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 […]
