We loved watching Masterchef 2021 winner Justin Narayan create some spectacular dishes during the popular TV cooking competition. The fun-loving Youth Pastor from WA chats with Abs and David about his humorous, quirky side when he’s in the kitchen.
Justin Narayan might look up to chefs like Gaggan Anand and Gordon Ramsay, but he doesn’t need to look much further than his own family for inspiration. Being the first generation born in Australia, Justin’s Fijian and Indian heritage has always remained front and centre. His mum is among his biggest inspirations and Justin says she is hands-down the best cook he knows.
Having worked as a youth pastor to help create a fun and safe community for teenagers, Justin went out on a limb to chase his culinary dreams, resigning from his job to fully commit. He has also put his Masters’ studies and wedding on hold to try his luck in the MasterChef kitchen.
He chats with our presenters about his food passion, his love for God and his future plans that combine his faith and love for food.
