Pookie Biography – Pookie Wiki
Pookie is a contestant on season 18 of MasterChef UK on BBC One and BBC iPlayer. Prior to joining the MasterChef 2022, Pookie was a Beauty Salon Owner in Solihull. She was born and grew up in Bangkok, Thailand, and moved to the United Kingdom after compeleting her degree. She lives with her husband.
Asked about his Food Inspiration, the MasterChef contestant told the BBC: “I was born in Bangkok and grew up in Thailand. I am Thai with Chinese heritage and although this has a huge influence on my cooking, I don’t limit myself to Thai-Chinese food. I like cooking international foods but love introducing my own style with all the foods I’ve cooked. Most of all I want my food to be flavoursome, delicious, fun and put a smile on people’s faces.”
Asked why he applied to be on MasterChef 2022, Pookie said: “Friends had often encouraged me, saying my style is very unique and finally my husband made me apply. I’d never really thought I was good enough to enter a competition such as that, but one day I just decided to go for it. I’m not super competitive but I love cooking, so I will give it a go, have fun and who knows how far it will take me! I’d like to show the world my Pookie Style.”
Pookie was age 45 at the time of filming MasterChef UK 2022. She was born and raised in Bangkok, Thailand.
