We’re thrilled to welcome award-winning chef and restaurateur, Jean-Christophe Novelli, as a Neuroblastoma Australia ambassador. 

Jean-Christophe Novelli, one of the UK’s top French chefs, renowned for his passion, culinary expertise and innovation. He started his career early in life, working in a bakery in France from 14 and has since gained nearly 50 years of experience in the hospitality industry winning many awards along the way. 

Jean-Christophe is also loved for his charismatic TV appearances on shows such as Hell's Kitchen, Bravo’s Chef Academy USA, Guest Judge on Top Chef US, ITV’s Cooking with the Stars, UK, Celebrity Hunted UK and much more. In 2024 you’ll see Jean-Christophe bring his international experience to the Australia Masterchef kitchen as he joins the panel of judges.

Jean-Christophe's 7-year-old son, Valentino, was diagnosed with neuroblastoma at just 6 weeks old.

I am extremely humbled to be supporting Neuroblastoma Australia and the work they do to raise awareness and raise vital funds towards research and developing safer treatment for children. I look forward to working with this wonderful charity on something that is extremely close to both mine and my wife Michelle’s hearts. Jean-Christophe Novelli 

Our mission is to find a cure for neuroblastoma. We’re honoured Jean-Christophe is joining us as an advocate and collaborator, and we thank him and his team for supporting children with neuroblastoma.
