San Antonio chef Emily Hersch will appear in the upcoming season of Fox's “Hell’s Kitchen: Young Guns” with Gordon Ramsay.
Local foodies will soon have another reason to set their DVRs.
San Antonio chef Emily Hersh
of Jason Dady's Jardín Restaurant revealed Wednesday that she'll appear in the upcoming season of Fox TV's Hell’s Kitchen: Young Guns,
hosted by Gordon Ramsay.
Hersh's announcement comes weeks after Alamo City chef Mary Lou Davis landed in the finals
of Ramsay's other culinary competition show, plain old Hell's Kitchen
. And mere days after the Current reported
that Ocho chef Jesse Kuykendall will represent the SA on Food Network’s Chopped.
Hell’s Kitchen: Young Guns
features 18 chefs ages 23 and younger duking it out for a chance to be crowned head chef at a Ramsay-owned eatery in Las Vegas.
Hersh has cooked in metros including New York City, Las Vegas and Austin, cutting her teeth with big names in the industry including Dady and NYC chef Amanda Cohen.
Hersh is best known for her skills with vegetarian and vegan cuisine, but her Jardín boss Dady — an old hand at culinary competition shows — helped her navigate the intricacies of cooking meat ahead of her appearance.
The new season of Hell’s Kitchen: Young Guns
kicks off Monday, May 31. Members of the Hersh cheering squad can catch her at a Monday, June 7 viewing party — the first of many, we’re told — at Pearl-area eatery Alamo BBQ.
