PHOTOS: ‘MasterChef’ Ben Starr’s culinary journey started in Abilene with Rocky the Rooster

In Friday’s print edition, we had a story about Ben Starr, who’s on the current season of MasterChef and doing quite well, thank you very much. But before he was a TV celeb, he was a goofy poor kid from Abilene who liked to cook. Below are some pictures he has shared with us from his culinary past‚ as well as some commentary from Starr himself. The next episode of MasterChef airs tonight on Fox.
