The latest Fox-Gordon Ramsay venture is a show called MasterChef which, according to its producers (creators of The Biggest Loser), “celebrates great people who make great food.” MasterChef “will give contestants the opportunity to develop their cooking skills while being encouraged, mentored and celebrated by the industry’s best.” (Translation: MasterChef will give contestants the opportunity to be ritually humiliated by the industry’s most ill mannered and foul mouthed.)
The producers will not consider anyone who works in a professional and applicants must be at least 18. To audition, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and include name, age, occupation, current photo, contact number and a brief description of your cooking experience and style. Put the city and state your reside in the subject of the email. Or, better yet, attend the Long Island casting call:
Sunday January 10, 2010, 12 to 5 p.m.
Sur La Table, 1468 Northern Boulevard, Manhasset
All casting call applicants must bring one prepared dish to be served at room temperature and are responsible for bringing any utensils or necessary serving utensils.
For more information, visit Fox’s casting site or e-mail MasterChefNewYork@gmail.com.
