It feels like the Food Network has more stars than the Milky Way these days, but that's not stopping them from rolling out another round of their mega-hit Food Network Star. Though Season 7 just wrapped last week, they're already holding a Season 8 casting call in L.A. on Friday, August 26th.

Everyone's invited to try out: chefs, line cooks, home cooks, caterers and even "culinary enthusiasts." But if you don't want to piss off judge Bobby Flay, remember one thing:

"Don't even show up unless you really know how to cook," He told us in a recent interview. "That to me, as a chef and as one of the judges, is the most important thing. If you can't cook, I'm not going to let you go far."

Interested parties who don't fear the wrath of Flay should head over to the Marriott Burbank Airport hotel between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. For more information on what to bring and who to ask for, click here.

    In Los Angeles especially, but increasingly across the country, restaurants are either switching to tasting menus, putting a greater focus on a tasting-menu option (while offering à la carte items as well), or opening as tasting-menu operations from day one. The format that used to be the calling card of only the fanciest of restaurants is becoming ubiquitous, even at places where the waiter calls you “dude” and there isn’t a white tablecloth in sight.
  • Milo's Kitchen: A Treat Truck for Dogs
    Milo's Kitchen, a part of California-based Big Heart Pet Brands, is taking its homestyle dog treats on the road this summer with the "Treat Truck." The dogified food truck is making stops all over the country, ending up in New York early September. The truck stopped at Redondo Beach Dog Park Friday morning entertaining the pups with treats, a photo-booth and play zone. Milo's Kitchen Treat Truck offered samples of the line's six flavors, all with chicken or beef as the first ingredient, and all made in the U.S.A. with no artificial colors or preservatives.
