San Antonio chef Nedra Harris joins the 20-contestant field for Season 11 of “Hell’s Kitchen,” celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay’s popular reality television cooking competition. The roster, revealed February 27, includes 10 female and 10 male chefs from across the United States.
"Hell's Kitchen" returns March 12 with its eleventh season debut, opening with a signature dish competition filmed before a live audience in Las Vegas.
Who is “Hell’s Kitchen” contestant Nedra Harris?
A Michigan native, 26-year-old Harris lives in San Antonio, Texas, where she works as a chef at the Chart House Restaurant atop the Tower of the Americas. But she still calls the Motor City “the place where I fell in love with food.”
In December 2012, Wendy Wofford-Garcia, a Texas food reviewer and blogger, offered this report about Harris after dining at the Chart House:
Not only is she a talented chef, she’s very engaging and friendly!
The “Hell’s Kitchen” Season 11 contestant’s signature dish is Honey-Glazed Lamb Chops with Grilled Potatoes.
Beginning March 12 at 8 p.m. ET. on Fox TV, the eleventh season of “Hell’s Kitchen” is themed “Get Out,” clearly quoting Ramsay’s oft-shouted phrase from every season of the show. Harris will compete against 19 other contestant cooks, aiming for a prime head chef position at Gordon Ramsay Pub & Grill at Las Vegas’ Caesars Palace under Executive Chef Jeremy Berlin.
