More about Justine Schofield:
Justine Schofield inherited a passion for French cuisine from her mother and a ‘roll up your sleeves and get stuck in attitude’ from her Aussie father. After completing a diploma in hotel management and deciding it wasn’t for her, Justine set out to explore her two passions: travel and food.
When the opportunity to enter the first MasterChef series presented itself in 2009, Justine’s skill level and ability to stay calm under pressure carried her through the gruelling audition process. Once the competition began, her cheeky ‘give it a go’ personality combined with her extensive food knowledge and resourcefulness blew the judges away.
After MasterChef wrapped, Justine began turning her passion for food into a full-time career. The first series of Everyday Gourmet aired on Channel Ten in 2011 and has had a new series go to air each year since, Justine’s knack for simplifying classic dishes for the time-poor home cook made it very popular with daytime viewers
Justine is the author of two cookbooks, the first was Dinner with Justine, published with Pan Macmillan Australia. This beautiful book celebrates the food Justine loves to cook and eat at home with family and friends, simple, wholesome and delicious meals that can be made with readily available ingredients.
In addition to being a much-requested personality on the speaking circuit Justine indulges her travel bug whenever possible. She shares these experiences and the recipes she picks up along the way on her blog and Facebook page. Intelligent and sassy, Justine brings a youthful energy and touch of French flair to everything she does.
The weekend was a huge success, Justine was amazing! She was very engaging with our customers, people even came down to Chadstone to see her in action. She was extremely knowledgeable of the produce that she was working with and had very insightful cooking techniques. She was wonderful! Please ensure to thank her from us as we were so happy with how it all ran.

The appearance of celebrity personality Justine Schofield at the center’s rebrand launch event was fantastic. Having such a high profile name (with an awesome personality) was well received by retailers and shoppers alike.

This supports the center’s fresh food repositioning strategy of fresh name, fresh center. It was a fantastic day as Justine’s bubbly personality, love for cooking and her heritage really resonated with the Tamworth audience.

Justine was absolutely lovely. She was easy to deal with in the lead up to the event and on the day of the event. She understood the purpose of the event and helped us in trying to achieve our aims. Justine was personable, funny, kind, entertaining and an excellent communicator. We were able to sell more tickets to the event compared with past years, largely due to Justine’s popularity.
