We are sisters from the small coastal village of Maketu in the beautiful Bay of Plenty. We come from a tight-knit family - we actually all live next door to each other, sharing dinner together most nights of the week.
While growing up in our little slice of paradise we always ate well with the people we loved. We have always loved eating but it wasn't until we both moved away to big cities, Karena (25) to Wellington, Kasey (23) to Melbourne that we really understood how deep our love of food went.
We both love all different types of food, we don't discriminate! You can be so creative with food and we think you should always try to have as much fun as you can while cooking (it really makes a difference to the end result).
When we both returned to Maketu, it was by chance that we entered Masterchef New Zealand and started on this new adventure. Join us on another page of our Masterchef journey. Being a part of the world's first ever Masterchef Duos competition, we really had our work cut out for us. It was an incredible experience and we hope to share some of that with you at our session as well as fill you in on what we have been up to.
We are excited to share some of the new things we have learnt and some tried and true favourites of ours. We put a lot of love into everything we make and we think that is an integral part of what makes a good dish great.
