Cooking MasterClass Discussion For MasterChef Season 6 Top 8: Getting A-Head In The Competition 


   Picture Credit: MasterChef/Fox Last week, Southern Cook Shelley was eliminated from MasterChef Season 8.  It was unfortunate because the dish she was tasked to create was a Southern dish – Fried Chicken and Waffles – and it was right in her wheel house.  I think knowing this created mental turmoil for her.  She wanted to […]

Cooking MasterClass Discussion For MasterChef Season 6 Top 12: Gordon’s Greatest Hits


  Picture Credit: MasterChef/Fox Those three – layer cakes on last week’s episode were hilarious.
