Diana Chan is a Malaysian-born Australian chartered accountant and celebrity cook. She is the winner of MasterChef Australia for 2017 and currently works with children through food education via the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden program. Diana loved cooking from a very young age and she learnt a lot through both her parents, but it was only when she moved to Melbourne that her interest grew as she discovered the farmers’ markets that supplied plenty of fresh and local produce from around Australia. She developed her own cooking style, which combined some of the hallmarks of her parents’ styles - her mother’s fresh, herb-driven approach and her father’s love of seafood. Diana believes in creating wholesome, balanced and delicious meals incorporating fusion flavours and her future plans of opening her food concept is deep in the planning stages.
