Nurse among latest hopefuls on TV’s Masterchef

  • Comment

A ward sister from Hampshire is among the amateur cooks hoping to win this year’s Masterchef cookery competition.

The twelth series of the popular BBC cookery competition began on 23 March at 8pm.

Among those trying to impress judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace was Julie, a 51-year-old ward sister.

Asked why she wanted to be on the show, she said: “My family and friends have been saying for years I should go on Masterchef and I’ve always kept on putting it off. But I’ve got to the stage now where I thought, I’m not getting any younger – take the bullet and bite it and off I went.”

Julie, who works on an elderly care ward in Basingstoke, successfully got through the first round on Wednesday and will now feature in the quarter finals. “I did it, I got through, I’m so happy,” she said.

Julie cooked a pan fried seabass with crushed new potatoes and an olive oil vinaigrette, served with a chilli and tomato sauce, followed by a lemon tart with lemonchello cream on the side.
