With Halloween just around the corner, it’s only natural that we’re thinking about sweet treats. All those lollies, all that chocolate, it’s enough to give anyone a sugar rush. But of course, with every sugar rush comes a crash — but not this time, because MasterChef: Dessert Masters is just around the corner, and finally, we know when the series will premiere.

Hosted by Melissa Leong and social media sensation Amaury Guichon, MasterChef: Dessert Masters sees 10 of Australia’s finest dessert chefs go head-to-head for the title of Dessert Master. Oh, and there’s a $100,000 on the line, as well, which is certainly nothing to sneeze at.

In a statement, Amaury Guichon said that he was “so happy” for the opportunity to join the show and experience Australia’s “unique pastry scene”.

“What I’ve experienced so far, I haven’t seen in a long time – a tight knit community of chefs who share great camaraderie, skill and passion for their craft,” he said. “This is a once in a lifetime cast of incredibly talented Australian pastry chefs and it is an honour to be judging them. Their creations are so good, I think the audience will want to lick the television screen!”

Unlike a regular season of MasterChef Australia, the Dessert Masters cast isn’t made up of hopeful home cooks looking to make a name for themselves in the MasterChef kitchen. Rather, these are already well-established names in the industry, so the stakes have never been higher. In fact, some of the competitors, like Kirsten Tibballs and Kay-Lene Tan even set challenges for the contestants on MasterChef Australia: Secrets and Surprises earlier this year!

“Our cast for Dessert Masters is a loaded-to-the-gills, top-of-the-pops, créme de la créme of Australia’s pastry industry,” Melissa Leong said. “I am beyond thrilled — and honoured — to be working with such brilliant, talented and generous people… but boy do I have my work cut out for me!”
