KELSEY'S STRAWBERRY CREPES

MEET THE CHEF

We know that you are as mad about cooking as we are, which is why we are super excited to announce our partnership with MasterChef's Kelsey Murphy! US Season 11 winner Kelsey will be sharing home-cook adaptations of her winning MasterChef recipes as well as some new creations with us here!

Born and raised Chicago girl Kelsey currently lives in Indianapolis with her husband and three kids. She specialises in Modern American Cuisine inspired by her background growing up in an Italian and Polish family where food was always a focus and large Sunday dinners were a tradition never to be missed. Through the years she has continued to teach herself new techniques and experiment with flavours for her family.

A frontrunner throughout the series, she created no less than 20 dishes in challenges presented by some of the biggest names in the culinary world. Kelsey's winning creations in the final were steak tartare canape, lobster/crab ravioli appetizer, crispy-skinned duck entrée and a blueberry lavender panna cotta dessert. She focuses on respecting ingredients for what they are, letting each shine on the plate, and bringing together flavors from many American cultures.

ABOUT THE RECIPE

Who said pancakes were reserved for Tuesdays? Here at MasterChef we seek to make any delicious food a year-round fixture. Season 11 Winner Kelsey’s Strawberry and Nutella Crepe recipe is a low-effort high-flavour dream dessert that utilises just a handful of ingredients you’re sure to have laying around your pantry. Utilising the MasterChef countertop blender, these light and buttery crepes are a favourite with her children and can be whipped together in minutes with this mix-as-you-go one pot recipe. Folded up with the timeless combination of Nutella and strawberries, top your triangular crepe slices with a dusting of icing sugar and some residual strawberry slices to give your dish that signature chef finish.
