New MasterChef host Melissa Leong on food and hard work

Season 5, Ep. 8

When I interviewed Melissa Leong it was before the MasterChef announcement. Back then, I was excited about her upcoming Netflix fame.


There was so much to chat about with Melissa aka @fooderti on Instagram. The zig-zag of her career, two years living in Tasmania on a self-imposed sabbatical, writing cookbooks and hosting and judging on The Chefs’ Line on SBS and now, Netflix.


In this episode Melissa talks about the role of food in her Singaporean-Australian upbringing. We chat about the role of SBS in Australia, diversity and representation on the small screen. I also shamelessly crush on Melissa’s style.
