About the author

Hayden Quinn

Hayden is a lover of food, travel, culture and all things outdoors. Growing up on Sydney's Northern Beaches with his family, Hayden was never far from the ocean or from cooking with his mum and family, who served up incredible meals night in and night out. It was hard for him to not fall in love with food, the ocean, good people and of course the healthy lifestyle he loves so much. Cooking is second nature to Hayden and it was his passion for travel and experiencing new food and cultures that led him to apply for the series 3 of MasterChef Australia.
