Rachael Ray is looking for a few good wannabe cooks.
The energetic talk-show host is launching “So You Think You Can Cook?” — a nationwide search for an enterprising foodie.
“We just want to give a person — a real person, not a chef or somebody specially trained to do this for a living — a shot at showing everybody their personality and how much fun you can have with food,” Rachael said in a telephone interview Wednesday with The Associated Press.
Rachael and her producers will choose five finalists who will compete against each other for two weeks before a winner announced on the air in late November.
The winner of the contest will co-host Rachael’s talk-show for a day and receive training at a U.S. culinary institute. An original recipe will be published in one of Rachael’s magazines.
