If you’ve ever found yourself watching Food Network in your living room and thinking, “I can do that, too,” or, “I want try what they’re doing on television,” now is your chance to go from Food Network viewer to on-air contestant.
We’re currently accepting applications for the fourth season of Tyler Florence‘s The Great Food Truck Race — the multi-week showdown that challenges food truck teams to outsell one another in a coast-to-coast road trip — plus an all-new competition series hosted by Tyler, Food Court Wars. Whether you’re an experienced restaurant chef or a novice home cook, if you think you have the dedicated passion, enthusiasm and charisma to impress Tyler and a national audience, we want to hear from you.
Cooking Channel is also looking for future guests. Mo Rocca’s My Grandmother’s Ravioli is casting a second season’s worth of grandmas and grandpas with tried-and-true recipes and creative food points of view, while an upcoming food- and travel-focused show is seeking those with prominent online voices related to food or restaurants.
Think you or a family member could be the best fit for these roles? Read on below to find more information about each show and get the latest details on how to apply.
The Great Food Truck Race
We are currently searching for teams of three from all walks of life — trained chefs, amateur chefs, line cooks, sous chefs, home cooks and dedicated foodies — to compete for the chance to own and operate their very first food truck.
Food Court Wars
Passionate about food? Always dreamed about owning an eatery of your own? Do you have a foolproof idea for a locally inspired, original food court hot spot? We are looking for two-person teams that believe they have the winning formula to successfully run an original food court restaurant. Series hosted by acclaimed chef Tyler Florence.
My Grandmother’s Ravioli
Calling grandmas and grandpas who are great home cooks! Mo Rocca (CBS Sunday Morning, Wait, Wait … Don’t Tell Me!) wants you to teach him your favorite and/or unique recipes. If you caught the first season of My Grandmother’s Ravioli on Cooking Channel, you know that Mo Rocca never had the opportunity to learn the secrets to his grandmother’s famous ravioli. Do you think your grandmother or grandfather could teach Mo how to cook great food? We want to know!
