Susie Speaks: Steps Toward Joining the Club

 Susie Fogelson, Next Food Network Star Judge Watch Susie tell why the Supper Club scene matters

Do you Supper Club? Susie hadn't before this week's episode, and neither had I--dinner out or in with friends, sure, but not as an exclusive foodcentric standing date. So it wasn't surprising that some fans balked during Sunday night's chat.

How is cooking a posh multicourse meal for a few dozen hipsters helpful to home cooks? In a get-it-only-here vlog, Susie Fogelson, senior VP of marketing and brand strategy, reiterates the importance of a Food Network star's versatility. He or she has to be able to cook and present food well, but also to present him- or herself well, too, regardless of the audience. Razzle-dazzle diners set an appropriately high bar, Susie says. "They were hip--one was hipper than the next," she adds. "Our star needs to be able to hold their own in that crowd and not be intimidated." Hear extra insights from Susie about why Aria wobbled, then see which of the finalists impressed guest Chef Michael Cimarusti, of Providence LA, as having a "true sense of self." Star power is revving up.

What challenge so far do you think best sets up the finalists for Food Network stardom?

  1. Things i have seen in terms of computer memory is the fact there are technical specs such as SDRAM, DDR and many others, that must match the features of the motherboard. If the personal computer抯 motherboard is fairly current while there are no operating-system issues, changing the memory literally takes under sixty minutes. It抯 one of several easiest personal computer upgrade techniques one can picture. Thanks for giving your ideas.

  2. You created some great points there. I did a search on the subject and hardly located any certain details on other web sites, but then terrific to be right here, seriously, thanks.

    You are a beautiful, sophiscated, sharp woman, but please leave the jeans at home for outdoor gardening. Not a good look this past week and why are you and Bob soooo mean towards Nikki. Looks very unfair to me.

    Making you cry obviously sets up a contestant for Food Network Stardom. You need a therapist.
