Sorry for the vaguely (!) stalker-ish nature of my comment and congratulations on your success on Masterchef so far.
As you move towards a new career in food, I was wondering whether you would be able to provide me with any advice in relation to your old career. I am currently employed as a first year lawyer in an Australian law firm, but I am desperately keen to work in some sort of legal capacity in Japan, and your position as a media lawyer is really something that I aspire to.
I was wondering if you had any advice or tips on how to get this sort of position, including the process you went through, through whom you applied etc. I have studied Japanese for six years in school and have started again this year to try and get my skills back, but apart from that I am oblivious about what to do next!
My email is included in this comment. I appreciate if you have no time to reply but it was worth a shot.
Best of luck for the remainder of the competition. I will be cheering on all my fellow lawyers! Ganbatte ne!
I have just one word, and one phrase for you:
‘Tetsuya’s’; ‘Be the next ‘Tetsuya Wakuda’.
Opening up ‘just a restaurant’ would not be enough for you.
dear adam, that caricature looks scary :S. have also just realised that you’re “theory” in opensourcefood – (used to trawl that website for recipes back in the good old days before it got sold to nibbledish) and i really liked your recipes and thorough write-ups in there. you’ve been amazing in masterchef; i hope you win! it’d be cool if you opened a speakeasy/private-dining kinda place in the future (and not take the cookbook/celebrity route)
Congratulations on your Masterchef victory, Adam!! You had an American and a Malaysian rooting for you from a Sydney hotel tonight. 🙂
Congratulations on winning MasterChef! You absolutely deserve winning the title! 🙂
Congratulation on winning the Australian Masterchef 2010. Well done!!!! Now, its time to update your blog!!!!!! We would love to follow your journey!! All the best.
Sincere congratulations from a fellow Adelaidean!!!
omedetto, taniah and congrats on Masterchef.
From one Malaysian food lover with aussie n japanese tied to another.
Loved the buta kakuni…
Hi Adam – Congratulations on winning Masterchef, and best of luck in this next exciting phase of your life. I love your approach to food (except maybe the salted duck egg custard), and hope to enjoy some more of your recipes through your website, book and restaurant.
Congratulations from Texas! (ve have vays of vatching! ;))
Your dignity, unfeigned humility and class won you favorite status early on with me – your consistent and growing ability kept you up there. Truly pleased to see you move to victory. I hope you keep up this website – I’ve added it to my RSS feeds. I hope I get to your side of the world someday and can enjoy your food!
Adam, I’m so glad you won MasterChef 2010. I must admit I’m not a big fan of reality shows in general. However your personality caught my eye during one episode of MasterChef that I was forced to watch.
It is rare that to see someone so passionate about what they’re doing and strives so hard to achieve greatness in it. Like you, I am passionate in my line of work and started doing it since I was still in primary school. I must admit, I have never met anyone in my life who is as passionate in what they do.
We are so similar yet we are so different, you can achieve greatness by being open and being congruent to your emotions. In my own way I look up to that, because showing emotion is my greatest weakness.
I hope to meet you one day, maybe on the debut of your izakaya, in Australia, Japan or beyond. You better give a good speech while I’m there!
Wow Adam. Wow.
You are a true gentleman and an inspirational cook. It was such a pleasure to see you master the kitchen. You are a credit to yourself and your family and Australia is a much richer place with you serving such Amazing food.
Can’t wait to get your cookbook.
You are a humble winner.

This is evidence of your ‘dark side’ according to one of the mags I was flicking through at the supermarket checkout this morning… watch out for skeletons (or vampires) in your closet. I hope the media scrutiny isn’t too painful and that you’re keeping all the stories for your grandkids.
That tweet was about some drunk guy who stepped on my toe at a BBQ (I was wearing thongs) and kicked off my toenail. He was drunk and my toe was the one that ended up in excruciating pain for the entire weekend (and about 8 months after that). So I guess that’s my “dark side”.
But of course those mags never let the truth get in the way of a good story…
