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.
In Tuesday night’s episode of Food Network Star, season five Star winner, Melissa d’Arabian (Ten Dollar Dinners), kicks off the episode by challenging each of the 11 remaining finalists to create an amuse bouche in 45 minutes for a special guest using cereals, toaster pastries, and snacks along with other items typically found in a home kitchen.
Guest star Michael Symon (Iron Chef America) joins the contestants as they present their dishes one-by-one.
Then, it’s off to the set of ABC’s hit series Cougar Town where the finalists are divided into five teams and challenged to create an on-set meal for the cast and crew. Each team must tailor their meal to the department they are assigned and Paula Deen (Paula’s Best Dishes), Courteney Cox, show creator Bill Lawrence and other cast members are on hand to evaluate the final product.
