The Top 18 cooks split up into two teams to prepare appetizers and entrées for Season 6 contestant Nick Nappi, his bride and their 72 wedding guests.
This season, host and award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay and acclaimed chef Graham Elliot welcomed judge Christina Tosi, owner and founder of New York City’s Milk Bar, and the 2015 James Beard Award winner for Outstanding Pastry Chef, to Season Six of MASTERCHEF. The three celebrated food experts have put the latest group of contestants through a series of challenging elimination rounds, in order to turn one home cook into a culinary master.
After a nationwide search, 40 of the best home cooks were flown to Los Angeles to present their signature dishes to the judges in a head-to-head challenge, with the goal of earning a coveted MASTERCHEF apron.
So far this season, the hopefuls have visited an amusement park to create amusement park-themed meals; cooked for Las Vegas jugglers, magicians and dancers; and visited a cattle ranch to prepare meals for ranchers and cowboys. Coming up later this season, the remaining contestants will take part in the series’ popular restaurant takeover, compete with judge-themed mystery boxes, and so much more. With each new challenge, the pressure mounts as the home cooks compete for the coveted title of MASTERCHEF, a cookbook deal and the $250,000 grand prize. Earlier this season, MASTERCHEF reached its milestone 100th episode.
