Endemol Shine North America has partnered with the culinary experience community Eatwith to bring Masterchef contestant hosted events to US fans.
Under the deal, fan favourite winners and contestants from the current and past seasons are slated to host events in cities across the country including New York, Los Angeles and Detroit.
Initially launched in 2016, this marks the third year of the partnership between Eatwith and Endemol Shine North America. Building on events currently available, throughout this season of Masterchef, eliminated contestants will announce their Eatwith events following their show departure.
“We are very excited about our partnership with Masterchef to offer fans unique culinary experiences with their favourite contestants that they cannot get anywhere else,” said Jean-Michel Petit, co-founder and CEO of Eatwith.
‘We can’t wait for the contestants to share their creative menus with Eatwith guests across the country.”
Tamaya Pettewaye, senior vice president, brand and licensing partnerships, Endemol Shine North America, added: “Bringing Masterchef contestants’ passion for food into dining rooms across America is the ultimate fan experience.
‘As America’s most watched cooking competition show, fans and foodies alike are in for a delicious treat when they get to dine with their favourite contestants and experience the magic of Eatwith.”
Beyond the US, Eatwith brings people together through dinner parties, supper clubs, cooking classes and food tours in more than 130 countries.
