Thanks to HarperCollins, MasterChef and Booktopia the first 100 customers to pre-order MasterChef Australia The Cookbook Series 3 from Booktopia will receive a special MasterChef timer. This will be the years biggest selling book so get in quickly and secure this cool memento of MasterChef 2011.

MasterChef Australia: The Cookbook – Volume 3

MasterChef has ignited the tastebuds of the nation. The new book gets behind the scenes of the show with your favourite contestants, and back to basics with ingredients and cooking techniques.

Organised in a week-by-week format, the new look cookbook allows you to take a trip back through the highs and lows of series 3 and flex your own culinary muscle with hundreds of fabulous MasterChef recipes from your favourite celebrity chefs and contestants.

Join Hayden, Michael, Dani, Sun, Billy and the rest of our jolly band of culinary heroes on their action-packed adventure from a farmer’s field in country Victoria to the farther-flung pastures of Central Park, New York City.

It’s one treat after another as you turn the pages of this tantalising cookbook – let “Dessert Queen” Billy show you how to create the perfect Swiss Roll or follow the gospel according to Hayden in the production of the perfect moules and frites. Let Kumar guide you through the essentials of a Sri Lankan curry and hold Mum Kate’s hand as she shows you the way of her elimination-evading apple pie and custard. Yum! If that’s not enough let the experts show you how: indulge in Nigella’s Red Velvet Cupcakes and George’s Mum’s authentic koupes, hummus and tzatziki.

      Hello Agatha,

      The Masterchef Australia Cookbook will be available from 1st December. It should get to you in Melbourne within days of that date. Certainly before the 8th December if you pre-order now.
      You may place your order here MasterChef Australia: The Cookbook click here

        Thank you John. I have placed an order just then. Could you please ensure that I have a speedy delivery for the book to arrive before 8 Dec as your terms and conditions state that items will leave your warehouse from 6 days, which is cutting it fine for my timeline.
        My other concern is that it is definitely Volume 3 as when finalising the purchase it does not indicate that it is Volume 3 that is on order. Can you confirm that I don’t have to worry on both counts otherwise I should cancel this order? Many thanks and please give an estimate of the weight of this cookbook.
