THE next wave of MasterChef: The Professionals contestants will enter the play on Thursday’s, November 25 show.
Let’s meet Matt Willdigg, a catering company owner looking to take the MasterChef: The Professionals title home for himself.
Who is Matt Willdigg on MasterChef: The Professionals?
Staffordshire-born Matt has already had a long career in the world of cooking.
Enjoying food at a young age, Matt stepped into his first kitchen at the age of 16 during his school’s work experience programme.
That’s where his love for cooking flourished and went on to work in the two Michelin starred restaurant called Hibiscus, which has since closed.
He went on to work at other Michelin starred restaurants and eventually met his would-be business partner, Oli Martin, while working at Sydney’s 2 Hat Gastro Park.
The pair went on to work at other restaurants before deciding to create their own catering business called Foray Catering.
On the Foray Catering website, the company is described as giving an “unforgettable bespoke dining experience”.
Not only do they cater for weddings and events but they also offer private dining for small groups.
His business partner Oli has competed in the 2018 MasterChef: The Professionals and returned in 2020 to win the MasterChef: The Professionals: A Festive Knockout.
Is he married and does he have kids?
Throughout Matt’s social media, there is no evidence that he is married or has any children.
He is a fan of all varieties of mushrooms, with his Instagram flooded with the fungi.
