Watch Now: Female Kenosha Competing On Fox’s “MasterChef: Legends” | State and regional


Rogers, who grew up in Zion, Ill., Was a fan of “MasterChef” before appearing on the show – “I watched every season. I love Gordon Ramsey and watch all of his shows” – but she truly credits her aunt, Lovie Goshay, for inspiring her to cook.

“My aunt went to culinary school and has a restaurant business,” Rogers said. “But more than that, she puts so much love on a plate. Dinner time for her is when she shows you how much she loves you. I took that too.”

The show describes Rogers’ “Signature Cuisine” as “Southern Comfort,” but when asked what that means, Rogers laughs.

“It was hard for me to find a ‘kitchen.’ I cook world-inspired comfort food; I don’t really have one type of food that I cook.”

To shut up

This season of “MasterChef” filmed in Los Angeles, ending in October 2020. (“We started in March, and it should have taken eight weeks, but we had to take a break and stop filming for a while because of COVID-19, “Rogers said.)

Which means Rogers knows who won, but she can’t say anything, not even about the next dessert episode. (“I’ll just say a lot of great desserts have been created.”)

During the shoot, the contestants all stayed at a hotel in Los Angeles, “and we all got to know each other really well,” Rogers said. “We are all still talking now. We have become very close.”
