Have you ever watched one of Gordon Ramsay's shows -- he's the temperamental chef who owns a string of restaurants and throws tantrums on such television tirades as Hell's Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares -- and thought, "I'd really love to see him try that shtick with me"?
Well, here's an opportunity to put your money where your mouth is. Ramsay and the producers of The Biggest Loser are putting together a new show, MasterChef, which will give one lucky amateur cook the chance to become a MasterChef -- whatever that means. (But it sounds fabulous.)
There'll be auditions in Denver tomorrow (Saturday, January 16) from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the International Culinary School at the Art Institute of Colorado, 675 South Broadway. Applicants must bring one prepared dish to be served at room temperature, plus any utensil or other material you might need, to the casting call.
To qualify, you must be eighteen or older and an amateur, meaning that if you get paid to cook, you won't make the cut. More information is available by visiting www.fox.com/casting.htm or e-mailing MasterChefDenver@gmail.com. Go get 'em, Colorado!
