Claire Winton Burn’s Masterchef Dream Is Over
Third place getter Claire Winton Burn has returned to work in the law, signalling her career in the food industry is over.
Talking to TV WEEK she said:
“I have gone back to law, but I don’t want to make a song and dance about it,” Claire says. “I’m still doing freelance food writing, so I haven’t thrown in the towel, but I have to make a living.”
Claire also acknowledges that the press interest in her personal life last year played a part in her wanting to step back from the spotlight.
“I got the butt end of some really negative publicity and I’m not interested in going back that place. It wasn’t pleasant,” she explains.
She’s a nice girl – good on her for giving it a go,” says Claire’s former agent, Lyall Mercer.
The article does not say whether she went back to the law firm she had previously been with.
Personally I found her Age articles impenetrable, but that could say more about me rather than her. Also her From The Hearth restaurant dream must be not eventuating either.
