So did you watch the MasterChef Finale last night! We certainly did! And in my educated opinion, yes the best person one!! I jumped on Team Julie (& Justine, just quietly she was robbed) quite a few weeks ago and was so excited when she won last night! I’m wondering now what I’m going to watch on TV. Maybe Dancing My Ass Off?! Or maybe not!
Anyway. So of course with anything like this there are always those people who want to be negative. Some comments that have been thrown around; Is Julie a MasterChef? No, she’s a MasterCook. My answer to that is; Look it’s a reality TV show and in 3 months time was anyone really expecting these people to come out as fully qualified Chef’s? No. I’m assuming it takes years, not months to train to become an actual Master Chef.
Could Julie work in a professional kitchen? Who knows. Maybe. Maybe not. At the end of the day, clearly this lady CAN cook and what she chooses to do now with her future is entirely up to her. I think her cookbook will be a huge success. Who knows, maybe I might even buy it! What the show did for cooking and food in Australia truly is fantastic as we hear of the stories from cooking schools about increased enrollments and from supermarkets having to order in the more ‘unusual ingredients’ as people try to create their own MasterChef dish at home.
So all in all, FINALLY, a great reality TV series, and as a cute celebrity chef said this morning on Sunrise, the real winner here is food!!
In case you missed it or want to experience the teary moment all over again, here’s the final announcement!
