Gary Mehigan
Gary’s television career started years ago with regular appearances on Good Morning Australia with Bert Newton, What’s Cooking and Fresh in the early days, then the first series of Ready Steady Cook, and The Circle on Channel TEN.

His first stand-alone series Good Chef Bad Chef aired on Channel 7 and the Lifestyle Channel for two seasons, and Boys Weekend, which he shot with 3 mates, has been aired in over 110 countries, and still can be seen on SBS in Australia. In terms of a television apprenticeship he believes these shows gave him the confidence and understanding to take his newfound skills further if the opportunity arose.

MasterChef has been by all accounts a game changer for all involved. Ten years in and 12 series later, Gary, Matt & George have become part of our daily viewing, when it comes to food. MasterChef Australia series 2 was the highest rating show on Australian television of all time and the show has inspired a new generation of young cooks to embrace food and cooking. It has remained the topic of conversation around the water cooler at work and changed the conversation for thousands of families around the dinner table.

Recently India has become important territory for Gary. In November ’17 Gary was in Delhi and Mumbai to film his first series for Fox Life called Masters of Taste. The 11 episode series will launch in early March on Fox Life featuring some of India’s best chefs and foodies. With MasterChef Australia continuing to have a huge following in India, Gary will certainly be back not just of Masters of Taste but a number of other events during 2018.

Gary says he feels blessed in his career, it has allowed him to travel, indulge his passions and meet some extraordinary people. He has by his own admission felt the pain and pressures of failure but enjoyed great success and couldn’t wish for more. He values, honesty, enthusiasm, passion and compassion, and above all else he loves to teach. He is captivated by beautiful produce and has a lasting admiration for the people who grow, rear and craft wonderful things that we can eat and enjoy.
