MasterChef Cookbook Celebrates Street Food Phenomenon

Street food is a rapidly growing food trend that has excellent business potential. It is cheap, delicious, and appeals to our taste buds. The new MasterChef book takes inspiration from hugely successful pop-up restaurants, street food vans, and street food festivals that have proliferated worldwide. From burritos and hot dogs to pretzels, shrimp po’ boy, and pad thai, at least 2.5 billion people across the world eat street food every day.

MasterChef Australia took to Instagram and posted this pic to promote the book.

Street food uses fresh, local ingredients, and these ingredients help characterize different cultures and cuisines. The new MasterChef street food cookbook includes all types of street foods across different cultures. From affordable snack bites to more up-market gourmet dishes, the book encompasses a variety of delicious street food.

The Masterchef: Street Food of the World cookbook is a perfect herald to the upcoming Masterchef Australia season 9. Fans can rejoice in some delicious street food before MasterChef Australia season 9 kicks off. Try the delicious recipe below taken directly from the cookbook.

Recipe from “MasterChef: Street Food of the World”

Churros with Chocolate Sauce Recipe


  • 375 ml of self-raising flour
  • a pinch of salt
  • 600 ml of boiling water
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of vanilla extract
  • 150 g of caster sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of ground cinnamon

For the sauce:

  • 300 ml of milk
  • 100 g of milk chocolate, chopped
  • 100 g of dark chocolate, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of corn flour

Items required:

  • A piping bag fitted with a 1 cm star nozzle


In a big bowl, mix flour and salt. Add boiling water, olive oil, and vanilla extract. Beat thoroughly until it has a smooth consistency. Set aside for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare the sauce. Place a saucepan over medium heat and pour some milk into it. Take a tablespoon of warm milk and add it to the corn flour in a bowl. Mix it well.

Melt some chocolate and add to the cornflour mixture. Whisk until smooth. Be sure to keep the sauce warm. Then, stir sugar and cinnamon together and spread out on a tray.

Fill a piping bag with the dough. Heat the oil in a deep fryer at 350°F. Cut the end of the piping bag with scissors. Squeeze out the dough carefully into long strips (10 to 12 cm). Fry them until golden and crisp. Drain out oil nicely before rolling them in the cinnamon sugar mixture.

Serve the churros with the chocolate sauce.

While we are on the topic of MasterChef book, MasterChef Australia season 9 will begin soon.  And what’s new, is that MasterChef Australia goes international with season 9. Japan will play host to MasterChef Australia in a few of the episodes of season 9. The show’s judges, Matt Preston, George Calombaris and Gary Mehigan, are quite excited to see what the talented contestants can whip up with some exotic Japanese food ingredients.

MasterChef Australia released the first teaser of season 9 on social media on March 12, 2017. The judges are seen amazed and floored with the contestants’ creativity. The highlight of the teaser is a perfectly round golden ball. All three judges are shocked at its sight. If this has piqued your curiosity as well, then stay tuned for the next season of MasterChef Australia.
