2007 Next Food Network Winner - Amy Finely

If you are like me and enjoy watching The Food Network just for the tips and new recipes then you may have heard about the Next Food Network Star.

This was the third season and the finale was this evening at 9pm eastern. After several tough challenges and even having been sent home in the last episode, only to be brought back after a finalist claims about his past were found to untrue. Amy Finely also known on the show as the Gourmet Next Door, was announced as The Next Food Network Star.

Aside from a 2008 Mercury Mariner, Amy, won the chance to host her very own show on the Food Network this fall. We can only hope for the best for her.

A little bit of informatin about the winner. Amy is a traveler who loves food. She attended culinary school in France (Gregoire Ferrandi's Ecole Superieure de Cuisine Francaise). A freelance writer who has authored a travel book on Italy, Amy wants to inspire viewers to cook simple, beautiful food. In addition to writing, Amy also works as a caterer and is a stay-at-home mom to her two children.

Amy was asked some time during the show why she should be The Next Food Network Star.

"I'm going to help people have more joie de vivre in their lives by illuminating the food culture of the ultimate romantic, glamorous, stylish, foodie city – Paris."

I can't wait to see her upcoming show this fall on the Food Network.

Her show will bomb. France, the Nation she worships and should MOVE to hasn't produced an innovative cuisine in 300 years.

By the way, the admission requirements to that "famous french cooking school" consists entirely of paying the fee.

It's basically a tourist trap.
