You may recognise Scott from the 2014 series of Masterchef, but his journey into the world of culinary arts began years before in his hometown of Adelaide. A family man at heart and a previous carpenter, Scott wouldn’t stand out as your typical gourmet chef, but after blowing judges away and winning the hearts of Australians on one of the top rating shows in the country, his path ahead is paved with pots, pans, knives, forks and spoons.

Scott’s love of cooking began after a run of bad luck with his health and fitness that started when he was an apprentice carpenter. Tearing discs in his back, a broken ankle, a tumour on his foot and a bulged disc in his neck, all making the physicalities of carpentry increasingly more difficult.

While he was recovering, Scott would spend hours watching cooking shows and developing his enthusiasm for the budding chef within him. Although Scott’s cooking style is inspired by his family and friends, he is a methodical and precise chef who creates some truly beautiful dishes.

The balance between the homely style and the more gourmet is reflected across Scott’s personality. He can be found equally cooking a 5 course dinner in a private home, as much as he would be at his shack on the Murray, playing guitar and creating a feast for family and friends.

Now based in Melbourne to follow his dream, Scott spends his time cooking private dinners for celebrities and business executives, demonstrating his skills to the public and constantly working on new ideas and dishes.

"Nothing makes me happier than to hear that people love my food and want to go back for more." - Scott Yeoman
