Justine Schofield was one of the favourites when she first appeared on television as a MasterChef Australian contestant. Schofield has since become the host of her very own cooking show, Everyday Gourmet with Justine Schofield.
But when she’s not appearing on TV, Schofield runs her own catering business serving up food with a French flair, mainly influenced by her French mother and grandmother.
