Churchill’s Head Chef Still in the Fire on Hell’s Kitchen!

Posted on April 8, 2014 by

Churchill’s Head Chef Mike DeMarco has prevailed to Round 5 on Hell’s Kitchen Season 12.

Churchill’s Pub in Savannah, Georgia continues its support for their Head Chef and Hell’s Kitchen contestant, Mike DeMarco. Chef DeMarco has been on the chopping block for the first four episodes but has managed to remain in the fire. People can join in the fun each Thursday, as Churchill’s Pub hosts its weekly Hell’s Kitchen viewing parties.

“Each week is full of excitement, stress and a few expletives from Chef Ramsay,” says DeMarco. “I really appreciate the support that I get from the staff at Churchill’s, and from my friends, family and Churchill patrons that come to watch Hell’s Kitchen there with me.”

Contestants on the show have been divided into two teams: The Blue Team (all the men) and The Red Team (all the women). Tempers fly off the handle as these chefs try to stand out and rise to the challenge of Chef Ramsey’s high standards. “Chef Ramsay is one of the world’s best chefs and he demands perfection and won’t settle for anything less,” DeMarco adds.

DeMarco started out as a teenager working in a local pizza joint in his hometown of Dumore, Pennsylvania. He went on to earn his associate’s degree in Culinary Arts from Johnson and Wales University, eventually working at Elmhurst Country Club and Eagle’s Nest at Bloody Point among other restaurants.

Churchill’s Pub & Restaurant’s owner, Andy Holmes, is delighted of how far Chef DeMarco has gone on Hell’s Kitchen. “Getting on the show in the first place is remarkable in and of itself. No matter what happens on this season of Hell’s Kitchen all of us at Churchill’s are very proud for him,” Holmes says.

This week, one person from the live viewing party will be selected to win a $25 gift card to Churchill’s Pub. Those watching at home can still join the conversation and show their support on Twitter using hashtag #HellsKitchen and #TeamDemarco. Chef DeMarco also live tweets from his account @MikeDeMarco, and so does Churchill’s from at @ChurchillsSav.
