Tomorrow, master restaurateur, Joe Bastianich will be holding a casting call to see if anyone in Dallas has what it takes to be a master chef. Co-host of Fox’s hit series, MasterChef, Bastianich has been dubbed the “Simon Cowell of the Food Industry” so aspiring master chefs might want to bring their A-game and some thick skin.
When I spoke with him yesterday he said that he expects great things from Dallas. “Our last winner was from Texas and we, generally, always get great results from Texas,” he said. I was surprised to learn that MasterChef is not about who has the best culinary background or technique. Bastianich expressed that the show is about good food and chefs that love what they do.
With that said, I’m officially calling out all chefs of the DFW area to come out tomorrow from 10 a.m-6 p.m. to Le Cordon Blue at 11830 Webb Chapel Road Dallas, TX 75234. Who knows? You just may walk away with a spot on Season Four of MasterChef to compete for $250,000 and a cookbook deal. Sounds pretty delicious if you ask me.
