Masterchef 2018 finalist Moonira Hinglotwala stepped into the Michelin star Northcote kitchen for a one-off sellout evening.

The five course feast included some of the elements Moonira cooked on the BBC show, including her Indian Scotch Eggs, which Critic Tom Parker Bowles heaped praise on during the tv cooking competition.

Moonira’s dishes offered a different dimension of dining; very different in style to the dishes that usually come out of the Northcote kitchen from Lisa and the team, but incredibly tasty and full of flavour. The pharmacist and mother of two spent the day prepping her dishes with Executive Chef Lisa and the kitchen brigade before serving up the creations to guests.

Moonira said she had an unforgettable time: “What an amazing experience! It was a long day but the food went down a treat. Thank you to my family and all the lovely people I got to meet! A big thank you to Lisa Goodwin-Allen and all of the kitchen team for allowing me to take over their kitchens. It was lovely to see so many faces. An amazing experience with lovely feedback!”
