MasterChef Australia Holiday Entertainment

My children love watching MasterChef Australia and I’m enjoying the unexpected side-effects of their MCA obsession. Not only are they fighting for the opportunity to help me cook, they are happily entertaining themselves playing MasterChef. With the help of a plastic picnic set, toy food and a few spare kitchen utensils, they have spent hours these holidays testing each other with mystery box challenges, invention tests and taste tests. The latter in particular can be quite tricky when using fake food, but they seem to manage.

I have been a guest judge on several occasions and I’ve even been tempted to find a scarf/cravat to lend myself the proper air of culinary discernment as I try to choose between the banana bread with ice-cream dipping sauce and the salad with fresh baked bread and tomato salsa.

Today the kids were obviously feeling artistic, as they happily occupied themselves making chalk drawings of the remaining contestants and the judges. My 6 year old son drew the pictures of Jimmy and Jonathan. My 9-year-old daughter drew the rest. What do you think?

(ETA: To avoid confusion, I should point out that Aaron is holding a bowl containing chicken drumsticks.)

    I love Masterchef! Although, I must admit the Aussie version is not as good as the original, British version. That said, I am still hooked and can’t believe Marion lost an elimination!

    I love how more people love to cook now because of cooking shows. So much easier to get obscure ingredients in the supermarket now!

    Fantastic! My guys go to bed at 7.30, so haven’t jumped on the juggernaut as yet, but somehow they still seem to know about Masterchef. I am still smarting over Marion’s elimination and now that Jonathan is gone, there are only two or three half decent cooks left. If only Claire could find a smile, she might crack the championship!

    So cute. My boys are in to it too. They would choose watching Masterchef over reading at night. If we let them. 😉 They can do a bit of both. 🙂

    I just love those drawings! I could probably have guessed who they all were, except for Aaron and his chicken drumsticks!
