UK MasterChef 2022 champion Eddie Scott will create a special dinner on April 22 at Outrigger Maldives Maafushivaru Resort.The UK MasterChef winner will also hold a special cooking demonstration at the resort for guests who want to learn culinary skills.

Eddie, 31, from Beverley in Yorkshire, won the coveted TV accolade in May with MasterChef judge John Torode calling him a “culinary powerhouse.”

Fellow judge Gregg Wallace said, “I think we’ve just seen the birth of a future great chef.”

Eddie is currently working in the 3-star Michelin restaurant Gordon Ramsay in London.

Chef Eddie draws on his love of classic French food and often surprises diners by adding Indian culinary flavors, a skill he learned from his Punjabi grandparents. His father also made exciting dishes such as Mexican chimichangas and original Indian curries. His mother shared her love of baking with him. Eddie is passionate about Royal Mughlai culinary dishes from northern India.

He learned his French culinary skills from traveling around France with his family, eating in local workers’ canteens, exploring fresh markets, then emulating the dishes back home in England.

“The way food was ingrained in French culture was a total revelation. I wanted to recreate the food I’d tasted and that’s how I really got into cooking,” he said.
