Vanessa Baxter won the hearts of many when she appeared in the 2013 season of MasterChef, finishing up at fourth. However, by this time she had already spent half a lifetime following her passion for food. Having qualified as a music therapist with a psychology degree, she soon ditched that for a job in an Italian restaurant in Melbourne. From there, she went to work in London and the United States, all the while devoting her spare time travelling around the world in pursuit of genuine food experiences.
