About MasterChef

Award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay, restaurateur Joe Bastianich and acclaimed chef Graham Elliot return for Season Four of the culinary smash hit MASTERCHEF. The three celebrated food experts will put the latest group of contestants through a series of exciting elimination rounds and turn one amateur cook into a culinary master. After conducting a nationwide search, the best home cooks in America will be flown to Los Angeles to present their signature dishes to the judges in hopes of earning a coveted MASTERCHEF apron. In the next round, the talented hopefuls who earned a white apron will be put to the ultimate test in an intense lamb challenge. Those who impress the judges with their dishes will earn spots in the MASTERCHEF kitchen and compete for the title of America’s next MASTERCHEF.

Once the auditions are over, the top home cooks will be put through their paces in a series of challenges designed to test their palates, food knowledge, passion and culinary skills. In the first field challenge, the home cooks will work in teams to prepare a healthy and balanced meal for more than 300 elementary school children. Later, the hopefuls will prepare a hearty meal for American heroes, travel to Las Vegas for the first time in MASTERCHEF history, cook for the cast and crew of GLEE, prepare beach-friendly fish tacos for 101 surfers, take command of a renowned fine dining restaurant and create a summer party menu for charity volunteers. As the competition intensifies, the pressure will mount as the home cooks compete for a large cash prize and, more importantly, the title of MASTERCHEF.
