Nona Sivley, the winner of Hell’s kitchen: Season Eight, officially claims her prize today, a position as chef de cuisine at Kerry Simon’s LA Market. Sivley’s last position was as a cook at Buckhead, Georgia’s Chops Lobster Bar, no doubt a different scene from the locavore cafe in Downtown L.A. That being said, Sivley will apparently be allowed to touch the menu, adding a few of her own dishes to Simon’s selections of sushi pizza and his popular junk food platter. Simon, the hard rocking chef who is starting to look a bit like Glenn Danzig in this photo with Sivley, will be mentoring the new hire, even though surviving Gordon Ramsay seems like the true trial by fire.
