Arum's Post-MasterChef Food Dreams Are Refreshingly Humble
Arum Nixon has been one of this season's quietly confident MasterChef contenders. He'll be steadily coasting through the challenges week by week, and then slowly, reveal his brilliance, by way of dishes such as that recent beef, smoked swede and liquorice plate. His cooking isn't overly fancy or loud — we like to see it as humbly refined — and you'd be pleased to know that this demeanour translates into real life, too (you just want good things to happen for him). We caught up with the Sydney-sider off the back of his elimination to chat about MasterChef surprises, future plans and the difficulty of cooking to an open brief.
