So You Always Wanted Your Own Food Network TV Show

I just got an email from The Food Network asking if I knew anyone that wanted their own Food TV show.

I immediately thought "Hey I know just the person that might be interested: you."

Here is the email:

Hi Albert,

My name is Sabrina Bove and I work in the casting department for "The Next Food Network Star" and wanted to pass along some information. We are looking for people who have a strong knowledge of food and want to host their own cooking show.
Below is more info.

Do you think you have what it takes to be a TV star and host your own show on Food Network?


· Cooking Know-How: You can be self-taught or professionally trained or somewhere in between, BUT YOU MUST HAVE FOOD KNOWLEDGE!!

· Personality that Pops: Do people often tell you that you have the charisma and personality to have your own cooking show?

· Teaching Skills: Do you teach at culinary school or maybe a cooking class and want to bring those teaching skills to the next level? Do you have a clear point of view on food and want to teach America about it?

My comments:

There are probably two dozen people right here reading the Pizza Therapy Pizza Blog who would be great!

Just go for it,

pizza on earth,


P.S. Just thinking out loud: A Food Network TV show about pizza sounds very appealing to me...

Go Albert!

You have the personality and the teaching ability.

On the show, you'd have to be doing lots of stuff besides pizza.

Could be fun.

Yeah Albert - go for it! Why not?! You've even already got a perfect name for it: Pizza Therapy! Sounds like a food network show to me!

Too much pressure for me, I just took on a lease for a new living space that doesn't have a real kitchen in it, and that's about all the stress I can handle in itself! But it should be a good adventure!
