What’s “better” than winning MasterChef Australia? 2024 contestant Sumeet just found out

It's the icing on the cake!

For all MasterChef Australia contestants, winning the series is their dream. However, 2024 contestant Sumeet Saigal just discovered the icing on the cake.

During the June 7 episode of the hit cooking competition, the remaining 11 home cooks were tasked with creating a “fusion sauce” for guest judge Curtis Stone.

While the winning sauce would land the lucky contender a spot in the top 10, they’d also win a once-in-a-lifetime deal to have their creation sold in Coles stores nationwide.

It was Sumeet who out-sauced her co-stars with her InTALIAN Simmer Sauce — a unique blend of Indian and Italian flavours.

Ahead of her challenge win, Sumeet declared the opportunity to have her sauce on shelves a “better’ victory than taking out the whole competition.

“Just for me to get these judges to taste a bit of my dream is so profound, because winning this challenge would be better than winning MasterChef Australia 2024,” she said.

“There’s a lot of pressure.”

Per her 10play bio, the 46-year-old’s “ultimate food dream” was to create a range of sauces

So, imagine her delight when she won the challenge!

“To have my sauce available on the shelves of Coles is an absolute dream come true. I am so grateful to MasterChef, Network 10 and Coles for this life-changing opportunity,” she said.

“Winning this challenge is a great personal victory but also a celebration of the support and encouragement I have received from my family and friends.”

Congratulations Sumeet!
