Food Network’s ‘Chopped’ features Memphis nurse Krissie Scott

“Thank you, nurses!” is the theme of Tuesday night’s “Chopped” episode.

Memphis nurse Krissie Scott is one of four nurses invited to bring some TLC to the “Chopped” kitchen.

Scott jumped at the chance when she saw the casting call for the Food Network show. Being on a cooking show was a lifelong dream.

“‘I most definitely fit that category,’ I said to myself. I am a nurse, and I am a professional chef,” Scott said.

Scott, who goes by the nickname “The Cooking Nurse” on social media, splits her time between her two passions of nursing and cooking. She works part time as a nursing supervisor in a long-term care facility.  The rest of her time is spent cooking.

“Cooking is a universal language. In nursing, you are helping get someone healthy with nutritious meals so then they can enjoy and celebrate food once they are well,” Scott said, adding she is a nurturer by nature.
