Masterchef contestant Hoda Kobeissi did an Australian Masterchef first by making hand pulled cotton candy from scratch.

As all the judges looked on curiously, Hoda creatively kneads the caramel saying you need “asbestos fingers” to handle the very hot mixture.

“Once it cools down slightly, I’m able to then roll it, turn it into a ring and put it in the flour mixture.” said Hoda.

Nigella Lawson, one of the most famous desert chefs said she is fascinated by Hoda’s work.
