If you've always dreamed of going on television and being verbally assaulted by Gordon Ramsay, your opportunity is coming soon to South Florida.
MasterChef is casting for its fourth season. The Fox cooking competition features Ramsay mentoring amateur chefs who think they've got what it takes to make it in the professional culinary world.
Weekly elimination challenges are judged by Ramsay, Joe Bastianich, and Graham Elliot, with the winner receiving a quarter of a million dollars and a cookbook deal.
If you think you've got what it takes to be a MasterChef, head out to
the South Florida open casting on October 20 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Le
Cordon Bleu in Miramar.
You're requested to preregister online before
attending the open casting, where you're asked to bring a dish designed
to wow the judges -- no plate of food, no admittance!
Along with your dish, you're required to bring your own plates and utensils. You should also note that you
will have to reheat your dish before presenting it to the food
experts on hand to determine your fate.
Hint: Prepare a dish
that packs well, since it might be standing out for a while, and the best
way to ensure not getting on the show is to serve up a big heaping dish
of food poisoning.
To be a contestant, you must be at least
18 years of age as of Jamuary 1, 2012, a U.S. citizen or permanent
resident, and cannot have ever worked as a professional chef. Click here
