Local Chef Christina Wilson Wins “Hell’s Kitchen”
Christina Wilson, former chef de cuisine at Mercato, has won the tenth season of Fox’s “Hell’s Kitchen”. Wilson quit her job at Mercato towards the beginning of the “Hell’s Kitchen” season but insisted that it had nothing to do with the show. As the season champ, Christina Wilson will become the executive chef at Gordon Ramsay Steak at the Paris hotel in Las Vegas.
While at West Chester and Temple University Wilson waited tables where she began cooking by picking up lessons from the kitchen. The 32 year old Jersey native had previously cooked at Lolita and Carmine’s Creole Cafe in Havertown. She beat out Justin Antiorio in the final round of elimination for the $250,000 gig in Las Vegas.
Since she finished filming the season Wilson has said she was working on a project at the Jersey Shore, and instead she’s off for Vegas. Congratulations Christina!
