Must be that time of year cause there are 2 TV castings:  Master Chef and Food Network Star


Saturday 10/20/12
Le Cordon Bleu
3221 Enterprise Way
Miramar, FL 33025

It’s so funny that Fox TV asked me to help spread the word, cause I watched the UK program on my recent trip to London. It was definitely a good watch cause  the Japanese scientist, Aki sculpted a bento box extravaganza! I can’t believe she did that in under 1 1/2 hours!  If you’ve not watched this episode, you really must.

Anyhow, Fox TV is here to cast for the USA series, so if you’ve always fancied trying a hand at being on TV and cooking infront of some judges (yup, Gordon Ramsey is one of them!), here’s your chance…

Fox’s hit series MASTER CHEF are looking for AMATEUR HOME COOKS (I think this is contradictory?) who have a love and passion for food and cooking!  Applicants do not have to be culinary trained or be a professional chef.

This is an amazing opportunity!!  Please spread the word. (please see flyer)
