The Next Food Network Star" is Aarti Sequeira, "a former CNN producer who later trained at The New School of Cooking in Los Angeles, experiments adventurously with Indian flavors and incorporates them into American classics.

"She has taught at her alma mater and now has an online cooking show called "Aarti Paarti." Born in India and raised in Dubai, Aarti draws culinary inspiration from her cultural background, her mother and never-ending food experiments."

"The Next Food Network Star" is a show on the Food Network that pits chefs against one another for the prize of getting their own show on the Food Network. The contestants are not only judged for their culinary skills, but also for their media presence. Cooking is a learned skill, to be sure. Demonstrating cooking on TV in an entertaining way is its own art form

Aarti Sequeira, a personable lady with a natural screen presence, was an early favorite of audiences of "The Next Food Network Star," something she needed during the competition going up against some very skilled chefs.

The contest started with preparing and cooking a dish that "best represented who they are" and cutting a 30-second promo for their proposed Food Network show. Other episodes included cooking dessert treats; preparing a dish inspired by a classic film genre; cooking a dish with pepper to be included in one of Bobby Flay's restaurants; operating a lunch truck business on Venice Beach, Calif.; preparing a "retro dish" at Frank Sinatra's Palm Springs home; creating a "dinner for breakfast" meal; and preparing a dish based on "an emotion."

The final episode, in which Aarti Sequeira competed with two other finalists, consisted of cutting a pilot of their proposed Food Network show, directed by the incomparable Rachel Ray. Any one of the finalists could have been the Next Food Network Star, but, in the end, Sequeira triumphed. As someone on the show suggested, Sequeira could become to Indian cuisine as Giada de Laurentiis is to Italian.
