I have been selected as 1 of 100 amateur cooks to compete in front of judges Gordon Ramsay, Graham Elliot, and Joe Bastianich! Tune in on FOX for the 2-night season premiere on June 6th and 7th at 8 pm PDT (7 pm Central).
This is such an amazing opportunity! I am passionate about food and truly love and respect the art of cooking. It has always been a hobby and the inspiration to write on a blog and to share my recipes. But I have been given the chance to present one of my signature dishes to three of the most respected figures in the culinary world. Maybe this is the opportunity I’ve been waiting for?—one to make a career change and dedicate myself to cooking and nourishing others with my dishes from all over the world. Watch to see if I get an apron….

“MASTERCHEF” GETS COOKING MONDAY, JUNE 6, ON FOX
NATIONWIDE SEARCH BRINGS 100 AMATEUR COOKS TO LOS ANGELES TO VIE FOR COVETED TITLE
Top 18 Revealed Tuesday, June 14
Famed chef Gordon Ramsay is back for Round Two of his culinary smash hit and last summer’s highest-rated new series, MASTERCHEF, Monday, June 6 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. After conducting a nationwide search, 100 of the best amateur cooks in America, including a police officer, an oil rig engineer, an interior designer, a forklift operator, a professional poker player, a classical pianist and a tattoo shop owner, were flown to Los Angeles in the hopes of becoming the next MASTERCHEF and walking away with the life-changing grand prize.
In the premiere episode, the hopefuls will prepare their signature dishes and present them to the renowned MASTERCHEF judging panel: Michelin-starred chef Gordon Ramsay; restaurateur and wine maker Joe Bastianich; and the youngest four-star chef in America, Graham Elliot. The judges are looking for presentation, flavor, originality and creativity, but most importantly – to have a chance – every contender must possess an immense passion for food. The amateur cooks will be put through the paces, and only the most deserving among them will win the coveted white apron and move on to the next round of the competition. One thing is certain in MASTERCHEF: Winning will be no piece of cake.
On Tuesday, June 7 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) and Monday, June 13 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), the judges will continue to winnow down the Top 100 and ultimately reveal the Top 38. The competition heats up as more hopefuls are eliminated until the Top 18 are announced on Tuesday, June 14 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT).
