Did you watch Season 1 of "MasterChef" and think: "I could do that!"

Then listen up: Fox is bringing back its summer hit starring chef Gordon Ramsay as he goes about highlighting the unsung heroes of the culinary world -- home cooks.

Tryouts are being held in Los Angeles on Nov. 6, and will then move on to Boston; Chicago; Dallas; Denver; New Orleans; New York City; Orlando, Fla.; and Portland, Ore. No word on prizes yet, but Season 1 winner Whitney Miller, 22, walked off with $250,000 and her own MasterChef cookbook deal. We do know this much: Joe "Death Stare" Bastianich and Graham "Ain't My Glasses Funky?" Elliot will also return. Click here for more details.

What do you think? Will you audition? What's your signature dish?
