About the Show

Home cooks from across the country are paired up with some of Food Network's biggest names — Alex Guarnaschelli, Andrew Zimmern, Curtis Stone and Robert Irvine — in the culinary competition All-Star Academy. Each home cook, with the guidance and support from his or her Food Network mentor, competes in intense culinary challenges. One by one, the home cooks are eliminated by special guest professors who determine which dishes are not up to par. One home cook will be left standing, winning bragging rights and a $50,000 grand prize.
