MasterChef to Hold Open Casting Call in Orlando

This is definitely the week to be in Orlando if you like to cook and want to be on television!

Last week, Food Network was in town holding a casting call for 24 Hour Restaurant Battle.  This week, it’s Gordon Ramsay’s turn.

Ramsay’s show “MasterChef” will be in town, holding auditions for Season 2 of the series, in which the celebrity chef, along with judges Joe Bastianich and Graham Elliot, coach, test, and critique contestants in a series of culinary challenges.  The winner walks away with a large cash prize.  While the amount is unspecified at present, last year’s winner, Whitney Miller, won $250,000 and the opportunity to have her own cookbook published.

Interested applicants should be “talented, everyday, at-home cooks.”  Auditions will be held on Saturday, November 20, from 10 a.m.- 6 p.m., at Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Academy, located at 8511 Commodity Circle, Orlando, Florida  32819.  For more information and to download the application, please visit the MasterChef website.
