Introduction of Master Chef

PUBLISHED June 11, 2019

Public Service Media (PSM) has diligently worked on providing the youth of the country a platform to showcase their talents and move forward in life. As such ample youth-oriented opportunities have been presented through our various channels and programs.

One such international franchise is the Maldivian Idol, through which many youth were able to
showcase their vocal and music talent and were able to shine at home and abroad. The success of Maldivian Idol conducted by PSM, is proof the country can successfully handle well-known international franchise shows.

Currently PSM is aiming to host another popular international franchise show that has gained global reputation. Under efforts to reach a more diverse range, PSM is this time aiming to bring the cookery show "Master Chef", which is one of the most watched TV shows world-wide.

Tourism being the main source of income in the Maldives, ample effort is required to improve the hotel industry. At present a large percentage of the chefs in the tourist resorts are foreigners. This is also one reason why PSM has decided to introduce Master Chef in the Maldives, opening a window of employment to talented Maldivian chefs, as it is a profession opened to both men and women.

"MasterChef" is a show that celebrates great people who make great food. The show will give contestants the opportunity to develop their cooking skills while being encouraged, mentored and celebrated by the industry's best! If you are passionate about cooking, ready to boost your confidence in the kitchen, or thinking about a career as a professional chef, this is the perfect culinary cooking class series. This program can be a platform for those interested to seek their culinary confidence.

This competitive cooking show was created by Franc Roddam, and was first staged in the US in 2010. Since then 9 seasons of the series have been held across the world, and has become one of the widely watched shows in the world. The revived format is sold internationally by production company, Endemol Shine Group. PSM has now bought the format of the franchise and the production process is currently underway.

We have now opened opportunity for interested sponsors to come forward with their proposal as we have already started conducting meetings with sponsors.

Sponsors can send expression of interest to the email address,
