Helene Leeds from "MasterChef" is one of the top 18 contestants in Season 3 of the FOX reality cooking competition series. She is a 35-year-old health coach from Baldwin, Maryland.

Here is an interview with Helene Leeds ("MasterChef"):

Who was your first cooking inspiration?

My first cooking inspiration was my impassioned mother, Priscilla, who loved food tremendously and who shared her profound passion with me.

What is the first dish you ever mastered?

The first dish I mastered was Grandmother Tawes' Fudge, an Eastern shore family recipe. I remember being able to get the consistency just right so that when a test drop of fudge was put into a glass of water, it maintained its consistency.

What is your favorite thing to cook?

My favorite dishes to prepare are salads and raw super food brownies and cheesecakes. Yum!

What did you learn as a contestant on "MasterChef"?

I learned about competitive cooking. I learned that great chefs embody traits of organization, creativity, understanding of chemistry, artistic excellence, and execution. I also learned that, like yoga, in culinary arts there is a vast body of knowledge to embrace and grow within. The learning never ends and continues to evolve. More than anything though, I learned that being true to my heart and aligned with my food philosophy is the most important thing, regardless of what I think others like or want. "MasterChef" taught me where my limits exist and guided me to fill those gaps towards excellence.
