Do you have what it takes to be the next celebrity chef? Our announcement that the Food Network would be holding a casting call for Food Network Star in Denver on November 1 inspired a number of Howie haters to pop up -- and several people to toss their toque in the ring....
Shhhh, keep it a secret. If the execs at the Food Network found out, they'd be beating down my door. With the pastiness of Bobby Flay, the vocabulary of Guy Fieri, the disproportionate head size of Giada, the mom issues of Bobby Deen, the laugh of Michael Symon and the cooking skills of Rachel Ray... I'd be a lock.
For the record, the Food Network says it's "looking for those with a captivating personality who believe they're at the top of the culinary game and want to inspire a Food Network audience through their passion for food and cooking." Find more details here -- and feel free to nominate your own favorite Denver personalities (or yourself!) below.
