School has never smelled or tasted so good. That’s right, 10 home cooks go back to class at the Food Network – All star academy. These 10 cooks will compete for a seat in the classroom of some of the world’s greatest chefs. Chefs Bobby Flay, Alex Guaraschelli, Curtis Stone and Michael Symon, will each choose two cooks to guide and tutor through some incredibly tough culinary challenges. These cooks will being doing their best to impress not only their mentors, but, also a panel of guest judges. Donatella Arpaia, Elizabeth Falkner, Amanda Freitag, Robert Irvine, Chef John Li, Simon Majumdar, and Geoffrey Zakarian will be passing or failing their work. The pressure is on for both mentor and student as each week one cook will be dismissed. The others will continue on until there are only two left. For their final exam, the last two cooks will compete to see who will be ranked at the top of the class. Not only will they have the prestige of being named number one, but, they will take home a $50,000 grand prize. School starts March 1st at 9pm ET/PT on Food Network. Don’t be tardy!
