Hi, I’m Keyma 

MasterChef Australia S14 / 2022  – 4th finalist

One of my biggest gains from participating in MasterChef was understanding flavour at a deeper level and finding my own voice.

My food journey during the competition led me to develop my own cooking style, integrating new techniques, freshly discovered ingredients and a creative approach into my beloved traditional flavours, now this food journey continues growing to deliver what I call an elevated version of Latin-Caribbean cuisine.
Nowadays I’m actively working to give Caribbean and South American cuisine a place in Australia’s food scene, by collaborating with restaurants, brands, and festivals to bring awareness and representation in the country, I’m also passionate about educating people about the food diversity in the Caribbean and South American Region by creating fresh and unique digital content, private food experiences and live events to open the dialogue and shorten the gap between South America and Australia.

about me

Mother of two, Engineer by trade, Cook by heart, originally from Venezuela, living in Australia, influenced by flavours of my land and my migration journey

When I'm not cooking I enjoy dancing, crocheting and all things crafty, daily walks with our rescue greyhound Roger, and family time around movies and board games. My passion for cooking started at the young age of 10, when my mum's huge collection of baking cookbooks made me dream day and night about my next cooking projects. I grew up surrounded by foodies and amazing cooks in my family, and my cooking style was hugely influenced by my grandma and mum, as well as our trips around Venezuela and its different regions (Coastal towns, The Andes, and the Amazons) as well to other Caribbean landmarks (Trinidad and Tobago, Aruba, Dominican Republic).
