Food cooked by some of the winners of Fox’s “MasterChef” is going to be available to order via GrubHub, but only in 20 markets nationwide. Bridgeport is one of them.

Called “MasterfChef Table,” the new promotion lets diners in certain cities across the country order dishes from menus created by past MasterChef winners and contestants. In Connecticut, food will be delivered around the Bridgeport area. Nationwide, it will be available in large metro areas like Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York City and Washington, D.C.

Chef Dorian Hunter — the first African American female winner and the oldest contestant to win the show in season 10 — said she’s excited for the Bridgeport to try her dishes: Down South Quesadilla, Bangin Buffalo Chicken Fries and Italian Hoagie Burger (The Dorian Burger). The menu items for her MasterChef Table offerings in Bridgeport came from the inspiration of fans and family.

“With the power of social media, fans were able to tell me what they wanted me to put in the quesadilla and it worked,” she said. “My favorite are the Bangin Buffalo Chicken Fries.”

The experience creating the foods for GrubHub was not like on the show because the chefs had full control over hand-creating what they wanted to offer customers.

“This is amazing. A lot of the time, I get ‘Chef Dorian, I wish I could try your food,’ and now they can have it,” said Hunter. “I might not be cooking it, but you can have something that is tangible. You can’t get to me or hire me? Now you can experience some of me.”

Marnie Boyer, vice president of restaurant acquisition at Grubhub, said in a press release that offering MasterChef table helps expands their delivery services.

“We’re always looking for ways to deliver new experiences to diners,” Boyer said. “Our partnership with MasterChef gives them exactly that, a seat at the table in the comfort of their home.”
