Calling All Home Cooks: Are You America’s Best Amateur Chef?

by in Community, Shows, October 9th, 2013

Now Casting for a New Food Network ShowThere’s one in seemingly every family: That guy or gal who’s known unofficially as the “chef” and is constantly called upon to bake relatives’ birthday cakes, cater impromptu gatherings, host holiday suppers and bring the featured recipe to a potluck. They’re passionate about spending time in the kitchen, look forward to experimenting with new recipes, flavors and ingredients, and they’re unapologetic Food Network fanatics. If this sounds like you, then Food Network wants to hear from you.

The network is currently casting for a brand-new upcoming series that will show off the cooking chops of amateur chefs from around the country. But to be successful on the new show, it won’t be enough to simply follow a recipe. Home cooks must work alongside favorite Food Network stars, and together these regional teams will face off against one another in a series of fierce culinary competitions. At the end of the contest, a single amateur chef will ultimately be named America’s best home cook, earning coast-to-coast bragging rights and a generous cash prize.

There are two ways to apply for the show:

1. Send an email. To be considered, please include your city and state in the subject line of the email. In the body, please include your name, phone number and current occupation, plus a description of your cooking skills, a recent photo, a few photos of dishes you have created and an explanation of why you think you have what it takes to win.

2. Attend an open casting call at one the below locations. To be considered, please bring with you a prepared savory dish.
