A foodie from Forest Gate will compete in the knockout stages of MasterChef this evening.
Michael Sanders will be pitted against four other amateur chefs in tonight’s episode for a chance of going forward to Friday’s challenge - and win a place in this year’s semi-finals.
But speaking to the Recorder, Michael admitted that cooking hasn’t always been his forte.
“I’ve always liked eating but it was only when I moved to London about eight years ago and I was living on my own that I learnt to cook, because I had to,” he explained. “I always had an interest in food but I never really cooked anything until I moved out of my parents’ house.
“In London you are exposed to all types of cuisine from all over the world which is great. I quite enjoy the craft of it as you can genuinely see yourself getting better when you practice.”
