Our favourite Aussie dish: Masterchef 2014 winner Brent Owens on Medu vada, beef ban and more

Brent Owens, who won Masterchef Australia 2014, really needs no introduction to anyone who has been an avid follower of the reality cooking show that everyone loves to love. No one really gave the Bobcat driver with the top knot much of a chance at the beginning of the competition, but he just kept improving, and by the end of the competition was not only a favourite to win, but had some serious plating skills.

 Our favourite Aussie dish: Masterchef 2014 winner Brent Owens on Medu vada, beef ban and moreFirstpost caught up with Owens while he was in India to promote season 7 of the cooking show in the country. We talked a bit about what life is like behind the scenes at Masterchef, what he would do to recreate a classic Indian dish, and also what happened to the top knot!
