the eighth season of Masterchef Brazil had as a big winner Isabella Scherer. The winner of the title of best amateur cook in the country, prepared a 100% vegan dish, surprising the three judges, Erick Jacquin, Helena Rizzo e Henrique Fogaça.
The participant, born in Florianópolis (SC), has lived in São Paulo for 12 years and received several compliments throughout the Program.
“It’s a dream come true. Very surreal, quite crazy. I can’t believe I’m here. Along with the trophy, I also gained many friendships, self love and the certainty of what I want to do for the rest of my life”, he said in an exclusive interview to Band.com.
Although divided into careers as an actress, businesswoman, stylist, model and digital influencer, it is in the kitchen that the aspiring chef feels truly fulfilled.
“I’m sure this is what I love to do. I leave here crazy to do an internship and work in a professional kitchen. I want to learn and serve others. I think I discovered, more than ever, the pleasure of feeding someone”, admitted she, who reached the limit of adrenaline during the tests. “I ran away from my comfort zone, made recipes that I thought I didn’t have time, invested in crazy ideas and ran from what was simple or too easy”.
Isa won with a vegan dish
For the 25-year-old, winning the trophy with a whole vegan dish was an important achievement.
“It’s a personal accomplishment. I increased the difficulty level. I knew that if I lost by raising a flag, something I believe in and with a political bias, it would be very rewarding.”
The experience on the program also made Isabella look more at herself.
“I saw that I had to trust and believe in myself. I had the courage to tell my family, my boyfriend and my friends that I am my priority now and I will not give up on that. That’s the reality: I decided to value myself every second and that’s when everything changed”.
The prize of R$300 thousand for the young woman already has a destination and participation in the realization of her dreams.
“I’m going to save the money and I want to study and learn from great chefs in the daily life of a restaurant. One day, I plan to use the prize to start a business, but I don’t want to make any rash decisions. I leave here with more thirst for learning than I came in”, he concluded.
