Winner of "MasterChef AllStars" and runner up "MasterChef Series 2" has thrown himself into a career in Food and educating others. His first book The Starter Kitchen has been a great success both in Australia and internationally, providing an uncluttered approach to understanding the basics of cooking. In 2014 he will follow up with another The Starter Kitchen 2 edition. In addition to running his own cooking school Sprout, Callum works with many local and regional organisations, companies and schools on team buildings and educational events and campaigns.
At the age of 19 Callum Hann wowed the Australian MasterChef Series 2 audience with his extensive knowledge and immense passion for cooking. Placing runner up in the series, he narrowly missed the winner’s title by a few points. As a ‘huge fan of eating’ his philosophy is simple, satisfying food. He remedied this is the 2012 series of Masterchef Allstars by taking out the title.
In his own words ‘I’m twenty-one, assuming I live to the ripe age of eighty-two, eating three meals a day, that’s 66,795 bad experiences I would have had if I didn’t know how to cook. And yes, I’m a bit of a nerd’.
Callum is passionate about educating his peers on how to eat healthy, delicious meals on a budget. This ethos is the basis for both his cook book The Starter Kitchen and his cooking school Sprout and is reflected in his choice to become an ambassador for Jamie Oliver’s Home Cooking Skills.
Callum will return to Australian screens when he re-enters the MasterChef kitchen as part of MasterChef All Stars airing in July this year.
