Masterchef Champion 2012 in the studio
I am so excited to share these images taken a few weeks ago when the lovely Keri Moss popped into the studio for a few headshots. Keri, winner of Masterchef the Professionals 2012 is a familiar face on our television screens and in our newspapers these days – it’s not often I have a Masterchef Champion in the studio and I was (just a little) bit over the moon and delighted.
Glued to my TV set throughout the competition I was delighted when she won the title jointly with Anton Piotrowski who owns a restaurant, The Treby Arms with his wife Clare in Devon. It was gruelling stuff and when it was down to the final three I wanted them all to win. Naturally I had lots of questions about the competition and admitted to shedding a few tears along the way, well – it was nailbiting stuff!!
It was a very emotional moment when Keri faced 30 Michelin starred chefs for a critique. She wowed them with her wonderfully elegant goat’s cheese semi-fredo. I will never forget the words of Michel Roux Snr when he told her it was the perfect desert and said that she should be proud…I repeat (in case you missed it the first time around) Michel Roux Snr said it was the perfect desert!!!! (I cried).
Keri is now Head Chef at Selfridges, The Corner Restaurant & Champagne Bar which is already getting great reviews – it is situated on the second floor in Selfridges, at the corner of womenswear, so food, champagne and shopping all in one place.
As you can see from the images above she laughed a lot during the shoot and it was a great afternoon.
