The Next Food Network Star is holding a Denver casting call

Are you the Food Network's next star? The Next Food Network Star, the culinary reality series that will wrap up its current season on Sunday, is holding an open casting call in Denver for the first time. "We are looking for people who are full of personality, passionate about cooking and knowledgeable about food to meet us in person," says casting producer Alena Jemas. "Anyone is welcome: chefs, line cooks, home cooks, caterers or culinary enthusiasts who might be interested in becoming the host of his or her own cooking show on the Food Network!"

Think you've got what it takes to become a star?

The casting call is set for 10 a.m to 3 p.m. on Sunday, August 22 at the Magnolia Hotel, 818 17th Street in downtown Denver. "We're thrilled to be coming to Denver and can't wait to meet the culinary talent in the area," Jemas says.

And we can't wait to see who shows up at the casting call.
