This is an opportunity for rising culinary starts to throw their toque in the ring!
The acclaimed Emmy Award winning Food Network is launching a new series, Food Chain.
This Food & Drink Examiner was contacted by the producers to share the news and recommend talented executive-level chefs and restaurant owners for consideration as a candidate.
According to the casting producer, "We're casting nationwide. The chefs need to be Executive Level chefs - but not jus any EC -- We're looking for the best - -Iron Chef level or very close to it."
She went on to detail they are seeking chefs who have been covered in the media - (not just this column!)
Eligible candidates should possess "sterling reputations and cutting edge knowledge," according to the Food Network.
Candidates should be rising culinary stars - the ones to watch who think they can beat almost anyone in a cook-off.
Because this is a competition, The Food Network is looking for chefs with both the talent and the competitive spirit to rise to the challenge. Contestants require knowledge, technique and creativity. Oh - and lots of confidence.
Casting begins now so feel free to contact the Food Network at the email noted. Or contact me and this Examiner can forward you the casting producer contact information.
This is the same team that produces The Great Food Truck Race and Guy's Grocery Game.
It looks like an exciting series and a chance to win $50,000. That's a lot of dough!
