She is also a contemporary country cook who champions the use of local Australian produce and aims to encourage others to ‘Use what’s on your doorstep, share what’s on your table’. Having watched the two previous seasons of Masterchef Australia, Kate entered the 2011 series as she saw it as a wonderful opportunity to increase her knowledge, skill and love of cooking. Since winning the series Kate has released her cookbook, has a regular Country Cook column in MasterChef Magazine, cooks regularly with local chefs and is a popular personality at food festivals and corporate events nationally.
