Belchertown Chef Impresses on Hell’s Kitchen

marypoehneltBELCHERTOWN, Mass. (WGGB) — It was another night in Hell’s Kitchen for Belchertown’s Mary Poehnelt.

In the beginning of the episode the chefs had to catch a live animal. The kind of animal they caught represented what protein they’d cook within the challenge.

Mary caught, appropriately, a little lamb.

But her lamb was raw when she presented it to Chef Gordon Ramsay disappointing him and her team.

Mary bounced back though during service earning Chef Ramsay’s praises, and the praises of her team.

Mary continued to impress throughout the night even helping out the guys on the opposing team at one point.

Overall, she did Western Mass. proud tonight and continues her run on Hell’s Kitchen which airs Tuesday evenings on FOX.
