Grubhub is launching MasterChef Table, a delivery-only virtual restaurant featuring recipes from MasterChef winners and fan favorites Kelsey Murphy, Dorian Hunter, Gerron Hurt, and Michael Silverstein. For 12 exciting seasons, Endemol Shine North America has produced MasterChef and captured America's attention by celebrating the best in culinary creations and now diners will have a chance to not only watch the series on Wednesday nights (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX, but also taste food from their favorite chef contestants, exclusively through Grubhub.
Available in more than 20 markets across the U.S., MasterChef Table features 11 gourmet dishes that embody American comfort foods expertly crafted by season 11 winner Kelsey Murphy, season 10 winner Dorian Hunter, season 9 winner Gerron Hurt and season 10 fan-favorite winner, Michael Silverstein.

"With MasterChef Table, Grubhub is giving me and a few of my favorite Chefs the special opportunity to share our unique twists on comfort foods with fans and diners all over the country."
"We're always looking for ways to deliver new experiences to diners. Our partnership with MasterChef gives them exactly that, a seat at the table in the comfort of their home," said Marnie Boyer, vice president of restaurant acquisition at Grubhub. "The MasterChef Table virtual restaurant adds more delectable food options to Grubhub's extensive lineup of eateries and provides an additional revenue stream to our restaurant partners."
