Cameron Petley is a father of five who lives in Putaruru in central Waikato. Before becoming one of the finalists in series 2 of MasterChef NZ, he worked at a chicken farm. Although he didn't win the series he was seen as the 'people's choice' and considered to be unlucky to have been eliminated. He is now Head Chef of the very popular Putaruru Hotel and people come from miles around to taste his food. This is his first cookbook.
