Masterchef Australia’s Chris Badenoch – Was He Pushed From Beermasons?
There had been plenty of whispers going around that Masterchef Australia’s resident bad boy Chris Badenoch had left Beermasons, the beer club business he was involved in prior to his reality TV show appearance. The big question was whether he jumped or was he pushed? It was unclear when the negative stories emerged last year about his previous business dealings, including bankruptcies whether his BeerMason partners knew about them.
However now it is confirmed in an article in Brew News.
The article says:
Since finishing on Masterchef, Chris has left the beer appreciation and delivery service that he helped to found, BeerMasons, to concentrate on the opportunities that Masterchef has afforded, including writing for magazines such as Alpha. He also has a book, combining beer with his nose-to-tail philosophy of cooking, in the works and due out by Fathers Day.
He has also started a blog called Cooking With Beer. I note that he has not put a link to his former company on his blog roll, which would suggest either an oversight, or an acrimonious ending of the partnership.
Did the his publisher’s know he was leaving Beermasons? As apparently they were going to call it the Beermason’s Cookbook. Oh well they will have think of a new title now. However it is anywhere as popular as the other Masterchef cookbooks they will be very happy.
He is still seeing his Masterchef colleague Julia Jenkins, who apparently did some cooking demonstrations in Perth the other week.
