AS this year’s Masterchef is underway, one semi-finalist has already found himself making headlines.
But who is Eddie Scott?
Who is Eddie Scott?
THE MasterChef semi-finalist Eddie Scott, 30, is a marine pilot who lives in Beverley, Yorkshire.
Speaking about his food inspiration, he told the BBC: “Travels to France during childhood holidays have inspired my love for the classic regional dishes of France.
“My Indian heritage also plays a huge part in my cooking style. I love to cook the Punjabi dishes I grew up eating with my family.
“But my real passion is the great Mughlai cuisine: the historic royal dishes of Old Delhi, Lucknow and Hyderabad. I also love to combine classic techniques with Indian flavours, creating my own fusion.”
Does Eddie have social media?
Yes – the Masterchef contestant posts frequently on Instagram.
His Instagram bio says ‘All things food. Real food’ – and that is exactly what you can find on his social media profile.
The semi-finalist posts a range of food snaps, videos and selfies – all with detailed captions explaining the ingredients he used.
He also uses the highlights feature to share videos providing step-by-step instructions of how to cook some of his favourite meals.
His profile also includes a few snaps of himself and his fellow contestants.
Unlike some of the other contestants, Eddie does not appear to have a Facebook profile or a Twitter account.
However, he does appear to have a TikTok account, which former contestant Rish Nanavati follows and leaves comments on.
