Nice One Mat

Yep, by the end of the show I thought he was the one who most deserved to win it, and whilst I'm glad he did, I do feel for the other two contestants who were bloody good too. But then they're ten or more years younger than him and have plenty of time to pursue their dreams. Mat, it appears, won't be pursuing his just yet, since right now is perhaps not the best of economic times to gamble your livelihood on starting up a restaurant.

His winning menu on the last show consisted of a starter of trio of wild rabbit, a main course of spider crab with hand-cut chips and sea vegetables.

This was followed by an exotic dessert of lavender mousse with hokey pokey honeycomb and a blackberry sauce.

Can't eat crab after reading about the Prador in 'The Skinner'.

Thanks Neal.

I'm glad Mat was the winner; decent bloke who's clearly learning to do some really innovative and amazing things with food. Re the others, I agree that they'll get their chance too, the fact that they've been Masterchef finalists will help. It would be interesting to learn what has become of previous winners, and whether they've fulfilled their dreams in the time since.
