UK Today News: MasterChef Winner 2010 – Whitney Miller Wins Season 1, To Publish Cookbook
Master Chef Winner 2010 – Mississippi student Whitney Miller has become the first ever MasterChef winner on Chef Gordon Ramsay’s new cooking competition show. The first season of the U.S MasterChef show saw amateur cooks from different professions competing to become the next best chef.
Whitney Miller is a student of the University of Southern Mississippi and studies nutrition and biology. As the MasterChef winner, she goes on to win $250,000 as well as the chance to create her very own cookbook.
After a very close chance of losing out with a culinary disaster, she gave her all to her dish (country fried chicken, turnip green pesto, white chocolate bread pudding and corncake) and after winning the competition Whitney said: “My seven-minute chicken recipe is definitely going in the cookbook.”
Whitney was the youngest contestant of this season, and she told reporters that she always wanted to join a culinary school, but gave up on her dream because of fears that she would not be able to manage her career.
