NZ MasterChef finalist - Jax Hamilton

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:10 pm on 16 May 2011

Don't ever ask Jax Hamilton to make a Macaroon Flower Frenzy. The French confectionery was her undoing in the season finale of MasterChef last night. Her macaroon and butter icing tower came tumbling down along with her dreams of becoming New Zealand's next MasterChef. Instead Nadia Lim won the title and a deal to write her own cookbook. After 18 challenges and 56 hours of cooking, it all came down to the tower of meringue-like cookies. Jax, an executive assistant from Christchurch, was a front-runner winning several challenges during the 13 episodes of the competition.
