She’s wowed the judges and made it to the finals – but Audra’s toughest critics are her sons.

She’s one of the break-out stars of this year’s MasterChef,  impressing us each week with her delicious Asian-inspired dishes. Now even Audra Morrice’s two children have started to judge her culinary creations!

“Since I’ve been home, I’ve had a whole list of things they want me to cook and when I’ve finished it, I get rated,” laughs Audra, who says her sons Alex, 8, and Andre, 6, have started taking their cues from George, Matt and Gary. “You know, you don’t have to live with the judges but you have to live with these guys!” the 41-year-old says. “I think I’ve only had a really bad score once though. Alex said, ‘Oh my god, Mum, this is the worst meal you’ve ever made!’” Thankfully, most nights Mum’s cooking gets full marks.

“Can I have another one?” Andre asks during the Woman’s Day shoot, eagerly reaching with his chopsticks for a second serving of Audra’s Pot Stickers (pork and prawn dumplings). The score for tonight’s meal is a perfect 10.

The kids aren’t the only ones enjoying it – Audra’s husband of 10 years, Carl Anderson, 42, is also a big fan of her food. He admits they all did it tough when she was away filming. “We didn’t eat as well,” says Carl. “We definitely missed her.” In fact, it was Audra’s fabulous cooking that helped win Carl’s heart in the first place. “She’s a very open person with a warm heart, a big heart,” Carl says. “And she’s a very good cook!” he adds.
