MasterChef (premiering tonight at 9/8c on Fox) is kinda like American Idol but with a tasty twist: Amateur chefs compete for $250,000 and the chance to have their own cookbook published. Serving up the critiques to the home cooks, who'll be whittled down from 50 to 30 in the first two episodes? Caustic British culinary mastermind Gordon Ramsay, the sharp-tongued star of Hell's Kitchen. Here, he gives us the recipe for creaming the competition...
