Family comes first for celebrity chef

Junior MasterChef judge Anna Gare says she will not be leaving her home in WA to pursue bigger dreams any time soon.

Though it is still uncertain if the children's spin-off of the popular Network Ten cooking contest will return, the celebrity chef says she has a few big opportunities on the table but they depend on where she is based.

"It's all about the sacrifice of working over east, because I'd never leave my home here," Gare says. "It's a matter of fitting in everything I want to do, including being a good mum."

But the Fremantle-raised presenter, who has a blended family of four teenagers with former basketball star Luc Longley, has a new TV project in the works that she can do from her kitchen.

"I've just been working on my own show which I've wanted to do for years," Gare says.

"And I've just done a pilot series of my dream cooking show which involves romance and food and just a bit of fun. It's a very exciting project for me because it's self-driven."

Gare will be at the annual Mundaring Truffle Festival at the weekend with a cooking demonstration to help introduce children to the fragrant fungus.
