Melbourne besties Caitie and Demi are the youngest team in the competition. 

“We think that might be a bit of an advantage for us, because we bring something a little bit different, that maybe the others haven’t seen yet,” says


The girls met in Year 7 during Food Tech. They quickly became friends after realising they shared a similar sense of humour and a passion for fashion.

“Our mantra is food, fun and fashion,” says Caitie.

“We like to do a lot of fusion food,” reveals Demi. “Caitie loves Italian food, I love Japanese. We love bringing those ingredients together to serve fashion food.”

“I reckon the other teams will underestimate us,” admits Demi.

“They'll perceive us as fun, and that maybe we don’t take things too seriously,” says Caitie. “But we’re here to prove them wrong!”

Food Philosophy

Fashion, food and fun. Cook the food you want to eat, and make it look like it should be on a front cover


Caitie is great at sweets, and Demi excels in savoury. 

In the Kitchen

Demi is the leader in the kitchen. She's the fast and efficient one, whereas Caitie is better at presentation and preparation.

Demi does most of the cooking. Caitie is the brains and vision behind their menus and how they will be presented.

Demi is great at thinking on her feet, while Caitie is more precise and pedantic.

They rarely disagree or get annoyed at one another.

Home Cook Heroes

Caitie: My grandma. She's a 5 foot pocket rocket and cooks for our whole family on her own. 

Demi: My mum and dad. 

Signature Dish 

Caitie: Any pasta that I make I'm very proud of. It's my thing. I love making dough then turning it into pasta, it really excites me.

Demi: Matchamisu - my matcha tiramisu. It's something I thought up and tried out, and it ended up being amazing. Now it's one of our favourites desserts to serve.
