Fox’s Master Chef first premiered in July 2010 and quickly became the summer’s hottest new show. Billed as the American Idol of cooking competitions, Master Chef pits 50 amateur cooks from across the country in a head-to-head battle for culinary supremacy. Gordon Ramsay, star of the network's other reality food shows Hell's Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares, produces and hosts Master Chef along with judges Joe Bastianich and Graham Elliot.
The winner of Master Chef receives a cash prize and a deal for his or her own cookbook; Modern Hospitality is the first cookbook to come from one of the show’s alumni—Season One Winner Whitney Miller.
Known as the fresh-faced Mississippi belle whose demure demeanor belied nerves of steel and serious cooking chops--fans watched Whitney transform traditional Southern recipes into elegant, contemporary dishes. In Modern Hospitality, Whitney offers her twist on the classic dishes passed down throughout generations of Southern women and shows home cooks that you don’t have to use a pound of butter or own a deep fryer to create a taste of the South. In addition to sharing more than 75 original recipes that showcase regional ingredients and authentic flavors, Whitney also shares her stories of family, tradition, and easy entertaining techniques sure to turn even the most casual gathering into a special occasion.
