Justine Schofield is the poster girl for today’s busy, motivated career woman. Areas of speciality include Speakers. Between filming her daily food show, ‘Everyday Gourmet’ on Network Ten and cooking and travel series; Justine’s Flavours of Fiji, Outback Gourmet, New Caledonia and Macau, she doesn’t have much free time. Yet somehow, Justine manages to appear at food events all over Australia and work with various charities. A fan favourite of ‘MasterChef’ series one, years on Justine has well and truly established herself as a familiar and well-respected face of the Australian food and media industry.

Bilingual Justine inherited a passion for French cuisine from her mother and a ‘roll up your sleeves and get stuck in attitude’ from her Aussie father. An accomplished cook in her own right, Justine’s mother taught her about the pleasures of food and ‘joie de vivre’ from a young age. After completing a diploma in hotel management and deciding it wasn’t for her, Justine set out to explore her two passions: travel and food.
