What Wyn Did Next

Northern Beaches Masterchef contestant Wyn Davies was knocked from the competition last Friday after her dish,  meant to reflect the saying ‘cool as a cucumber’, met a luke warm reception.

Wyn, who lives in Manly but is currently with her family in Victoria, says she hasn’t left the competition with dampened spirits.

We chatted this week and she was brimming with enthusiasm for the future. “I’m gonna get some work experience in a professional kitchen,” she said excitedly.

 “I think I need to be more open minded and learn things from different people and get more ideas and this will help me in my cooking as well.”

Her plan now is to focus her attention on ‘A Dash of Wyn’, her grazing board company.

She is also focusing on her blog to create recipe content so she can get more of her recipes out there.

When asked if she would do anything differently in the elimination challenge if given the chance again, Wyn said: “Yeah definitely, I would have picked a different saying. ‘Proof in the pudding’ would have been a safer bet. I always do desserts and wanted to branch out and do something different. I’m not sure why I chose elimination night to do that.”

Wyn won’t be returning home to the Beaches for a little while. “I’m gonna stay in Melbourne and get a bit more work experience here”. Wyn is living with family on the Mornington Peninsula where she says there’s no shortage of foodie places to go.

After leaving Masterchef, Wyn needed a brief hiatus from the kitchen. Finally though, she says she’s in the mood to cook again. “I had a moment after the elimination where I didn’t want to be in the kitchen at all!”

Wyn would encourage anyone who has the passion for cooking to sign up for the Network Ten show. I never thought in a million years I’d get selected and it has been one of the best experiences of my life.”
