CHEF GORDON RAMSAY NAMES TOP 4 CHEFS ON "HELL'S KITCHEN"
Corey Earling, Jen Gavin, Christina Machamer and Louis Petrozza Compete for Coveted Position Tuesday, June 17, on FOX
The competition has been simmering all season and last night Chef Gordon Ramsay announced the Top 4 chefs who will compete for a senior chef position at Gordon Ramsay at The London West Hollywood.
Corey Earling, Jen Gavin, Christina Machamer and Louis Petrozza have sliced and diced their way to the Top 4, but will need to continue to sharpen their skills if they want to be the last chef standing in HELL'S KITCHEN. Ramsay describes the Top 4 chefs as "some of the best we've ever had...ambitious, very determined and very focused individuals."
The final four chefs compete head-to-head as they race to feed 80 very hungry, very picky and very pregnant moms-to-be Tuesday, June 17 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. Renowned chefs Mark Peele from Campanile and Ben Ford from Ford's Filling Station prepare dishes and offer advice to the challenge winner.
The Top 4 chefs had this to say about what they learned from the experience and from Chef Ramsay:
Corey Earling � "...to be humble in life and in the kitchen. Being overly confident takes away all the energy and creativity you need to get the job done." Earling is a private chef from Brooklyn, NY.
Jen Gavin � "...that simplicity is the key. I'm super-creative, and I sometimes try to put too much on a plate. Chef Ramsay taught me to keep it clean and simple." Gavin is a line cook from Chicago, IL.
Christina Machamer � "...this whole experience taught me what I was made out of and what standards mean in relation to food. I have not found that level anywhere else." Machamer is recent culinary school graduate from St. Louis, MO.
Louis Petrozza � "...to evolve my entire style of cooking. Bigger is not always better. It's about concentrating on smaller-portioned, stand-alone items with great flavor combinations." Petrozza is a catering director from Charlotte, NC.
HELL'S KITCHEN is produced by Granada America in association with A. Smith & Co. Arthur Smith and Kent Weed serve as executive producers.
