When Season 8 of MasterChef premieres on FOX this summer, chefs Gordon Ramsay and Christina Tosi will be joined by a new judge: James Beard Award-winning chef Aarón Sánchez, chef/owner of the Mexican restaurant Johnny Sánchez in New Orleans and Baltimore.
Sánchez is excited about joining Ramsay and Tosi. “For me, it’s a dream come true. I haven’t wanted something professionally this bad in a long time,” he says.
“Aarón Sánchez is a Mexican-American phenomenon,” says Ramsay. “What does he bring to the Gordon-and-Christina mix? Huge insight into stuff that I didn’t know.”
