MasterChef returns for its twelfth season at the end of May! Titled MasterChef: Back to Win, this will be the cooking competition’s first All-Star iteration as the chefs competing have all been featured on MasterChef before and are considered to be some of the most talented and memorable chefs in the history of the competition.

The contestants will be vying for the coveted MasterChef title, a state-of-the-art kitchen from Viking, and a $250,000 dollar grand prize. They’ll do this through a series of challenges that have been described as the toughest the competition has seen. The chefs will also be held to a higher standard of culinary skill than in previous seasons.

This year’s challenges include feeding cowboys in Norco, California (also known as Horsetown USA), demonstrating range in preparing a vegan dish, making a meal for members of the Coast Guard, and the fan-favorite restaurant takeover challenge. The chefs will be taking over Wolfgang Puck’s Spago restaurant.

MasterChef fans are in for more than a treat with this new season. Here’s more on the All-Stars competition!
