MasterChef casting agent on hand at food festival

FOODIES who have a dream to work in the food industry will have a chance to talk to a MasterChef casting agent at this weekend's Sample Food Festival at Bangalow.

Casting agent Abbie Price, will be on hand at the festival to answer questions about the application process to the popular TV show that has led to work in the food industry for most contestants, not only the winners.

Applications for the 2014 season of the show are now open and questions about the process can be answered by Ms Price, who will be situated in the vicinity of Lennox Head MasterChef contestant, Jules Allen's cooking demonstration between 10am - 11am on Saturday.

"Abbie will be looking for foodies who want to change the direction of their lives," a MasterChef spokesperson said. "The success of the show is that the majority of contestants go on to find work in the food industry.

"If you've ever thought about entering, this is the chance to have any questions about the process answered."

The MasterChef application process begins with an online questionnaire and from there people are chosen for the first round of cooking for casting teams.
