Eatwith, the world’s largest community for authentic culinary experiences with locals, and Endemol Shine North America, a Banijay company, the producers of the hit culinary competition series MASTERCHEF, announced they are extending their partnership with all-new, live, online cooking classes hosted by MASTERCHEF contestants from past seasons.
Adding to the 400+ dining experiences booked to date, the new Eatwith MASTERCHEF virtual format will give fans and home cooks alike a unique opportunity to invite their favorite MASTERCHEF contestants into their kitchens for an interactive, one-on-one cooking session. Participants will get a chance to learn how to cook signature dishes, master exciting new culinary skills and techniques, hear insider stories and more from the comfort of their own homes.
“We are excited to refresh our partnership with Eatwith and MASTERCHEF in a brand-new way. We have enjoyed years of fun, in-person pop-up culinary events with contestants from the series, but given the current environment, we are thrilled that Eatwith is now able to offer these experiences virtually!,” said Amber Sheppo, SVP, Licensing, Endemol Shine North America. “This new online format allows fans across the country to continue to connect with their favorite MASTERCHEF contestant in a more intimate and personal way – learning directly from a real MASTERCHEF.”
“We are very excited about our partnership with MASTERCHEF to offer fans unique cooking classes with their favorite contestants through this original online format,” said Jean-Michel Petit, Co-founder and CEO of Eatwith. “We can’t wait for the contestants to share their signature recipes and cooking skills with Eatwith guests across the world.”
Beginning today, interested participants can sign up for an EatWith MASTERCHEF virtual cooking class hosted by past contestants across the country including:
- Bri Baker (Dallas, TX – Season 10)

Gift cards are also available to offer this year the gift of a special experience.
