I would have never even thought that I could participate in Masterchef. Submitting an application to Endemol’s production was out of every personal each, maybe because of laziness or disenchantment. I have to thank my friend Federica, her determination and her affection for me if my online application was filled out and sent out. From there it was an unexpected crescendo of overcoming preparatory steps, in a mix of astonishment and adrenaline, until I found myself in front of the Judges at the first live cooking, to then successfully being part of the Masterclass.
It is hard to convey the energy of this experience, I can only vouch that if ahead of me I had 100 more years and 100 more possibilities to do it again, I would 100 times would! I am grateful for the emotions that I felt, for the experiences that I had, for the professionalism that I encountered, for the outstanding friendships that I have nurtured and for that breeze of notoriety that has accompanied me. In other words, I am grateful for fate that has perhaps wanted to offer me compensation post-pandemic for all sorrowed anxieties.
One never knows what life has in store, everyone deserves their own Masterchef, just like it occurred to me.
