Would You Pay $195 To Eat Masterchef Runner Up Callum Hann’s Food?

In Tuesday’s Sydney Morning Herald’s Good Living section there was a Qantas Holidays advertisement saying Meet the Chefs in South Australia.

Qantas Holidays is offering an exclusive opportunity to meet some of South Australia’s famous foodies and Callum is classified as one of them.

Callum Hann is advertised for a dinner from $195 per person. Granted to you get four courses plus drinks and a chance to chat to him, however what are his culinary credentials? He was last year’s runner up onΒ Masterchef Australia, and he did three months internship at George Calombaris’s restaurants in Melbourne and decided becoming a chef was not for him. I would think he is a good amateur cook at best.

I am sure he is a nice guy, however all I can remember from his time on the show was his skill with desserts.

Would you go? If you want to his dinners are on the 11th and 18th of May. Go to Qantas Holidays if you are interested.

The other chefs who are putting on dinners in June are Maggie Beer, and Mark McNamara.

In other Masterchef Australia news George Calombaris is being sounded out to run the eating establishments at the newly refurbished Hellenic Club in Sydney. I hope so I ate at his Press Room bar and it was sensational. In fact his prawn kataifi made the earth move for me.

I have to admit, i’d pay the money just to be near Callum if he was my way inclined! lol. I had a crush on him from the beginning. Sure, Matt had the looks (I confess to still having the episode where they briefly flashed Matt shirtless) but Callum was a hottie πŸ˜›

*sigh* Ahh, a guy can dream!

Hey I can relate to that. I have never kept an episode, but definitely rewound for a second look if a contestant or judge is looking particularly saucy.

As to Callum nnnnnnnnnOOOO! I’d prefer Joanne, what a hottie!

For $195 per person I can eat almost anywhere. Callum is not a chef. Still need to learn. Maybe in 10 years time.

BDD…you should come with a health warning. I nearly choked laughing over your comment.

You always say exactly what I wish I could think of.
