    I heard that the trucks for the Great Food Truck Race were going to be in Chicago soon. My family loves the show. How can we be where they are serving?

  2. Lucie Mann says:

    When are you casting the Next FoodNetwork Star? Let me know…I want to apply.
    I am French Canadian and have a lot to offer the FoodNetwork Star. I am unique and full of ideas presented in a fun atmosphere. I am an Architect designer, so the journey of cooking and enjoying food is an art to be taught (by me) and the ultimate experience. French cuisine made easy is my specialty (french canadian dishes my grandmaman used to make). I am self-taught and cook everyday. Why do I know I am your girl? Because you have never met someone like me. luciemann@hotmail.com

    I love to cook, and I am sure that they could build a successful show around me! But I won't even watch Food Network after what they did to Paula Dean! I hope she starts her own network and puts Food Network out of business!

    How can you apply to be a location for "The Great Food Truck Race"?

    Come on food network.. Get back to your roots and BRING BACK CAKE CHALLENGE!!!
    But forget the stupid "extreme" crap… Make it about the cake!!!

    • Sharlyn says:

      I agree! I use to watch all those shows ALL the time and now I started my own little business out of my home and everything I learned was from watching the cake challenge. Now there is nothing on about cakes. So disappointing and I would love to be on it one day. BRING THEM BACK FOOD NETWORK!

    I've been told over and over I need to get on the Food Network. I am a self taught home cook that loves to entertain. I often host Supper Clubs with my foodie friends and go all out. We always have a theme (Breakfast for Dinner) and of course the attire, the menu, the décor and the music must all tie into the theme. We now have a waiting list of friends that want to be invited for the night. I would say I am a version of Tyler Florence meets Ina Garten. I love to cook simple, fresh and of course with beautiful ingredients. I relish in the composition of plating. I have enjoyed the Food Network for many years! When will you be casting for Bobby Flay's Dinner Battle?
