That’s the best way to describe the outrageous property where Channel 7s new cooking show Plate of Origin was filmed.
The program kicked off on TV last night and not long after it started viewers were asking on social media where the show was shot.
News.com.au can reveal the massive property is in Dural, New South Wales.
“It’s like mini-Versailles,” Plate of Origin judge Matt Preston told news.com.au, comparing it to the former royal residence of France outside Paris. “It’s an amazing location – it’s just around the corner from the (Wild Pear) cafe that’s run by Larissa Takchi – the winner of MasterChef – so we were able to pop in there and pick up coffees and some very nice pastries from her.”
Plate of Origin debuted last night. The show sees 10 teams of two representing different countries competing to determine whose food is the best with the winning team pocketing $100,000.
The program received mixed reviews on social media with some claiming it was very similar to My Kitchen Rules.
Others took to social media to praise the show’s judges: Matt Preston, Gary Mehigan and Manu Feildel.
Plate of Origin continues tonight on Channel 7 at 7.30pm
