THE LAST WORD: Justine Schofield
Justine Schofield brings a youthful energy and touch of French flair to everything she does. As one of the most popular contestants to come out of the first series of MasterChef Australia in 2009, Justine has since built a career out of everything she loves and has established herself as a familiar and well-respected face of the Australian food and media industry. Justine is the host of popular daytime cooking show Everyday Gourmet on Network 10, which is now in its sixth series, she also runs a high-end catering company, writes a regular column for national taste.com.au magazine, and in April, her first cookbook, Dinner with Justine was published.
I grew up in ... Sydney’s inner west.
The first thing I do when I wake up is ... have a big stretch and then make myself a coffee.
If I could be better at anything it would be ... playing sport – any sport for that matter!
I am at my happiest when ... I’m eating.
When I am not working I am ... socialising with my friends and usually eating!
I wish I could ... play the guitar.
My biggest fashion blunder was ... I had a fluro pink dress at one stage. Never again!
Most people don’t know that I ... speak French.
When I was growing up I wanted to be ... a tour guide.
I couldn’t live without … red wine and cheese.
My greatest achievement is … hosting my own TV show, Everyday Gourmet on Channel 10 for the last six years.
My most annoying habit is … carrying my phone with me everywhere.
My hidden talent is … I am a phenomenal dancer after a few champagnes!
