That’s when the Fox reality show, “Masterchef” will be casting for season 2 of its cooking competition where everyday people without any culinary background or training will compete to win a grand prize of $250,000 and will have their own “Masterchef” cookbook published.
The show, which is hosted by famous curmudgeon chef Gordon Ramsay, completed its first season in September when 22 year old Whitney Miller from Poplarville, MS won with her simple Southern fried chicken steak over David Miller, a software engineer from Boston, Massachusetts’ beef wellington.
