This fall it’s time to see which celebrities can take the heat in a professional kitchen on Food Network’s newest series, Star Plates, premiering Tuesday, Sept. 27th at 11/10c. The show will follow six celebrities as each navigates the grueling responsibilities of working as a line cook in his or her favorite chef’s restaurant. Working side-by-side with the chefs, the stars will learn how to make their favorite dishes and must help service a dining room full of hungry, paying customers. The restaurant novices will learn some unusual cooking techniques, make some of the chefs’ signature recipes and take criticism from both the chefs and the customers.

This season’s celebrity-and-chef teams:
Mindy Kaling at Marcus Samuelsson’s Red Rooster
Erin Andrews at Susan Feniger’s Border Grill
Alyson Hannigan at Michael Voltaggio’s Ink
Colin Hanks at Vinny Dotolo’s Animal
Busy Philipps at Dakota Weiss’ Estrella
Minka Kelly at Geoffrey Zakarian’s Georgie
