The Food Network has certainly found its fair share of TV fodder from Valley restaurants; will it find a future TV personality here, too?

Maybe so -- the popular reality series The Next Food Network Star is coming to town July 8 for an open casting for its 2010 season.

"We are looking for people who are full of life, passionate about cooking, and knowledgeable about food to meet us in person at our open casting call," says casting assistant Nivale Lightfoot. "Please help us spread the word to any chef, home cook, caterer or culinary enthusiast who might be interested in becoming the host of his or her own cooking show on Food Network."

Do it! And get famous! And I'll write about you!

The event takes place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on July 8 at the Embassy Suites, 4415 E. Paradise Village Parkway. Here's the flyer:
