Since his MasterChef win in 2007, Shaun O’Neale has been travelling and performing 
at some of the world’s most popular culinary events, thrilling audiences with his unique style of American cuisine and passion for cooking.   

In 2016, the deejay turned professional chef was crowned MasterChef Season 7 Champion, with further appearances on Seasons 9 and 10, and the MasterChef Celebrity Showdown. Since winning MasterChef, he’s made several appearances on The Travel Channel’s Best in Food show and judged multiple episodes of Home & Family on the Hallmark Channel.  

Off the TV screen, Shaun’s exceptional talent has seen him partner with world-leading lifestyle brands, including Macy’s New York and Disney, and he’s a proud ambassador for Cook Craft Cookware and Pit Boss Grills, the official grill of NASCAR.  

Adding to his impressive list of accolades, the MasterChef Champion shares his favorite recipes in his first cookbook, My Modern Kitchen Table, a showcase of Shaun’s favourite dishes inspired by his global travels, including his title winning venison dish from his MasterChef finale.  

After bringing the MasterChef title back to Las Vegas in 2016, the Shaun O’Neale recently returned to his hometown of Nevada to open his first restaurant and grill house called Larrea.
