Courtney Roulston first rose to fame after competing 

in Series 2 of Masterchef (2010).

Prior to Masterchef, Courtney worked as a

barmaid in her local bowling club. She did this for ten years 

before plucking-up the courage to apply for the show that

would change her life...

Born in Blacktown but raised on a farm in Kellyville,

Courtney is the youngest of six. As a child, she enjoyed

playing cricket, fishing, & something a little more uncouth...

studying Margaret Fulton's cookbooks! It was at this time- 

the tender age of eight, that Courtney first realised she'd

taken a real liking to cooking. Her very first re-creations 

included homemade pizzas & cheesecakes- a far call

from some of the dishes she so easily executes today...

In 2011, Courtney set-up her very own successful catering

company, with clients ranging from the 'Sydney Swans'-

with 60 hungry mouths to feed, to private catering jobs

scattered around Australia.

Aside from her own catering business, Courtney also acts as

an ambassador for Coles, participates in regular cooking

demonstrations for both Bunnings & Coles & has her very

own cooking segment on Channel 9's 'Mornings' with Sonia

Kruger & David Campbell. Courtney also features in

‘The Food & Wine Show’ (2014 & 2015), which takes place

all over Australia throughout the year.  

In the past Courtney has created over one hundred recipes

for 'Shannon Ponton's 8 week challenge', featured in Harvey

Norman's 'Cooking in Style' TV commercials & also cooked for

former Prime Minister, Julia Gillard.

And if you haven't yet had a flick through Courtney's books,

'The Salad Kitchen' and, 'Salads In A Jar', make sure you grab

one- there's recipes for EVERYBODY jam-packed inside!

2016 looks set to be both a busy & exciting year for Courtney!

As well as running her catering business, Courtney will also be

doing some television work, playing judge to 'Chefs' Table',

Clubs NSW 2016 & will also be working on a few other secret
