Is your kid a budding pitmaster? Are they ready for primetime? Then check out this casting call email we got from the people behind a forthcoming Bobby Flay Food Network show. We’ve bolded the pertinent section below. It looks like they’re open to talented teenage gastrokids and their parents. Unfortunately Desi and Violet are still too young to be promoted beyond the cold prep station in our kitchen, tho the other day Vi deftly soaked a cedar plank in water for 20 minutes. But that doesn’t necessarily make for thrilling TV.
GRILL IT! WITH BOBBY FLAY ON THE FOOD NETWORK!
Are you a Master Griller? Are all barbeques held at your house? If you’re a serious griller (charcoal or gas) and have the skills to prove it, then live out your culinary fantasy on Bobby Flay’s new half hour GRILL IT! series on the Food Network.
To apply, please create a 3-minute VHS Tape or DVD in which you cook us your favorite dish. Tell us how you created the recipe and the ingredients you use. All applicants must have a terrific personality and must illustrate why you’d make a fantastic candidate for GRILL IT with Bobby Flay! Unlike “Throwdown with Bobby Flay” there’s no winners or losers, instead GRILL IT! shows people how to grill with a well-stocked kitchen.
All applicants must live in the U.S and be 18 and over (although quick-witted teenagers with parents’ permission can apply).
To be considered, please mail your submission tape, original recipe and photo of yourself to the address below no later than March 15th.
