Chris Badenoch's Biography

Known as the hat wearing beer merchant, Chris Badenoch was one of the constant favourites to take out the title of MasterChef Australia and was well regarded by the judges, industry and viewers for his technical cooking ability, food knowledge and clinical approach.


When MasterChef contestant, Chris Badenoch served up Duck Neck Sausage, Roasted Pigs Head and Beeramisu to millions of people in lounge rooms across Australia, he knew he was taking a risk.Phrases like: are you out of your mind; the MasterChef journey is over for; and what the hell are you doing; nearly deafened him.
Fortunately the judges absolutely loved the meal, not only for its great flavours but for the story that it told about Chris’s food philosophy. More importantly, the meal resonated with millions of Australians and put old fashioned, traditional cuts and cooking methods back on the menu.
Known as the hat wearing beer merchant, Chris Badenoch was one of the constant favourites to take out the title of MasterChef Australia and was well regarded by the judges, industry and viewers for his technical cooking ability, food knowledge and clinical approach.
Chris shared with the audience his passionate views on eating and drinking. He demonstrated to a doubting public just how exceptional an ingredient beer can be and introduced many new people to the booming craft beer scene in Australia.
While MasterChef provided a life changing experience and exposure to exceptional training opportunities, the show was a clear extension of his day job.
Chris has not always been this boutique beer loving, nose to tail advocate. He has spent the vast majority of his life forming this food philosophy in his own and his mother’s and friends’ kitchens and in the restaurants and cookbooks of great chefs from Australia and abroad. Over time, he has discovered that this is the food that he likes to cook and to eat and has found the perfect accompaniment in craft beer.
He takes great satisfaction in the fact that the bounty he now enjoys preparing and eating, comes from the lesser cuts and off casts and by today’s standard, the unworthy.
He feels he was lucky to discover this culinary world and is keen to share its tasty and affordable secrets with the rest of Australia.
He uses his witty and dark sense of humour to communicate his thoughts on a cuisine that is close to his heart and stomach. While slightly off beat, unconventional and irreverent, tattooed and be-hatted, Chris is very entertaining and always memorable.
