There’s something relaxing about treating yourself to a nice homemade dinner. The time and effort you put into you meal tastes like a big bowl of love. What if you knew deep down inside your home cooking skills were meant for life outside your home. The time and energy you spent on honing your natural techniques and talents were meant for a bigger stage meant to feed a larger audience.
That’s when Shanika Patterson decided it was time to put aside her Miami event promoting position and test her skills in not just any kitchen but the Masterchef kitchen. Dazzling chef Gordon Ramsay, acclaimed chef Aarón Sánchez and renowned restaurateur Joe Bastianich, Patterson quickly advanced through the many challenges including battling a crab dish while being allergic to seafood.
The Koalition sat down with Patterson to discuss the many surprises of Masterchef season nine, her competitors and the joys of cooking.
Masterchef airs Wednesdays, at 8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT.
