Throughout his tenure on MasterChef Australia, Reynold became synonymous with creating creative and mind-blowing sweets. In fact, he earned the formidable nickname, “The Dessert King.”

Will Reynold Poernomo Win MasterChef: Dessert Masters?

As it stands, Reynold Poernomo is easily in the running to win MasterChef: Dessert Masters. After all, he’s already come close to winning the MasterChef Australia title on two separate occasions. 

However, there is one thing standing in Reynold’s way. According to his own admission, he’s a bit rusty when it comes to making sweets.

“Third time round in the MasterChef Australia kitchen for Dessert Masters, amongst nine other top gun pastry chefs in the country,” Reynold wrote on Instagram. “I’ve been so focused on doing a lot of dining… So this will be a thrill, getting back to the sweeter end of the kitchen.”
