It’s no secret that San Diego is packed with culinary talent. Now, we get to watch how our city stacks up to the rest.
Just announced, four San Diegans have been cast for “MasterChef” season six, premiering on Wednesday, May 20 on FOX.
There are a total of 40 contestants this season representing 16 states. From San Diego comes Claudia Sandoval (events manager), Golzar Meamar (unemployed), Krista Scott (caregiver) and Remy Dambron (language instructor). A fifth contestant, Nick Nappi, lists his hometown as San Mateo, but currently lives in East Village.
The premiere episode will feature these chefs and more taking their kitchen talents to Los Angeles and presenting their signature dishes to the judging panel of Gordon Ramsay, Graham Elliot and newbie Christina Tosi, pastry chef and owner of New York City’s Milk Bar.
Contestants will compete for the title of MasterChef, a cookbook deal and a $250,000 grand prize.
Wishing these San Diego chefs best of luck!
