Who cares if you can cook? The Food Network wants to know if you can't.
Charlotte will be one of four cities where the channel is holding a casting call for a new competition show featuring the worst cooks in the country. Professionals need not apply – “no one who's a bad line cook,” says casting producer Alena Morrissey.
The other cities are New York, Los Angeles and Denver, said Morrissey. “(The) cities that have good culinary scenes where people like food but may not know how to prepare it.”
The show is looking for “disastrous home cooks” who will be taught to cook by professionals on the show. You can nominate someone, including a family member or colleague, but you have to come with them to the audition.
