“MasterChef Australia” 2023: Rue Mupedzi

Rue Mupedzi, a 29-year-old Oral Health Therapist from Western Australia, is ready to leave her mark in the “MasterChef” kitchen. Her passion for food began during her first fine-dining experience in Sydney back in 2014.

Despite her busy schedule, Rue managed to pursue her passion for baking by launching a successful macaron business in 2021.

Her determination and persistence shone through, as it took her 10 months to perfect her recipe. Rue’s love for food stems from her Zimbabwean culture, where it is seen as a way to bring people together. Her mother taught her the basics of cooking, and she has since built on that foundation with her vast collection of cookbooks.
