With a plate of scrumptious chilaquiles the Mexican Flor Labana took the glory

 

Flor Labana, originally from Mexico City, won first place at “The Chef´s Line”, which could be viewed as an Australian version of the famous program “Masterchef”.

The Mexican left her country eight years ago to move to Australia where, being a cooking enthusiast, she decided to take a shot at the competition, and so, during the third season of the show, Labana gave her all in every dish.

 

The meal that earned her the glory during the show’s final was the Michoacán style chilaquiles, which left the judges in awe due to its exquisitely elaborate Mexican flavor. In addition, she also prepared an encore rendition of her marvelous mole, her signature dish, which initially catapulted her to fame.

Incidentally, Flor wasn’t the only Mexican to make it to the end. Clad in typical Mexican attire, she faced sous chef Gianni from the Mexican restaurant “El Público”, located in Australia.
