WATCH: Noosa's Matt Sinclair's MasterChef audition

THERE is a reason for Sunshine Coasters to watch MasterChef this year. And that reason is Noosa barista Matt Sinclair.

Matt is a coffee roaster with Little Cove Coffee Co and self-confessed food lover.

The 27-year-old Tewantin resident whipped up a risotto during his MasterChef audition.

But risotto has been dubbed the "death dish" by the judges because it has been the downfall of many contestants previously.

So did Matt's mixed-mushroom risotto make the cut? Did he impress the judges?

See his risky risotto video here:
