Recently, I mentioned that I was applying for the Next Food Network Star . At that time, the Food Network website invited candidates to email them a letter, explaining why they should be considered. I sent off a heartfelt letter and waited.
Today, in looking for show information for another show (I'm a Food Network junkie, if you hadn't already figured that out) I noticed a box for Next Food Network Star. This one states that you should send a video audition no later than October 31st, or come to an open call audition.
Oh, crap! Now I need to contact Chef's cooking school owner to see if her offer of videotaping still stands. Chef's return to cooking school is on hold until I am working again, so we haven't talked since late spring.
If she'll still game for taping my audition, then the hard part comes-figuring out what the heck I'm going to cook! Yes, I've worked on the recipes all year, but which one will tape the best? I have no idea. I have to figure it out, so that I can make an outline of what to say.
Those of you who've dined on my cooking, what do you suggest I make?
