Occupation: Film Projectionist
Before joining MasterChef Australia season 3, Michael Weldon was a film projectionist. After realising his true passion lied in cooking, he left that career behind to pursue his food dream.
Making it all the way to the end of the competition, he had a variety of dishes which landed in the hall of fame. Some of these dishes include Baked Apples and Pears with Berry Salad and Caramel Sauce, Salmon Tartare with Soft Boiled Quail Egg and Tapas of Lamb, Roasted Anchovy Lamb with Green Dressing.
"I think the fun times in my life are when I'm in the kitchen, cooking for myself or for others. It makes me really excited, it's my happy place, I guess."
Watch Michael recreate his signature dish, then head over to his Egg Yolk and Black Pudding Ravioli with Pea Puree and Parmesan Crisp recipe.
