This is a new reality cooking show coming to Channel 7 later this year. To be hosted by Adriano Zumbo, the show is made by the team behind My Kitchen Rules. To be honest, I can't see Adriano as an exciting host, no doubt he's the king of desserts in Australia, but he doesn't have the extrovert personality required to be a host. As a judge, yes, but we will see what actually happened.
It is also just been announced that Rachel Khoo will join Adriano in this new show. Her short stint on MKR earlier this year must have lifted her reputation!

Will try to find updates on this show this weekend. Somehow after seeing the promos, I've slightly lost interest. It seems to be more on extravagant cake designs rather than making delicious desserts. Oh, how I missed the first season of The Great Australian Bake Off with Dan Lepard and Kerry Vincent!
Although I could not watch the new revamped version on Pay-TV, the new judges, Maggie Beer and Matt Moran did not exactly motivate my enthusiasm as I just feel they are the wrong choices... Big names, yes, but known exclusively for baking? Remembered when MasterChef started, all three judges were not exactly household names, but they fitted right in.
Very disappointed! Looks like they are going for style rather than taste of the dessert. The critiques are also very underwhelming. I wish they would at least do more explanations on techniques, and on taste/texture of the desserts. The show is supposed to make ones salivating over the desserts, but so far tonight's episode did nothing for me, and the wedding ads is driving me bonkers! And the Zumbo Test dessert looked revolting, even worse with the two alien-like creations from the bottom two!
Watched episode 2 last night, but not paying too much attention. So how long was the Zumbo Franken-Dessert test? 4-5 hours to make? Why bother? Just buy 5 different desserts and eat them together, faster, quicker and probably cheaper too, LOL...
