Um, Home Cook Josh ‘Pezza’ Perry had recipes published before going on MasterChef Australia

Yup, Pezza has been published.

MasterChef Australia 2024′s Josh ‘Pezza’ Perry loves a good cut of meat, and, being a butcher, he certainly knows what to do with it!

The home cook’s meat knowledge is second to none, and he even runs his own small butcher shop in Tasmania.

Here’s everything we know about MasterChef Australia‘s Josh.

Josh has had his recipes published

Although he’s considered a home cook, Josh has actually had some of his cooking work published prior to going on MasterChef Australia 2024.

In 2021, he shared a post on Instagram announcing that he’d been published in The Butcher’s Cook Book.

“Pretty happy with the Butcher’s Cookbook that I got a couple of my own recipes in along with 50 other butchers around Australia,” he wrote.

Josh owns a butcher shop

Josh owns a butcher in Tassie called Perry’s Quality Meats, which is dubbed the state’s “best paddock-to-plate butcher”.

And, he’s definitely well-versed in local meats. Josh is a former livestock agent who feeds his own cattle to sell.

The butcher shop is a family affair, and Josh works alongside his wife of 20 years and best friend Jen. His two sons have also worked at Perry’s Quality Meats in the past.

Josh’s personal life

When Josh isn’t busy at the butcher, he’s using his own meat to make some mouthwatering meals for his family. Every Sunday he cooks for his wife, four kids and his three young grandkids. Of course, his cooking method of choice is the BBQ.

Josh’s passion for food was ingrained from a young age, and he learnt to cook by his Mum, Nan and Aunt.

His ultimate dream is to open a small paddock-to-plate-style restaurant in Tasmania.
