Whitney Miller, the first season winner of the Gordon Ramsay television show MasterChef, is joining Winter Park’s Coop restaurant as chef de cuisine. Seeing as how Miller survived the histrionics of Ramsay, she should be able to put up with the polarizing mood swings of Coop owner John Rivers.
Miller will create recipes and spearhead seasonal menu changes for the Southern style quick-serve restaurant.
Miller will be on hand at the Coop booth at Saturday’s Cows ’n Cabs in Winter Park’s Central Park serving her Mississippi Mud Pie and previewing her latest cookbook. “I couldn’t be more excited to join the team at the Coop and work alongside someone as established and passionate about Southern cuisine as chef John Rivers,” Miller said in a statement. “I am looking forward to sharing some of my special dishes as well as creating some new local favorites.”
Miller, who lives in Plant City, will begin her duties at the Coop in November.
