MKR stars’ kitchen secrets
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.
Stella and Jazzey believe they have the right mix for MKR.
