The end has come for Lauren Scott, a Buchanan High School graduate, on the ABC reality competition show “The Taste.” She was not named Tuesday night as one of the four competitors who will advance to the finals on the cooking competition series.
The theme of the latest challenge, “Seduction,” required the amateur chefs to create a dish from pre-selected seductive ingredients. Ingrid Hoffman, restaurateur and TV personality, was the guest judge for the night. Scott, a home chef who now lives in Laurel, Miss., failed to impress the panel enough during the blind taste test to keep her in the game.
The show features four celebrity mentors — Anthony Bourdain, Nigella Lawson, Ludo Lefebvre and Brian Malarkey — who selected four chefs to be on their teams during the initial auditions. Scott was selected to be part of Lawson’s group and was the last member of the original four left standing.
Competition continues at 9 p.m. Tuesday.
