Competitors battle Iron Chef America style Tuesday night on Food Network Star

The hugely popular series Food Network Star has returned to Food Network Canada with the most star-studded season yet.

Hosted by Bobby Flay and Giada DeLaurentiis, and aided by a selection committee including Food Network executives Bob Tuschman and Susie Fogelson, Food Network Star follows 15 finalists as they compete in a series of food-related challenges for the chance to host their own show on Food Network.

Tension rises as the four finalists enter Tuesday night’s challenge to battle it out Iron Chef America style. Food Network’s Alton Brown explains that two finalists will battle in Kitchen Stadium creating dishes inspired by a secret ingredient while the other two act as commentators trying to outdo each other’s knowledge and finesse, and then the pairs switch roles. Iron Chef Michael Symon joins the intense action as a guest judge, and the heat is on in this head-to-head battle as the competitors taste and judge each other’s food for the first time this season!

Tune in to Food Network Star Tuesday, August 16th at 9pm ET/10pm PT on Food Network Canada to find out whose cuisine will reign supreme and advance to the season finale to battle for a chance to be a Food Network Star!  An encore presentation of this episode will air Sunday, August 21st at 3pm ET/12pm PT on Food Network Canada.
