Caroline Brewester was put through the hoops in BBC2's Masterchef Goes Large and fought her way to the finals and second place. However, her performance, food knowledge and skills, mixed with her determination to become the best, really impressed the judges, and she ended up working with both of the Masterchef judges on various food projects.
Caroline has always been passionate about food but has worked as a stockbroker in the City of London for the past fifteen years.
Having been a fervent home cook and dinner party giver, she eventually realised that this was not the path for her and gave up the high-flying career to try her hand as a Masterchef contestant and forge a future in food.
At the same time, she enrolled in Leith's School of Food & Wine, as well as a food writing course, and is working on behind-the-scenes projects with foodies like Annabel Karmel and John Torode and writing articles for food magazines.
She has written a book called Recipe Scrapbook for Duncan Baird Publishing which was published in October 2008.
