Demo is one in a series planned by the Ray Charles Program for African American Material Culture
(NEW ORLEANS, LA) – Former Dillard student and Fox-Television cooking series Master Chef contestant Christian Green will be featured in a cooking demonstration Sept. 25, 11 a.m. to
1:30 p.m. in Kearny Dining Hall on Dillard’s campus.
Green’s passion for cooking began when he started watching his mother cook in the kitchen. His craft was perfected during teen and young adulthood working at various New Orleans restaurants and retirement home dining facilities.
The Fox-Television cooking series MasterChef held an open call in New Orleans and Green was selected to compete against 29 other chefs selected nationwide for Season 5 episodes taped in Los Angeles. Green was among the top five remaining contenders. Green’s culinary skills and knack for well-seasoned and beautifully cooked meat entrees helped him succeed on the show.
Green attended Dillard University between 2006 and 2009, majoring in business and finance. He left school before graduating in order to provide for his son, Caiden, who was born in 2007.
The demonstration is open to the public with a cost of $8 (without a meal card) for lunch that includes the entrée that Chef Green will demonstrate in honor of Chef Leah Chase, matriarch of New Orleans’ creole cuisine. For more information call Zella Palmer at
