Home Cooks to Enroll in Food Network Chefs' All-Star Academy in 2015

In the brand-new upcoming series All-Star Academy, four teams of home cooks compete against each other with their chef-mentors at the helm.

Three Iron Chefs and a Level 4 World-Class Kitchen Inferno Gladiator, together Alex Guarnaschelli, Bobby Flay, Michael Symon and Curtis Stone, make up one of the fiercest foursomes in culinary competitions. And in the brand-new upcoming series All-Star Academy hosted by Ted Allen, they'll battle it out in the kitchen as mentor versus mentor with teams of shining home cooks.

Beginning in March 2015, 10 of America's most-skilled home cooks will make their way to Alex, Bobby, Michael and Curtis' All-Star Academy, where they'll be faced with rigorous kitchen challenges over the course of eight episodes. It's up to the mentors to support their team members as they face off in the contest, but the contest isn't just for the home cooks; with their own stellar culinary reputations on the line, Alex, Bobby, Michael and Curtis will want to guide their apprentices well if they want their team to make it to the end and one of their students to claim the $50,000 grand prize.

Stay tuned to FN Dish for more details about All-Star Academy, and mark your calendars for the series premiere in 2015.
