Andy Allen is an Australian television cook, notable for winning the fourth season of MasterChef Australia in THE CURIOUS CHEF OFFICIAL SITE when he became the youngest winner of Masterchef Australia Series 4, in mate Ben and sharing all the learnings on his YouTube channel, Andy Allen Cooks. Along with his friend and fellow MasterChef alum Ben Milbourne (of Ben's Menu and Food Lab by Ben Milbourne), Andy took off on a global. IT'S been three years since Andy Allen and Ben Milbourne lit up our screens in series four of MasterChef. So how do they feel now the show is.
Both groups were working brilliantly at their work stations but with time ticking away at the speed of light, the pressure began to mount.

Get a move on! The show's judges, Matt Preston, George Calombaris and Gary Mehigan stalked the kitchen ahead of service With seconds left on the clock before service, the kitchen was mayhem but the food looked mouth-watering. As the teams were bombarded with hungry guests, the judges looked at the queue and concluded that there were definitely more than diners. Unfortunately for the amateur cooks, they couldn't keep up with the demand and there was a slight wait for some dishes.

The Red Team hit a hurdle when a guest brought back her chicken lunch because it was still raw. A few minutes later, the lady returns with her second serve of chicken and it too was raw. As the teams were bombarded with hungry guests, the judges looked at the queue and concluded that there were definitely more than diners Food poisoning anyone?
Not being a city slicker growing up, I have an existing connection with escaping and exploring whether that be by the ocean or in the outback. With the first series focused around the east coast of Australia, the obvious choice for us was to target the west.
From MasterChef to enduring bromance
At this stage, if we can raise the cash sooner rather than later, we will set out to shoot next Feb! How would you describe your personal style? In saying that, I always like to look my best. Name the one item that you will never leave home without? I wear a Birkie kitchen shoe to work.

A perfect Saturday for you would consist of…. Being in hospo, Saturday is our busiest day of the week.
Weekends in my town… What to do: What else is there?? We were outed as having a bromance pretty early on! Then it was all over social media.
That education and grounding you get from being on there for a year is priceless. Everything I do in my daily life is thanks to that, and it even has a credit to play in my wife and daughter. That led to us getting married once I left the show, and now we have a little girl. I think my inexperience helped me in a lot of ways. Not having a great cooking game, I was so prepared to learn and take on any information anyone was giving me.
So for me, with 23 other contestants and all the judges, all the guest chefs, I was just filling my brain with new knowledge all the time.

Honestly, the triumph for me was just really knowing that I wanted to work in the food industry. That was a massive win for me overall, whether I won in the end or not, because I realised what I wanted to do in life.
People in the food industry who have had anything to do with the show understand that you really do get good training and grounding and you work hard.Aussie Masterchef's Andy & Ben have an announcement to make...
People are realising that you can read a recipe for ten minutes, or you can watch it in two minutes online and see it step by step. Andy and I have continued working together, mostly on his YouTube channel, and are filming the next component of our new video here in Tassie soon.
We do a lot of YouTube videos together, travelling and cooking.
