SAVANNAH — Savannah Technical College will host an open casting call for the third season of Master-Chef from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19, at STC’s Savannah Campus on White Bluff Road.
“As one of the top culinary schools in the Southeast, we are honored that MasterChef has selected Savannah Tech to host its auditions,” STC President Kathy Love said.
“I am very proud of the outstanding program Chef Vendeville and his staff have developed at the Culinary Institute of Savannah. These auditions are an excellent opportunity for our students and a wonderful opportunity to showcase our culinary programs,” she said.
To be eligible, entrants must be 18 years or older on Feb. 1, 2012, a citizen or legal permanent resident of the United States and their main source of income cannot come from preparing and cooking fresh food in a professional environment (restaurant, hotels, food trucks, catering, etc).
