Christopher Siu is a pharmacy student from Markham, Ont. He became interested in baking after years of watching his father make cheesecakes for family birthdays. By studying cookbooks, Christopher became a great baker, making fresh bread during the week and pastries for afternoon tea on the weekends. His friends and family are his inspiration for baking, and putting smiles on their faces through his sweets and treats is what keeps him going. His favourite ingredient to cook with is unsweetened chocolate, the key ingredient to his favourite dish: Raspberry Chocolate Tart. For Christopher, baking is relaxation – give him a whisk and a rolling pin, and he’s in full meditation.
Christopher is looking to learn and take in as much as he can during his time in the MASTERCHEF CANADA kitchen. His food dream is to open a pastry shop.
