MKR stars’ kitchen se­crets

Stirling Times - - Front Page - Tanya MacNaughton

TWENTY-one-year-old wait­resses Stella and Jazzey's friend­ship all be­gan with a hair ac­ces­sory.

“We met in singing class in Year 8 (at John Curtin Col­lege of the Arts) and au­to­mat­i­cally hit it off be­cause Jazzey was wear­ing a head­band that I loved,” Stella, of Hamil­ton Hill, said.

The pair soon dis­cov­ered they had more in com­mon than fash­ion, es­pe­cially a love of food, and have been mak­ing each other laugh with their quirks ever since.

“We are both huge eaters and love cook­ing be­cause we get to eat more,” Stella said.

“We started do­ing some­thing slow-cooked to­gether on Fri­day af­ter­noons with a cou­ple bot­tles of wine and then de­cided 'Why don't we go on My Kitchen Rules?'.”

Stella, who works at Guill St Cafe in Mos­man Park, and Jazzey, who works at Cioc­co­lato Es­presso in Ap­ple­cross, said they thought they “had the right mix of be­ing good at cook­ing but also be­ing a bit out there”.

Nei­ther ex­pected to reach the top eight teams of MKR, which is back on Aus­tralian screens this week from April 15 af­ter a Com­mon­wealth Games hia­tus.

“Ob­vi­ously we were aim­ing for the big prize but that didn't mean we were ex­pect­ing to go very far,” Jazzey, of Coogee, said.

They also did not ex­pect such a

heated clash be­tween team per­son­al­i­ties.

“It was pretty awk­ward for us be­cause we tend to take the back seat a lit­tle bit and just watch,” Jazzey said.
