Masterchef judge Josh Emett will be walking in his father's footsteps when he cooks at Fieldays next month.
His cuisine will be a step up, though. His father was a cook in a burger truck at Fieldays years ago when Emett used to attend as a youngster.
"I grew up going to Fieldays with my father. He cooked in the burger truck they had there. The burgers were great, they used to go off," Emett said.
Emett, a Wintec graduate, will cook in the Kiwi's Best Kitchen marquee at Fieldays, held from June 12-15.
He plans to cook a variety of dishes including duck, quail, rabbit and some vegetable dishes. Not a burger in sight.
"All the demos will be interactive, much like MasterChef's MasterClass, where the audience will be able to comment and ask questions as we go along. I'm pretty free and easy. I'm sure we'll all have a good time. It will be entertaining to watch and informative at the same time," said Emett.
Emett has also created a line of slow cooked meats that are currently only sold at New World in Hamilton, Auckland, and Wellington. They will also be on sale at Fieldays.
