The first season of the Croatian reality television series MasterChef Croatia began on 21 March 2011 and aired on Nova TV, concluding on 17 June 2011 when Šime Sušić was crowned the winner. The season was hosted by Jasna Nanut.
During the first two weeks, there were elimination rounds. Jury had to make a decision and choose the best 20.
The show was aired every week from Monday to Friday. Every Monday, the contestants got a "kutija iznenađenja" (Mystery Box). In the box, candidates got a few ingredients and they had to make a dish from these ingredients. The best contestant was awarded by selecting the main ingredient for the "test kreativnosti" (Creativity Test), which was every Tuesday. Candidate, who was the best in the test of creativity, was given the opportunity to cook versus one of the masterchefs in Croatia. The duel between the candidate and the chef was every Thursday. The three worst candidates in the test of creativity were given a penalty; "stres test" (stress test). Candidate, who was the worst in the stress test was eliminated. Every Friday, candidates were divided into two teams. Every team had a leader. The jury selected the leaders. Teams were taken to the challenge. Team that lost had to face a new challenge in the form of an elimination test. Candidate who was the worse had to leave the show.
