Jock Zonfrillo: Last ShotWed 8 Sep, 6.30pm
From life on the streets battling addiction to becoming a top Australian chef and MasterChef judge, Jock Zonfrillo shares the stunning journey chronicled in his memoir Last Shot. On stage with Zan Rowe, he recounts growing up in 1980s Glasgow, to barely balancing a career as a rising culinary star with a crippling drug habit, to being taken under the wing of legendary chef Marco Pierre White. He reflects on his life-changing move to Sydney, the closure of his prized restaurant during COVID-19, his time on country, and some very public battles.
