Men or Women: Who makes better chef in Asia?

Do you find bliss in cooking for yourself and for others?
Are you always dreaming of fulfilling your culinary dream but are too afraid to leave the security offered by your desk job?
Can you spare eight weeks during the period between 1 April 2015 to 30 September 2015 in Singapore?
Do you think you have the skills, passion and most of all the desire to be crowned as Asia's first ever MasterChef?

If you are screaming YES! YES! YES! to all the above questions, here is your chance to prove yourself.

Lifetime Asia will be presenting MasterChef Asia (for the first time) - a 15-episode series, with three judges (unnamed thus far) and contestants from across Asia - Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, India, Vietnam, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau, South Korea, Myanmar, Brunei, Cambodia and Laos.

Casting is open from now until 5 March 2015 and all you need to do is submit a video of you in your kitchen showing off your cooking skills together with a picture of yourself to MasterChef Asia (snail mail entries are accepted too).

Bear in mind some simple requirements which you need to meet before sending in your entry:
  • you must be a resident of any the above mentioned countries
  • you must be 18 years and above
  • you have no prior professional or formal catering or culinary school qualifications over the last 10 years
  • you were not paid for your food preparation services 
  • you were not involved in any casual cooking demonstrations over the last 15 years
So go grab a friend to help set up (by that I mean clean up) your kitchen and help produce a short video (no longer than five minutes and must be in English) showcasing the real you and your relationship with food. You may also want to showoff your culinary skills, like pulling the longest teh-tarik while doing the moonwalk or your chopping skills to woo the casting team. Remember, your audition video is your only medium in securing a spot for yourself on this competition so give it your 110%!

...and stay tuned to find out who will be crowned as the MasterChef of Asia? Who do you think? A man or a woman, do tell.
