We hope you will be able to join us this Thursday, June 25th for #FoodTVChat with Amanda Saab because not only will you have the opportunity to chat with “the first headscarf-clad chef on prime time television” you will be able to chat with an all around fascinating chef competing on Season 6 of Gordon Ramsey’s Master Chef.
Yes, Amanda Saab is garnering some headlines about her headscarf or “hijab“, notably here and here. And yes for that she is indeed breaking new ground on American FoodTV but let’s move beyond the headlines and note that she is one fierce competitor on Master Chef and a very accomplished individual.
Amanda has been writing her food blog, Amanada’s Plate for over a year and it is as delightful as she is! She shares recipes created in her own kitchen and also advocates for the millions of kids who do not get enough to eat every day. Her day job is working as a clinical social worker focusing on women and children and she volunteers as a hunger relief agency.
And then there is Master Chef where Amanda is rocking it! Check out this highlight video. As of tonight’s Master Chef, Amanda is among the 18 finalists. By tomorrow night’s #FoodTVChat we will know even more, won’t we?! So catch Master Chef tonight and join #FoodTVChat with Amanda Saab tomorrow night at 7PM Eastern and enjoy your opportunity to connect with Amanda and your fellow FoodTV peeps. See you tomorrow!
