Season two of My Kitchen Rules comes to TV2 May 23

The knives are out as Australia’s best home cooks battle it out once more in a brand-new season of My Kitchen Rules. 

It’s state versus state, plate against plate, as 12 teams take turns to transform an ordinary home kitchen into an instant restaurant for one pressure-cooker night.

This season will see some exciting challenges, a few surprises as well as appearances by guest judges as the contestants fight for the final $100,000 prize.

In the season premiere, Queensland’s butchers and good mates, Artie Vella and Johnny Brown, devise and prepare three-course meal.

The Sunshine Coasters told the show’s website they’ve been mates ever since Artie employed Johnny to work at his award-winning butcher shop, Nambour Plaza Meats, a few years ago.

Both men take pride in the food they prepare and the meat they sell but are keen to prove they’re more than just butchers.

“We’re out to show everyone we can cook and that we can dish up more than just meat,” Artie says.

The pair define their cooking style as relaxed and simple, and although they’re used to dishing up entrees and mains, dessert could be their downfall.

“I’m not a real dessert person,” Johnny says. “That’s where our weakness certainly lies.”

My Kitchen Rules is hosted by esteemed judges Pete Evans and Manu Feildel.
