Food Stories From the Road
Whether it’s in the kitchen or in the field, a Food Network Star is always describing food in a way that brings it to life - helping viewers feel as if they are experiencing the dish first hand. The finalists create an Italian-themed dish using one of three Buitoni® products and present in groups of two with a twist: they must present their opponent’s dish instead of their own. The contestants are then divided into teams to film a three-minute ‘food-story show’ about two establishments – a pizza joint and a donut shop. The shows are then screened and critiqued by a team of Star-makers: The Hollywood Reporter Editorial Director Janice Min and Senior Writers Gary Baum and Leslie Bruce. The team voted least successful lands in the bottom three, with one finalist heading home.
