Callum Hann became the fresh new face of cooking in 2010 when he was runner up in the prestigious competition MasterChef at the age of 19, and he hasn't looked back (including winning MasterChef Australia All Stars in 2012).
Today he jointly runs the innovative Sprout Cooking School and works as the brand ambassador for the Adelaide Produce Market. Callum is also a presenter on Channel 7's SA Weekender as a roving reporter, travelling to all the regions and sharing the stories of some of our state's best producers and food businesses.
Sprout was set up with close friend Themis Chryssidis, an accredited practising dietitian. Classes are hands-on and tailored to individuals' needs, cooking ability and budget. It has since expanded to incorporate a catering business and a health studio.
Callum has also written three cookbooks - based on his philosophy that food should be simple, seasonal and fresh - and toured Australian universities teaching students how to cook and eat well.
"I'm fortunate to travel frequently with my work, and I can honestly say that the quality and diversity of produce we have in South Australia is second to none," he said.
"I wouldn't want to live anywhere else!"
