SOUTH Australian style will be on the menu when Callum Hann and Adam Liaw contest the MasterChef 2010 title this Sunday night.
The pair were revealed last night as the top-rating series' final two left standing after Victorian lawyer Claire Winton Burn was eliminated.
Now, the two male cooks - who are close friends as a result of appearing in the series together - will face a gruelling battle in the kitchen. But, speaking to The Advertiser yesterday, the culinary couple stressed whatever the result it will be a win-win situation.
"I hope it's a final where one of us does amazing and the other does great - and not that someone stuffs up," Hann said.
Liaw added: "As long as we can both do our best, no matter what the result, we will be at least somewhat happy."
Hann, 20, from the Barossa Valley, said that while he would be "crazy not to be nervous" heading into Sunday's finale, he's confident he can take the heat in the kitchen.
"I am nervous but as the series has gone on, I feel like I'm coping with the pressure more," he said.
Liaw, 31, who most recently lived in Japan working as a lawyer, also admits to being nervous but is glad he will have Hann by his side.
"I'm nervous - that's the overwhelming feeling - and really excited as well," Liaw said.
With the two remaining contestants in this year's MasterChef from SA and last year's runner-up, Poh Ling Yeow, also coming from our state, Liaw said these statistics were solid evidence we have a strong food culture.
"Food in SA, in my opinion, is the best. The Central Markets - that should be a model for every city in the world," he said.
Hann said he's relieved the cat is out of the bag regarding his finals berth, with both he and Liaw having had to keep it a secret for several weeks as the bulk of the series is filmed in advance.
The MasterChef 2010 finale will air at 7.30pm on Sunday on Channel 10.
