Tammara is a special education teacher from Calgary. She wears her heart on her sleeve and has a larger-than-life personality, especially in the kitchen. She remembers cooking for the first time at 3 years of age, courtesy of an Easy Bake Oven. Tammara is a self-professed “fooditarian,” a lover of all foods, though with a special knack for preparing Asian dishes. MASTERCHEF judge Gordon Ramsay is high up on Tammara’s list of chef inspirations, though she also notably mentions Lynn Crawford, who she thinks is a spectacular role model for female chefs in Canada.
Being on MASTERCHEF CANADA is a unique opportunity for Tammara who would love to become the next Lynn Crawford – she definitely wants to be regarded as a positive role model for women in the culinary arts. Her dream job is to be a restaurateur and head chef.
