America Cooks makes its third stop in La Quinta, CA, where Chef Jimmy Schmidt helms Morgan’s in the desert. Chef Jimmy has a unique and innovative food philosophy that focuses heavily on nutrition and health, which makes him a perfect pair with our contestant Jordan. Jordan is a Louisiana native who moved to Arlington, VA for work a few years ago. She’s struggled to maintain a healthy weight since getting engaged and married, and she wants to achieve a diet that works for her. Together, they’ll be making apple-chanterelle ravioli with pan-seared beef tenderloin.
