New Food Network show looking for chefs

Food Network is on the hunt for creative chefs to compete in a new cooking show.

Competitors will be tasked with grocery store challenges, with up to $20,000 on the line.

Some potential examples? Make steak and potatoes, only the store is out of steak and potatoes. Or whip up a delicious dinner for four with only $6.

"We're looking for chefs who can think out of the box and on their toes," said Jen Walsh, casting associate producer.

And they're looking for professional chefs of varying backgrounds - executive chefs at fine dining establishments, sous chefs at neighborhood joints, wedding caterers, etc. - right now. There are no open casting calls, rather, producers will conduct phone and Skype interviews with people of interest.

The show is currently unnamed, but based on the titles of some forwarded PDFs, we'll put our money on something like "The Great Grocery Games."

Check the flier for more details and email to apply.
