A Trip Down the MasterChef Rabbit Hole!

Sydney, Australia

MasterChef; you’ve heard of it right?  You know that cooking/reality show where amateur cooks battle their way though many rounds/episodes of cooking tests until one is left standing at the end of 6 months.  It’s a great opportunity for people aspiring to make themselves know to the big bad world; it’s something I’ve wanted to try, so when the opportunity presented itself to enter I jumped in head first.
