With another chance at stardom on the line, Food Network Star Comeback Kitchen takes on dinner of the decades. Which one of the six remaining chefs will achieve redemption?
The dream of being a Food Network star is still alive for these previous Food Network Star contestants. After tackling their Achilles heel in the first challenge, the chef-testants are ready to take on the next challenge. The chance at stardom is in their grasp, but can they hold onto it.
According to the Food Network, this week’s episode tackles dinners of the decades. The synopsis states:
"For the Mentor Challenge, the competitors each take on a forgotten pantry ingredient and perform a live web stream, demonstrating how they used their ingredient in a creative and modern way. For the Star Challenge, the finalists go head-to-head, traveling back in time to a past decade and working with the tools of that era to create a decade-appropriate dish. After each alumnus presents their dish to co-hosts Valerie Bertinelli and Tyler Florence, another competitor is sent packing."
Being a Food Network Star is a unique combination of food authority and appealing camera presence. Many of these Comeback Kitchen contestants lacked the balance to achieve the desired stardom. A chef can create the most delicious, impressive dish, but people must want to watch her cook too.
Based on this week’s synopsis, the chef-testants will have ample opportunity to showcase their point of view, culinary ability and camera readiness. The creativity of reinventing ingredients and classic dishes appeals to food television enthusiasts. While some creations may not be practical for the home cook, the challenge can spark ideas. Who knows what they will create and are you willing to watch?
Ready to tune into the comeback. Here’s how to watch the next episode.
One returning chef-testant will gain a spot on Food Network Star. Who’s ready for their close-up?
