Want to be on star chef Gordon Ramsay’s new reality show? You’ll have to get past Suchita Vadlamani and Chadwick Boyd first.
The Good Day Atlanta co-hostess and food stylist have been tapped to serve as the advance screening team at the casting call for “Master Chef,” which will be from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Jan. 16 at Viking Culinary Arts Center in Buckhead.
The show, already a hit in the U.K. and Australia, is crossing the pond to join the American roster of reality shows. It’s billed as an opportunity for “wannabe chefs who simply cook as a hobby and have absolutely no experience in the food industry” to be put through Ramsay’s culinary wringer
Those who make it past regional casting calls like the one Vadlamani and Boyd will be overseeing next weekend “will be put through the paces with various challenges as they compete head-to-head to create delicious dishes,” a statement from Fox said.”The series will serve as a unique platform for people from all walks of life who want to follow their dream of working as a professional chef. These everyday at-home cooks will have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to show their passion and excitement for food as they are put to the test and judged by world-renowned chefs.”
Translation: why be satisfied with compliments on your cooking from family and friends when you can have the irascible Ramsay screaming at you instead?
