I have had a real epiphany and it involves a revolution in my life were I now drink buckets of tea. I know it may sound strange but when I recently entered the Dilmah Real High tea competition with Auckland’s Waitakere estate and www.chefkevinblakeman.com I didn’t realise what was about to happen to me.

It was a three week turn-around from me treating tea as tea bag in, tea bag out, 2 sugars, milk and don’t even put anything other than English Breakfast tea near my cup to adjusting to “which flavour will I have” fruit, green, black and making sure I brew for the correct amount of time.

MasterChef interview: Christine Hobbs

Posted by: SoDlish 23/02/2010 @ 14:00

I've always wondered what it would be like to be on a show like MasterChef. While I'm not brave enough to go on a show like that myself, I am quite happy to talk to people who have!

I had a chat with Christine Hobbs, former MasterChef contestant.
