In 2020, millions of Australians watched on as fan-favourite Emelia Jackson was crowned the winner of MasterChef Australia.
The pastry chef, who proved to be talented in... *checks notes* every single cooking and baking challenge that was thrown her way, is now an author of her own cookbook and mother of two to daughter Adelyn and son Malcolm.
"Life has been a real whirlwind," she tells Mamamia.
"I launched a cake packet mix, delivered thousands of desserts across Melbourne, got engaged and have had two babies, worked with some amazing brands such as Belling and Queen, and in November of last year, released my first cookbook – First, Cream the Butter and Sugar."

Emelia's favourite baking projects are the ones that are a fun challenge.
"I love labour-intensive baking projects," she says. "Something I can really immerse myself into for a few hours. I really love baking tarts at the moment and learning new things with every bake. Can’t beat a classic custard tart."
The chef's favourite meal of all time, though (as hard as that must be to decide) is a classic, winter-warming feast.
