Interview: Marcus reveals the only “way to win My Kitchen Rules”

"The way to win My Kitchen Rules is not in the cook"

Mother-son duo Marcus and Sonia have won over hearts all over the nation, but will they win My Kitchen Rules 2023?

Well, you’ll just have to wait to find out. But, according to Marcus, there’s one specific way to come out triumphant on the cooking show.

“I feel like the way to win My Kitchen Rules is not in the cook, it’s not in your stress management, It’s not in your teamwork,” he said in an interview with Chattr.

“I mean it’s all in those things, and there’s a million other things combined that go into it. But the key is the recipes you submit.

“You need to understand what the brief is and sometimes you don’t need to do a million different things that are crazy and that taste amazing. You just need to do a few simple things that really well, and you’ll kick ass.”

Sonia agreed with her son and reiterated that MKR is about good home-style cooking.

“I think everyone tries to zhuzh it up because you think, ‘Oh Colin [Fassnidge], Manu [Feildel] and Australia are watching, we can’t do what we do on a normal Sunday lunch.’

“But if you stick to [what you know] and have conviction in that and you do it really well, I think Marcus is right, that’s one of your best strategies,” she said.

“They want the food you can do well, not an attempt at the food you think you can do,” Marcus added.
