National culinary hero, Diana Chan is set for a triumphant homecoming to Malaysia for the first time since her nail-biting victory in MasterChef Australia Season 9.
Born in Sitiawan, Perak and raised in Johor Bahru, Diana grew up drawing inspiration from her parents’ Peranakan cooking at home before leaving for Australia to pursuing her studies and career. Last month, she did Malaysia proud by winning the popular culinary competition reality TV series and bagging the grand prize of AUD250,000 (RM834,000) in cash.
The 29 year old accountant overcame countless gruelling challenges and won out over 23 other aspiring amateur cooks. Diana’s epic three-month journey, broadcast on Lifetime, saw her garner a strong Malaysian fan-base, thanks to her cool, collected and versatile approach in the kitchen, and for spotlighting the varied and wonderful flavours of Malaysia.
To share the joy of her achievement, Diana is returning home to meet her fans in Kuala Lumpur. Catch Diana in person at a special appearance open to the public at South Court (Ground Floor), Mid Valley Megamall on 7 October, Saturday. She will share her amazing experiences from the competition and answer all fan questions, along with a special live cooking demonstration of one of her signature dishes.
MasterChef Asia Malaysian finalists, Jasbir Kaur and Marcus Low will also be part of the celebrations, and will be cooking live at the event. Don’t miss out on this culinary experience of a Lifetime!
