Masterchef season is once again upon us, and this year we have our very own Manly girl, Wynona Davies competing for the $250,000 cash prize.
Wyn says her passion for food started from the age of three, when she would watch and help her mum cook.
“My mum is a great cook and always got me involved when I was little in the kitchen. We’ve always loved good food and eating out.”
This is Wyn’s second time applying for Masterchef. The first time she was unsuccessful but the failed attempt just made her hungrier to better her skills to try again two years later.
Wyn says she is going into this season of Masterchef with more extensive food knowledge and skills, she was unsuccessful last time she is thrown herself into culinary research.
A few quick questions with Wyn
What’s your biggest fear on the show? My biggest fear entering Masterchef is the time constraints as I normally enjoy spending the entire day in the kitchen.
Favourite local foodie place? Sunset Sabi in Manly is my go-to restaurant of choice and French restaurant Chez Maurice et Linda in Balgowlah It’s so good, it’s a really old school, hole in the wall type thing with the best food.
Favourite thing to make? I love to cook desserts where I can focus on making the dishes look beautiful, but I prefer to eat savoury foods.
Go to dish with just fifteen minutes to prepare? A grilled piece of fish with a mixed-grain and vegetable salad.
If successful she wants to continue to build her business, A dash of Wyn, where she blogs, creates recipes, and sells grazing boards. She would love to create her own cookbook too.
Masterchef Australia launched this week and runs Sunday-Thursday at 7.30pm on Channel 10.
