Cook­ing and com­pe­ti­tion on the menu

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Streetwatch -

FOR­MER New­man Col­lege stu­dent Sian Red­grave will bat­tle it out with 11 other con­tes­tants on The Great Aus­tralian Bake Off this month.

The show fol­lows con­tes­tants as they are put through their culi­nary paces and face elim­i­na­tion rounds.

Ms Red­grave was in the class of 2008 at New­man Col­lege and grad­u­ated from WAAPA.

“I wanted to take part in the com­pe­ti­tion as I have al­ways loved the Bri­tish se­ries and was so ec­static that it was be­ing pro­duced in Aus­tralia,” she said.

“I had also at that time come to a re­al­i­sa­tion that I wanted to pur­sue cook­ing as a ca­reer so it all came to­gether.

“My favourite thing to bake would be cakes; I love dec­o­rat­ing, so any­thing I can ap­ply vis­ual flair to, I adore.”

Ms Red­grave said her strengths were in dec­o­rat­ing and plat­ing, while here weak­nesses in­cluded short­crust pas­try and tem­per­ing cho­co­late.

Mag­gie Beer and celebrity chef Matt Moran host the show, which airs on Fox­tel.
