BBC’s Celebrity MasterChef Contestant Touches Hearts

In a heartwarming episode of BBC iPlayer’s Celebrity MasterChef, contestant Wynne Evans moved viewers to tears as he shared the poignant story behind his semi-final dish with renowned judge Gregg Wallace.

Tasked with creating a dish inspired by a cherished memory, Wynne decided to pay tribute to his Belgian grandfather, who fled his homeland during the war.

Wynne crafted a Boudin Blanc dish, featuring creamy white sausage with chicken mince infused with truffle, nutmeg, and thyme, accompanied by Stomp (a blend of mashed potatoes, carrots, leeks, and bacon), and beer-braised chicory topped with an onion and Belgian beer gravy.

He explained,

“My memory of my grandfather was always tainted because he left my grandmother after the war, going back to his family in Belgium. My grandmother was devastated.”

However, a heartwarming revelation from Wynne’s first cousin in Belgium changed his perspective. Wynne shared,

“My first cousin said, ‘Your grandfather used to sit me on his knee all the time and tell me that he wanted to go to his love in Wales but his family would disown him if he went.’ So, this is a meal of a love story.”
