DAVID HOPGOOD sprung to worldwide TV screens as one half of the "Aussie Soldiers" on the high rating reality TV show My Kitchen Rules Series 3 in 2012.
Initially, David's interest in cooking came from a need to learn to cook for his children whilst his chef wife Cath often worked nights in restaurants.
Over the years cooking developed into a hobby; a form of enjoyment and a
stress relief as the veteran of conflicts in Rwanda, East Timor
and Afghanistan sought solace in the kitchen.
Since My Kitchen Rules, David has successfully integrated his interests in cooking whilst remaining an Infantry Officer in the Australian Army.
David currently enjoys cooking demonstrations, appearances, media involvement & endorsements! Reality TV provides opportunities - but none as rewarding as his involvement in charities such as Children's Cancer Institute, 65 Roses Day, Cancer Council, Red Cross, Legacy. In 2014, David has made a commitment to promote and fund raise through community events for his charity of choice - SOLDIER ON - Helping our Wounded Warriors. www,soldieron.org
