Your Chef Instructor will be Food Ambassador, Media Personality and Season 11 MasterChef Australia Contestant Dhayanie (Dee) Williams. Born in Sri Lanka, Dee decided to move to Australia in 2007 to pursue a career in Hotel Management. However once having arrived, a whole new world of food and cooking cultures was introduced to her which inspired her instead to consider pursuing her passion in South East Asian Cuisine.

Whilst watching MasterChef Australia over the years, Dee had a desire to experience what all the contestants were experiencing in the competition. Despite several unsuccessful attempts, Dee did not let this dissuade her, and so she persisted on until she was selected to be part of MasterChef Australia Season 11, 2019 as a top 24 contestant. Dee was the first Sri Lankan female to be selected for MasterChef Australia.

Dee aims to showcase the authentic flavours of Sri Lankan cuisine by showing viewers on various social media platforms how to create dishes and explaining the different and complex flavours. Dee featured as a judge and mentor for Sri Lankan cooking show Supreme Chef. Along with continuing to be a Food Ambassador, Dee has also recently released her signature range of spice mixes showcasing her Sri Lankan heritage.
