Brin Pirathapan Biography – Brin Pirathapan Wiki

Brin Pirathapan, born Brinthen Pirathapan, is a veterinary surgeon and contestant on MasterChef 2024. According to his LinkedIn profile, he is currently a veterinary surgeon at Animal Trust CIC in Ellesmere Port, England, United Kingdom. He previously worked at Garston Veterinary Group in Frome, England. In 2020, he founded the Veterinary business BP Locum.

Brin’s earliest cooking memory is “adding chopped up Frankfurters to packet noodles and feeling like a very accomplished chef at the age of eight!”

His cooking style is unique. “I try to balance an array of bold flavours in one dish whilst also using quite classical techniques,” Brin told the BBC about his cooking style. “I like to push the boundaries and give the people I cook for flavour combinations they wouldn’t always expect. The flavour profiles I use are influenced by Asian ingredients. This includes both the influence from my Tamil Sri Lankan heritage and from the food I love to eat and recreate from East Asia.”

He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Veterinary Medicine from the University of Bristol.

Brin Pirathapan MasterChef

Brin Pirathapan is one of the contestants cooking for John Torode and Gregg Wallace in the first heat of MasterChef 2024, alongside Hope Batchelor, Matthew Pearce, Fateha Khanom, Cirilo, and Muir.

He revealed the news on Instagram, writing: “I’m super excited to finally be able to announce that I’m going to be on the new series of Masterchef!”

Brin applied for the 20th series of MasterChef because “I wanted to see how good a cook I truly am. I was very nervous about the idea of going on the show but Anna, my fiancée, really pushed me to take part as she believed I’d be able to go far. Friends and family had also been pushing me to apply for the show for a while as they’ve seen what I can do in the kitchen.”

“I feel like I am a really creative person but I’m not necessarily in a creative industry. Cooking allows me to be original, bold and innovative and showcase my passion. One of the reasons I applied to the competition was to see if I was good enough to make a career out of cooking.”

Brin always watched MasterChef with his family as a kid. Speaking about his earliest MasterChef memories and the show’s impact, he said: “There was never a year we missed it. I think MasterChef is one of the main reasons I’ve pushed myself as a cook – and each year the skills of contestants gets better and better. As I got older I’d try to recreate or experiment with ideas I’d seen on the show, which was an important aspect of my cooking development. Seeing all these amazing professional and amateur cooks grow influenced my creative side and helped me become the risk-taking cook I am today.”
