America fell in love with Detroit native, Yachecia Holston on MasterChef Season 8 – it was undeniable! Her ability to capture the hearts of millions through her cooking and her encouragement came natural. This is no surprise, as she started cooking and the age of 9 with her mom. The southern preacher spent her summers cooking with her Great-Great Aunt Ann & Grandmother Mattie Lee Jackson in Nashville, TN. This laid the groundwork for her passion in the kitchen. Yachecia’s MasterChef journey was a personal victory of following her dreams. Beating over 35,000 people, Yachecia soared to finish in the Top 5 of MasterChef Season 8. Yachecia has taken her “sassy southern fusion” cooking style into the homes of professional NBA and NFL athletes, she teaches workshops, hosts monthly pop-up shops, and offers 5 course dining experiences as a private/personal chef.

We had a great night. We were cooking in 3 different kitchens as a Christmas present to my dad. The experience was wonderful! Yachecia was incredibly personable. She remembered all our names, she checked in on each of us before moving on, was an excellent communicator before the event. Most of all the meal was yummy!!! My whole family loved it!
