Having placed runner-up on MasterChef Australia in 2015, the 30 year old is also a qualified nutritionist and presenter with an enormous fanbase, currently exceeding 150,000 social media followers across 46 countries.
Having grown up with her grandmother and mother as role models in the kitchen, cooking has always been an integral part of Georgia’s life. Born and bred in the bayside suburbs of Brisbane, Georgia spent quality time with her family fishing, gardening and learning about the holistic origin of food. This childhood fascination led Georgia to complete a Bachelor of Health Science in Nutrition, which began her career in the natural health industry as a nutritionist.
Successfully launching her career in the food and entertainment industry following her television debut, Georgia connects with her audience using colourful aesthetics, contemporary topics and approachable methods. Georgia has been an ambassador for a number of leading brands and organisations, and is proudly an Australia Day ambassador for Queensland.
Releasing her self-published e-Book, Plated by Georgia in July 2016, the charismatic cook is also a contributor for Taste.com.au. Television viewers may have seen her as a guest on Studio 10, The Morning Ben’s Menu or Couch Time. Georgia has also travelled the country cooking onstage and presenting at many national food, wine and health events, as well as creating content and conducting innovative workshops for private clients.
