Chef Jorge Gomez appears on "Chopped"

Chef Jorge Gomez, a corporate chef and partner at Humble Pie and Humble Bistro is competing on Food Network’s “Chopped: Casino Royale XL: Battle Four,” airing on Jan. 24.

In this competition, the contestants are allowed to gamble away an ingredient they don’t like to cook with. For example, one basket features something called “goat water.”

But giving away an ingredient does not guarantee getting back a better ingredient. It depends on what number the players roll. Odd numbers result in a worse ingredient, while even numbers bring better ones.

Born in Hermosillo, Mexico, Gomez graduated from the Culinary Institute of Mexico in Puebla. But his love of cooking started even early. At a young age he learned the secrets of the kitchen from his grandmother.
