They’ve impressed Australia with their culinary competence on the show, now the two finalists share their hopes for the future – along with their favourite recipes.
Isabella, who’s been described as an “adult chef in a little body”, now has
a legion of fans around the country. “Everyone wants me to cook for them,” she says. “I have a waiting list!”
But regardless of her success, some things will never change for Junior MasterChef’s Isabella. “I know I’m back in reality when my mum tells me to tidy up my room,” laughs the 12-year-old.
What Isabella still loves most is hanging out with her twin and best buddy Sofia, who also cooked her heart out on Junior MasterChef.
He’s the Tasmanian 12-year-old whose life has changed beyond his wildest dreams. Lately, Junior MasterChef’s Jack has had lots of practice at signing his autograph.
“The show’s changed things heaps,” grins the lively lad, who’s back home in Hobart. “Wherever I am now, people say ‘You’re Jack!’ Everyone recognises me.”
