Jax Hamilton runner up Master Chef 2010
The very popular and vibrant Jax Hamilton is attending Seafest 2012 Cooking Demonstrations
"A funky, energetic personality, I like to say what I mean, because I mean what I say" is how Jax Hamilton descibes herself
Ray McVinnie describes Jax as ‘attractive and effervescent. Where food is concerned, Jax likes to think of herself as an inspirational cook, who loves to blend a little cockney with a little Caribbean all served up on a kiwi plate!
Known particularly for preparing food that is easy to emulate, sourcing locally produced, fresh seasonal ingredients and creating dishes that maintain the integrity of the produce, Jax always allows for a bucket load of creativity and she is happiest when she present a dish which is recognisable from its original organic existence, maintaining the integrity of the raw materials.
Inspirational guidance comes from talents such as Peter Gordon, Donna Hay, Nigella Lawson, Gordon Ramsey and the ever alchemist and Fat Duck himself, Heston Blumenthal!
For 12 intensive weeks during the MasterChef competition, Jax produced a high level of cooking, consistently winning the most challenges and captivating accolades such as “This is a MasterChef dish” from Josh Emmet, Michelin star chef with my Pasta : Ravioli creation and “This is bloody good, I am left with this amazing flavour in my mouth; love the level of heat” from Simon Gault, following my four harmonizing winning curry dishes.
