A “MasterChef” fanatic, Justin knew the recipe for his perfect wish was to fly to Los Angeles to meet Chef Gordon Ramsay. After embarking on a grand tour of Universal Studios Justin and his entourage arrived at the “MasterChef” set.
Before Justin viewed the filming of show, he explored some of the studio treasures like the MasterChef champion trophy, the wardrobe department, and test kitchens. Justin never took his eyes off the stage as the chefs battled it out to be the next MasterChef champion. He loved his backstage privileges and was surprised by how many people it takes to put on a show. As filming ended, the best part of the day had yet to come; excitement reached a boiling point when Gordon Ramsay came over to teach Justin how to cook. Justin went home with new recipes, Chef Ramsay’s apron, cooking utensils and incredible memories that will last a lifetime.
His wish escort, Max Goldberg, said, “Throughout the day, and during the ride back to the hotel, Justin repeatedly said this was the best day ever.”
Justin’s father added, “The time the chef spent with Justin was amazing and the fact that they cooked together. It truly inspired him to pursue his dream of being a chef. Everyone and everything was perfect.”
