David Is Bringing the Best of Singapore to ‘MasterChef Australia’

David is on MasterChef Australia 2024

On the 2024 season of MasterChef Australia, the calibre of cookery has never been higher. Every single contestant is bringing some impressive skills, flavours, and dishes to the dining table. If David wants to escape the pack on MasterChef Australia 2024, his cooking must become beyond phenomenal.  

The level of finesse present in this season was first brought to our attention by Jean-Christophe Novelli. Jean-Christophe is a new judge on MasterChef Australia, a chef who has won four Michelin stars.

“You forget they’re not chefs,” Jean-Christophe said in an interview with The Latch. “They are amateur cooks. I keep forgetting that. I was judging them like professional chefs. The contestants are just so good. And the atmosphere, the ambience, the emotion, the speed? It’s just on the next level.”

Does David have the skills to leap this impossible bar? Or will he be swiftly eliminated? Here’s everything we know about the 2024 MasterChef Australia contestant David.
