Food Network Grills Up a Summer of Delicious New Shows

With a new batch of shows about to come out of the oven, Food Network is greasing the grill with their new summer lineup.

For all the Chopped fans out there, a fresh spin on the classic cook-off is taking the summer by storm. Introducing Chopped Grill Masters Napa – where sixteen top-notch grillers head out of the studio and in to wine country with host Ted Allen for a special five-part tournament. The show starts Tuesday, July 5th at 10pm.

And if that’s not enough Chopped for you, there’s also a new edition of Chopped After Hours at 11pm, where the judges move from the table to the kitchen and take on the mystery basket ingredients to transform them into delicious dishes.

Host Geoffrey Zakarian is also back for another season of Cooks vs. Cons premiering Sunday, July 10th at 10pm. This is the show where amateur cooks compete against professional chefs in a blind test to see if they have what it takes to rival the best of the best in the culinary world. Can you guess whose dish is whose before the final reveal?

This summer you can also expect all-new episodes of Cupcake Wars beginning Monday, July 11th at 8pm. This season will feature celebrities competing in the Cupcake Wars kitchen, but host Jonathan Bennett is not giving them any special treatment!

If your favorite Food Network Star has already been eliminated, don’t worry. One eliminated Food Network Star finalist finds redemption on Sunday, July 24th at 8pm in the special Star Salvation when they get a chance to re-enter the Food Network Star competition. Then, Bobby Flay and Giada De Laurentiis introduce the next Food Network Star to America in the epic finale premiering on Sunday, July 31st at 9pm.

Food Network also dishes out prime-time premieres of Beat Bobby Flay, Cake Wars, Chopped Junior, Cutthroat Kitchen, Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and Guy’s Grocery Games.
