The My Kitchen Rules Journey begins – we need your help

Posted on

Today my wonderful friend Ruza and I decided to do something BIG! We are going to join foodie forces and apply to be on the next series of  My Kitchen Rules. But, we need your help to get noticed!!

Read our story below, and then we would be so grateful if you would jump onto the MKR forum and place a post on there asking the producers to have an extra special look at our application. The more support we can get, the better! Don’t forget to pop a link to this blog (http://www.uforicfood.wordpress.com) on your post – so they know who you’re talking about.

So what’s led Ruza and I to apply to be on the show? This is our story …

Lots of people have said to me due to my hopeless obsession with cooking, that I should go on Masterchef. I always scoffed at them. Me, on TV?! Don’t be ridiculous! I don’t even do desserts! But, I saw the ad on TV last night and I thought to myself why not? It could be a lot of fun and a really cool life experience!

But, I had to find someone who I could cook well with. Someone I trust and who would complement my cooking skills. I had to look no further then Ruza.

Food has always brought the two of us together – ever since we met at work in 2008. We have shared many chats about different dishes we have cooked, ingredients we have found and we enjoy catching up regularly for dinner parties.

While I love cooking entrees and mains – Ruza is the Dessert Queen. Not only is her background very multicultural – a Croatian raised in Norway, marrying a Persian – but she’s always trying out new recipes and makes creations I could only dream of achieving. She has been my number one support when it comes to my crazy food blogging and for that – I love her very much!

We have grown very close over the years – so much so that she has even asked me to be one of her bridesmaids at her wedding!! Let’s just hope she’ll still have me after all the excitement and stress of MKR (if we make it, that is!). I can be very bossy, you know 🙂

We are always there for each other, whether it’s me needing life advice or Ruza needing a curry recipe. I know if we make it onto My Kitchen Rules – we’ll make a fabulous team!!

The next port of call is to make a 3-minute video to tell the people at MKR why we should go on the show. Any ideas? It looks like we will be filming it tomorrow evening – with the cut-off date of Sunday midnight fast approaching!

We want the video to not only represent us – but our state as well. Let’s face it – Victoria hasn’t done so well in this competition so far and we really hope we can do something about it!

Ruza lives in the city – with the Vic Market and other awesome places to buy ingredients all around her. Me? Well I am in foodie heaven too – on the Bellarine Peninsula. It’s becoming famous for its olive oil, wines, pick-you-own strawberries and saffron is even grown five minutes down the road from my home. Let’s not forget the fabulous seafood, including mussels from Portarlington. We are a classic pair of city meets surf and we have the cooking skills to showcase it to the rest of the country.

Leave your ideas in the comments section below and don’t forget to visit the MKR Forum and put in a good word for us!

I know – it’s a long shot – but you’ve got to give these things a try. You only get one shot at life, after all!

Be Inspired~
