Lesley Keen prepare a meal at Kitchen Things in Dunedin last
Ms Hamilton taught 10 lucky ODT subscribers how to
cater for a dinner party and offered insights into her life
and time on MasterChef in 2011.
She prepared a three-course meal, which included a chicken
wonton crisp, lamb shanks and mille-feuille.
She told the group how much auditioning for MasterChef
meant to her: ''If it all stopped there, at least it showed
them [her children] that you can move on, you can live your
dream and you can go further.''
