    Colleen - Season 5

    Colleen

    Hometown: Papillion, NE

    Age: 41

    Occupation: Cooking School Instructor

    Experience:
    ٭ Chef/Owner/Instructor, The Classy Gourmet
    ٭ Cooking demo for Cox

    Kitchen Experience: 14 years

    Culinary School: Self-taught


    This happy-go-lucky, "A" personality type chef maintains that she did not choose cooking as a profession, but that it chose her. Colleen currently owns and runs her own cooking school. This self-employed mother of 3 has gotten by with not only her bubbly personality, but her strong cooking skills. Always a perfectionist, she calls people that do not know anything about food "food idiots." Colleen is a team player, and a doer, and wants to continue her culinary journey in Hell's Kitchen.

    she looks good for 41. Kinda perky looking though. Ramsey usually squashes the perky right out of people.

    I have seen this lady on the local TV stations here in Omaha, NE giving cooking demos for many years. She seems to know what she is doing in the kitchen, she gives clear instructions while she is preparing & cooking the recipes, and the food always looks yummy during her presentations.

    I'm looking forward to seeing her compete then.

    That's the first word that popped into my head when I saw her as well....perky. From the post that stated that she does well with the tv cooking demos I'm interested to see how she does on the show.

    I watched a clip from another web site. She teaches cooking but has no line experience. I think she is going to be in trouble from Day 1.

    Here's her cooking school in Omaha.

    The Classy Gourmet Culinary Arts Center : Omaha, NE

    There is also a link to some interviews with her about her time spent on the show.

    Yes, that interview was in our Omaha paper. I'm anxious to watch now that someone local is on the show.

    I was LMAO when she told Ramsey that she also teaches manners. I thought he was gonna toss her out on her ear right then and there.
