The action-packed finale of cooking competition show Masterchef saw former assistant train driver Roxi take the title of this year's Masterchef.

DRUM had a brief chat with the winner.

How are you feeling?

I'm just waiting for someone to slap me. This is something I've wanted for so, so long. It just reminds one that you're never too old to follow your dreams.

Before you got to Masterchef you were a train driver. Are you going back to your job?

I had already left my job when I got to Masterchef, it was a decision I took. I want to focus on my dream and that’s cooking.

What was your favourite dish?

My favourite dish was the strawberry dish.

As South Africa’s new Masterchef, Roxi (26) walks off with R500,000 in cash from Robertson’s, a brand new VW Tiguan, R100 000 worth of food from Woolworths, a trip to the French winelands for her and a partner, as well as a year’s worth of wines from Nederburg, and a glamorous five night stay at the Maia Luxury Resort and Spa in the Seychelles, courtesy of Tsogo Sun.

Crowd favourite Siphokazi (39) also doesn’t go home empty-handed. She takes home R100 000, courtesy of Robertson’s.
