I received something fascinating in my email bucket earlier this afternoon. While it is definitely not something I would be interested in (or for that matter, even watch), I figured I would pass along this nugget of information for those more impressed with the notion of having their own Food Network show than I am. I guess I should be flattered enough that the FN thought that little 'ol me would have a big enough influence on potential local candidates to include me in on the fun. There were two attachments to this email that I didn't include in this posting. If you are interested, email me and I'll send you the entire message, attachments and all.
I am a casting assistant for The Next Food Network Star, Food Network’s hugely successful culinary reality series.

We are currently casting for the 2011 season and would like to inform you and your readers that we are holding an open casting call in Cleveland on Monday, September 20, 2010.
