Celebrity Chef - Matt Sinclair

Matt Sinclair will headline this year's event.

Matt Sinclair, who finished runner-up in the eighth season of MasterChef Australia, is set to cook up a storm, when he takes to the main kitchen at the festival on Saturday 27 July.

Since his appearance on MasterChef, Mr Sinclair has gone on to open his own restaurant with three mates, called Sum Yung Guys, has his own Cooking show on Channel 10 called The Cooks Pantry, and was a mentor on the latest season of MasterChef.

While his career has taken him all around the world, the talented chef hails from the neighbouring Sutherland Shire.
