Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Remember that laser beam in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory that turned a commercial's candy bar into reality? Well, L.A.- based company Pop-Up Pantry is making that fantasy come to life with a new partnership with MasterChef.

Starting with tonight's episode, you can pre-order the food that the home cooks are preparing on the show and have it delivered to your door -- without Gordo screaming his head off at you, of course.

Thankfully they are in the latter half of the season, and the majority of duds have likely been weeded out. Having cast for these types of reality shows, trust us when we say that you wouldn't want to be eating the dishes they're making at the beginning of the season.

Starting tonight through the finale episode airing Monday, Sept. 10 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), viewers can go online to pre-order their meals, which will be delivered on either Sept. 26, 27 or 28.
