Pedro Pena Bastos, Chef of the Michelin-starred restaurant CURA at Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon, Noélia Jerónimo from Noélia in Tavira and Ricardo Costa from The Yeatman, in Gaia, were chosen to bring their knowledge and passion for food to MasterChef Portugal, which aims to give an opportunity to all of those who dream with a future in the gastronomic world.

Chef Pedro Pena Bastos says “it’s a privilege to be part of what remains the biggest culinary television show in the world, and which will certainly help us captivate more people to cook, not only at a professional level but also in their homes on a daily basis. It is incredible to see the motivation of people who found the light at the end of the tunnel in the kitchen. It's good to be able to support those who are so eager to learn more. RTP viewers can expect a show full of life, smiles and great challenges for the contestants, heaps of emotions and a spectacular jury alongside Chef Ricardo Costa and Chef Noélia.”

“The show is, of course, an excellent way to get to know Chef Pedro Pena Bastos better outside of CURA, and right now, the entire staff of the Hotel is looking forward to seeing Pedro on the small screen!” adds Guilherme Costa, General Manager of the Hotel.

MasterChef Portugal new edition is set to premiere on November 26, 2022.
