It’s Pie Style, Jack — An Interview with Rodney Henry

by in Interviews, August 15, 2013

Rodney Henry's Pie Style Finale PantsThere's no doubt about it: Rodney Henry is the Pie Man. What pie style is might still be out for debate, but this runner-up has proved to Food Network fans that whatever it is, it seems like a pretty good time. Through all the "suckers," "cool cats" and "it's pie style, jack," he's taken this season of Star and turned it upside down. Committed to staying true to himself, Rodney survived 10 weeks of competition to earn a spot among the final three competitors. While he ultimately came up short behind winner Damaris Phillips, there's no doubt that Rodney has star power.

Star Talk caught up with Rodney to chat about his time on Star, what he thought of the mentors and what fans can expect in the future.

by in Food Network Star, May 27, 2013

Rodney HenryYou heard it here first: Food Network Star is kicking off an all-new ninth season on Sunday, June 2 at 9pm/8c, and returning judge-mentors Alton BrownBobby Flay and Giada De Laurentiis will be there at the helm. This year the mentors are tasking 12 hopefuls with weekly Mentor and Star Challenges in the ultimate multi-month interview for the chance to earn their dream television job: their own show on Food Network. While the contestants bring with them a mix of backgrounds — including culinary school, restaurant management, private chef and food blogging — they have but one dream, which is to become the next Food Network Star. From now until next month's premiere, Star Talk will introduce one finalist a day until you, Star fans, meet them on camera during the show.

Owner of several Dangerously Delicious Pies shops, Rodney Henry, 47, lives in Baltimore, and he is known for challenging the meaning of everyday pies by creating sweet and savory interpretations of this all-American classic. This father of two is a former musician who's appeared on multiple Food Network shows, including Chopped, Down Home With the Neelys and Paula's Home Cooking.
