Pennsylvania chef Jon Scallion has been named to the 20-contestant field of Season 11 for celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay’s reality television cooking series, “Hell’s Kitchen.” The roster, unveiled February 27, includes 10 female and 10 male chefs from across the United States.
The popular program returns March 12 with a signature dish competition, filmed before a live audience in Las Vegas, to mark its eleventh season on Fox TV.
Who is “Hell’s Kitchen” contestant Jon Scallion?
Residing in York, Pennsylvania, 27-year-old Scallion works as a chef de cuisine. The Keystone State native attended Pennsylvania State University.
The “Hell’s Kitchen” Season 11 contestant’s signature dish is Seared Scallops and Foie Gras with Truffle and Smoked Gouda Risotto. Still, if “Hell’s Kitchen” Season 11 hosts a Korean theme night, fans can only hope the Central Pennsylvania chef will whip up a batch of Pa Jon scallion pancakes.
Airing on Tuesdays, beginning March 12 at 8 p.m. ET, the eleventh season of “Hell’s Kitchen” is themed “Get Out,” quoting one of Ramsay’s heated exclamations from every coveted head chef position under Executive Chef Jeremy Berlin at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Las Vegas’ Caesars Palace.
