PETALING JAYA: Malaysian Diana Chan took home the Masterchef Australia trophy in a nail-biting finale on Monday night.

The Melbourne-based cook beat her competitor, Ben Ungermann in the closely fought final. She walks away with a trophy, A$250,000 and a regular column in the food magazine, Delicious.

A strong contender throughout the season, Chan impressed the judges not only with her innovative and flavourful food but also her ability to remain calm under pressure during the many intense challenges throughout the season.

Among the dishes she wowed judges with in this season was her Red Emperor Fish on Spicy Fragrant Sambal, based on a dish her mother used to cook.

Her parents - both strong cooks - were instrumental in developing  her interest in cooking.

The 29-year-old accountant grew up in Johor Baru before moving to KL in her late teens. She moved to Australia when she was 19.

Congratulations to Chan who hopes to open a restaurant serving "wholesome meals" showcasing Malaysian flavours.

Chan is the second Malaysian to win MasterChef Australia, after Adam Liaw, who was born in Penang, won in Season 2.
