Boulud, Ducasse and Savoy guest judges on ‘MasterChef’
NEW YORK, Aug 29 — French culinary titans Daniel Boulud, Alain Ducasse and Guy Savoy will share the stage tonight as judges on the US cooking reality show “MasterChef”.
You can almost hear the platform groan under the collective weight of their Michelin stars — 33 between them all — and their gastronomic clout.
The three of them — referred to by show host Gordon Ramsay as “VVIP guest judges” — will appear on the episode and judge the dishes of the four remaining competitors on the show.
“I mean, there are guys out there who would cut their leg off to cook for one of these guys and I’m cooking for all three,” said one competitor. “Man, it’s amazing.”
Unlike Bravo’s “Top Chef”, in which professional chefs are thrown in the proverbial fire pit, the Fox broadcast version “MasterChef” crowns the best amateur home chef across the US.
This year, 30,000 people across the country auditioned for “MasterChef”.
