MY MARKET KITCHEN - MEET THE CHEFS
After coming in runner-up in season six of MasterChef Australia, Laura Sharrad (then Laura Cassai) took the skills and opportunity from the MasterChef kitchen and parlayed them into an enviable food career. After the show she worked as the pastry chef alongside Jock Zonfrillo at his acclaimed hatted restaurant Orana, before moving onto Andre’s Cucina for three years.
She spent time at the award-winning Hentley Farm in the Barossa Valley in 2018, before embarking on her own restaurant, Nido Bar and Pasta which she opened in Adelaide last year. The venture was a special one for the now 24-year-old, opening the space alongside her new husband and fellow chef Max Sharrad.
Mike Reid lives for food and cooking. Whether it’s in his restaurants in London or sharing his passion on television, Mike is continually planning his next meal or recipe. In March 2020, the relaunch of critically acclaimed BBC cooking show Ready, Steady, Cook hit the screens on BBC1. Mike starred alongside a new cast of chefs and UK’s favourite presenter, Rylan.
Meanwhile, in Australia, Mike has become a co-host of TEN’s Ten Minute Kitchen and My Market Kitchen, as well as a guest appearing alongside James Martin on Saturday Kitchen in the UK, and Justine Schofield on Everyday Gourmet & Diana Chan on Asia Unplated, here in Australia.
