“MasterChef Australia” 2023: Theo Loizou

Swapping electrician tools for kitchenware, Theo Loizou is excited to be spicing up his life. In 2019, the sparky travelled to France and pursue his dream of baking bread. Not only did he land a job at a boulangerie but he met his now partner and his six-month trip became a three-year stay.

Many family moments for the Loizous were spent bonding over food and his yiayia’s freshly baked bread. He spent time observing his parents and grandparents in the kitchen which inspired his cooking style.

The now-Melbourne resident uses his intuition when cooking meals and often doesn’t follow a recipe. He notes that his connection to food is intense. A lover of experimentation, he looks forward to pushing himself and reaching his goals in the “MasterChef” kitchen.

Whether or not he takes home the win, he plans to open an artisanal bakery that focuses on sourcing ingredients from local farmers.

Tune in to “MasterChef Australia: Secrets & Surprises” on 10 and 10Play to watch Theo fulfill his dream.
