Like her cooking style, Tessa is refined, elegant and sophisticated.
Born in New Zealand but now based in Queensland, Tessa’s passion for cooking started at the young age of 9 years old, as a little girl with a big sweet tooth. After many years with her head buried in her Mum’s recipe books, Tessa grew to develop her own style of cooking utilising fresh, vibrant and local produce.
Tessa’s natural beauty is also translated through her dishes, as she is a firm believer that food should always look as beautiful as it tastes.
Tessa quickly became a fan favourite on Season 11 of MasterChef Australia, establishing herself as the quintessential Australian sweetheart and a breath of fresh air in the height of competition. As the series runner-up, Tessa also came back to compete in Season 12 of MasterChef Australia: Back to Win, cementing her place in MasterChef and Australian TV history.
Since MasterChef, Tessa has continued to establish herself as a force to be reckoned with. She has launched her own website tessaboersma.com Tessa is both beautiful and bright, having built her own personal brand and partnering with the likes of Good Meat Australia, Jeep x Empty Esky, New Zealand Trade and Enterprise, Bailey's, Phillips, Leggo's & many more currently in the works.
Cooking is only one of the ways that Tessa brings out her creativity and pushes her boundaries. Tessa’s versatility and intelligence have set her up for an exciting future with the perfect foundation for success in many fields. Tessa prides herself as a cook, educator, presenter, recipe writer, public speaker and a lover of all things food! When she’s not experimenting in the kitchen, you can find her travelling the world discovering new cuisines, or exploring all that the great Australian outdoors has to offer.
