“My mum has been cooking since I was a kid, creating dishes, and I’ve been cooking with her in the kitchen,” And then my dad really sparked my love of travelling, so all of them together are the reason I cook the food I do. ” Before I became a chef at first, she [her mother] would let me do canapés and desserts – but now she will actually give me a course, which is very exciting.

 “We’re always a household that host parties and cooks all the food for everyone. People come to our house with Tupperware because they know there’ll be so much they can take home.” Ms Pathakji said she hoped her success on the show would act as a springboard for exciting projects in the future.

“It’s very exciting because it’s the first time in my career where there are people who really want to eat my food – and I want to do that for them,” she said. “I want to do pop-ups and collaborations and work with the fabulous chefs I competed alongside. ” It’s still a work in progress but there’ll definitely be things in the new year I think.”
