If you’ve got experience in the kitchen–as a caterer, cook, chef, or other culinary professional, its time you’ve gone through “Hell.” The now infamous series, “Hell’s Kitchen,” starring the always biting Gordon Ramsay, will be holding an open casting at the restaurant Dante in Cambridge on Wednesday, November 17 from 10AM to 2PM. Though Ramsay himself will not be in attendance, the show’s casting directors will, and will be looking for contestants to be on point in a number of areas.
Challengers be warned–in addition to being a master in the kitchen and camera-ready, you’ll have to have the guts to face verbal obliteration by Chef Ramsay on a daily basis. Boston-based chefs like Andy Husbands of Tremont 647 and Jason Santos of Gargoyles on the Square have both made recent appearances on the show, though with varying degrees of success.
“Hell’s Kitchen” is currently in its 8th season and airs on the Fox network. Unlike his newer show, “Master Chef,” which recently held auditions in Cambridge also, Ramsay expects “Hell’s Kitchen” contestants to be somewhat seasoned culinary professionals.
Interested contestants should be over 21, and arrive with their resume at the restaurant in person during the specified hours. Dante is located at 40 Edwin H. Boulevard in Cambridge, MA.
