Adelaide best mates Tim, 30, and Kyle, 27, bonded over their love of beer, beards and food.
Bartender Kyle works to live, not lives to work, while Tim works in advertising sales but has quit his job to pursue his real passion - food. They describe their cooking style as Modern Australian hunter gatherers.
"When I was a teenager my mum worked a lot of nights so I tried to learn some new moves in the kitchen," says Kyle. "Good food, good mood… I've always said that."
"I first learned to cook with my dad who's a chef," says Tim. "I'm keen to get into the kitchen and show the teams what we can do. I quit my job for this competition so it's really important we do well."
"We came here to win!" adds Kyle.
The single, self-described social butterflies enjoy beer, live music, beer, socialising, beer, the footy and their mates!
If we love the food, everyone else will too!
In The Kitchen:
As a general rule, if it's meats and sauces Kyle will take charge while Tim is more of a sides and desserts dude and in charge of plating up. They have their tiffs, but move on fast. Together they make a "pretty rad team".
