MasterChef judges Melissa Leong,  Andy Allen Jock Zonfrillo reveal their go-to snacks


MasterChef Australia judges Melissa Leong, Andy Allen Jock Zonfrillo eat all sorts of food when they’re taking part in the cooking show. 

However when they are off camera, all three have go-to favourite snacks – and some things they would rather not eat.  

Melissa tells The Herald Sun that the trio are partial to the toasted sandwich known as a jaffle.

‘Quite often, we make a round of breakfast jaffles for ourselves and immediate team, and if we’re shooting long hours, they usually make a return somewhere later in the day,’ she said. 

The judges like to have at least two cheeses, HP sauce and hot sauce on their toasties. 

Melissa admits her guilty pleasure is ‘plastic cheese’ which she uses to make a ‘dirty American quesadilla’ with corn tortillas, and her favourite dish of all time is Hainanese chicken rice.

Jock likes to make up his own ‘special sauce’ consisting of Heinz tomato ketchup and HP sauce which he slathers on fish and chips and bacon rolls, and one of his most beloved meals is the cheese and pepper pasta dish, cacio e pepe. 

Andy admitted that his final meal on earth would consist of ice cream if he had his way.
