Hell's Kitchen

WED 8/7c



Ray Alongi

  • When did you first start getting serious about cooking and why?

    I got series about cooking when I knew I could make people happy with what I do! I love the attention I attract through my dishes! I've had moments when I got burnt out with the business, but the cooking part of it has always excited me.

  • Why did you want to be a contestant on Hell’s Kitchen?

    I actually almost didn't go to the audition! One of my cooks told me they were looking for chefs for HK and I should go. My wife & daughters always said I had a similar attitude as Chef Ramsay and said I would be fun to watch in the same kitchen!

  • What was your favorite experience on Hell’s Kitchen?

    Working with all the great chefs on the set! The camaraderie, the stress, and of course working with Gordon Ramsay and the whole HELL’S KITCHEN team!

  • What is the most valuable lesson you learned from Chef Ramsay?

    Don't give up! Push forward, keep your head in the game and keep creating! Don't second guess yourself!

  • What is your favorite dish to cook and why?

    Pretty simple. It's fresh pasta with olive oil, crushed tomatoes, fresh basil & butter. Topped w/ fresh ricotta & Ma's Sunday salad all on the same plate!
