MasterChef Australia Season 6 winner, Brent Owens, has been in love with food for as long as he can remember.
A bobcat operator and tradesman, who also played Australian rules football, Owens rose the ranks to beat 23 other contestants in the competition.
It’s his first time in South Africa and he said he tried pap and Chakalaka, boerewors and biltong. He added that he liked biltong.
For him, food is the greatest glue between people, a cultural connector that is at the epicentre of every festival, occasion and event across the world.
After his win, he gave co-contestant Emelia Jackson $ 50,000 as part of their deal.
