AFTER coming second in series two of MasterChef, Callum Hann has won the reality cooking show's inaugural All Stars series.

Hann was officially crowned the winner of MasterChef All Stars after a hard-fought final cook-off against Chris Badenoch and Kate Bracks.

The young cook impressed the MasterChef Australia judges, including renowned Australian chefs Maggie Beer and Peter Gilmore, to claim the title and $20,000 for his charity, Cancer Council.

After Bracks was eliminated in the first round, Hann and Badenoch were challenged to recreate Peter Gilmore's famously difficult dessert, the Snow Egg.

In the end, Hann scored 70 points out of 80, to Badenoch's 62 points. 

"What an unbelievable feeling," Hann said.

"I came in as one of the underdogs, so to come out on top was really special.

"The Cancer Council does so much for the families going through what is one of the hardest times of their lives. And having gone through that myself, with my dad, I think this money can go such a long way to help people with the support services they need, and just make their lives that little bit easier."
