in India in September 2018. We’re so excited to watch our very own desi chef challenge the contestants to cook Indian food!
