Aarti Sequeira for winning The Next Food Network Star. Her cooking pulls from her heritage. She was born in India and raised in Dubai. Aarti has an online blog/cooking show called “Aarti Paarti.”
Look for her show coming to the Food Network in just a week. Crazy how fast they are going to push the show out. I really think the show will be good. She has star quality. My pick was Aarti but the if I was going to buy someones cookbook or TiVo the show it would have been Herb. I liked Tom but I would love to see him doing one of those shows that travels to different restaurants. Hopefully we will see all of them on the Food Network (or the Cooking channel).
