Snack Masters

Snackmasters is a unique cooking contest hosted by Scott Pickett and Poh Ling Yeow (MasterChef Australia) where highly awarded chefs at the top of their game go head-to-head to perfectly replicate famous Aussie snacks.

The new series will have all of Australia asking can our top chefs crack the magic snack?

Each week the chefs will wrestle a selected snack into submission in their own kitchens, before entering the Snack Arena for a cook-off judged by the very factory workers who make the

snack every day. The chef whose recipe is closest to the original will take home the highly coveted Snack Trophy and bragging rights as a true Snack Master.

Yvie Jones , ex- Goggleboxer and self-confessed snack lover, journeys deep into our food factories to find the secrets that go into the creation of Australia’s favourite snacks and see where the chefs are getting it wrong – and right.

Featuring snacks like Twisties, Drumsticks, Whoppers and Cadbury Favourites, this is the only Aussie food show on prime-time TV where viewers know exactly how the finished results should taste, and whether our chefs have truly mastered our favourite snacks.

Snackmasters is based on the BAFTA-nominated UK program format and made by Warner Bros. International Television Production for the 9Network.

Weird they didn’t include Poh’s last name on the end cap above, but she’s well known enough to forgo one now I guess.

Missed opportunity for 10 to work with Poh or Yvie on some projects given their popularity and familiarity with viewers, both are great pick-up’s.

Here’s hoping a food format finally works for them.

No doubt Snack Masters will be a product integration/advertising goldmine. As per killy06, potentially a missed opportunity for Ten with both Poh & Yvie having previously been strong personalities for them.

While it’ll probably be on the main channel (post-Block?), the format sounds a bit lame for the main channel IMO. Almost like the type of thing you’d expect to see on 9Life.

Would be well suited as filler like Travel Guides I reckon…not a lot of episodes per season…the UK version becomes same old same very quickly…5 eps before Easter and 5 after The Block in the back end

Knowing what Nine is like with all of their ‘big-ticket’ franchises they’ll probably strip this to 3 nights a week at around 90 minutes per episode. Hope they resist that though and keep this show once a week, maybe even in an 8.30 slot behind something like The Block or Ninja Warrior.
