UK born Rabbi Josh Steele is the unlikely star of MasterChef Israel’s current series, with large spoonful of talent, a sprinkle of humour and a good pinch of eccentricity the sky’s the limit for the young aspiring chef. Josh combines his love of food with his fierce passion for his religion and proved from his very first dish of blue cheese and chocolate ravioli that strictly Kosher food can be just as unique as any non Kosher creation. It was this dish that prompted one of the judges to call him ‘one of the wackiest contestants we’ve ever seen.
