Catching Up With The Masterchefs.. Outside The Kitchen!

Now that I think about it, it’s pretty ironic. Watching Masterchef Australia religiously at 9 pm, while my own dinner burned to a crisp in the kitchen. Feeling their anxiety every time a cloche was lifted, revealing a complicated dish; dread while someone realizes their oven wasn’t on and there…
