We are excited to announce our wonderful sponsor, Cobram Estate, has arranged for our 2018 Celebrity Chef to be Sam Goodwin. Sam, a top 10 contestant from the latest series of Masterchef, is a local Ocean Grove lad. Sam’s unique coastal character, along with his trademark smile, and experimental approach to food made him a fan favourite on the 2017 series of MasterChef Australia.
Sam entered the MasterChef competition with a love of Asian street food and BBQ having been well versed in travel throughout South-East Asia, and well exposed to seafood having grown up by the ocean. Development on the show soon saw Sam became one of the most versatile cooks, with the judges lauding and loving his experimental dessert dishes.
Away from the kitchen Sam loves the outdoors & design. Having grown up on the Victorian coastline, surfing, fishing & outdoors photography were regular hobbies. He pursued studies and a short career in construction before applying for MasterChef. In the near future, Sam hopes to launch and grow a small food start-up, and long-term wants to own a community orientated café/restaurant.
