Jax Hamilton, needs little introduction with her much-loved style and flair. Since appearing on our screens and winning the hearts of the nation during MasterChef Series 2 in 2011, Jax has set herself a hectic pace with guest appearances at numerous events, appearing regularly on Good Morning, radio spots and TV where she features on the Countdown supermarket adverts and in-store promotions.
As a busy mother and business woman, Jax likes her dishes to have all the wow without all the work, known particularly for preparing dishes that are simple, delicious and full of flavour. Never moving too far from the regular pantry ingredients, with a handful of fresh herbs on the side, she likes to allow for a bucket load of creativity and is happiest when she can present a dish which is recognisable from its original organic existence, maintaining the integrity of the humble ingredients.
Where food is concerned, Jax is an inspirational cook, who loves to blend a bit of cockney with a pinch of Caribbean all served up on a kiwi plate! And if you can’t keep up with her pace or you’re trying to track her down, you’ll always find her in the kitchen at parties!
Her first book, Jax Cooks was published in 2012. She lives in Christchurch.
