A new Food Network show is casting, and looking for home cooks. It's a great opportunity if the following things are important to you:

1. Cooking.

2. Thinking you're better than everyone else.

3. Impressing Bobby Flay.

The show's casting flyer asks: "Is your house always filled with guests who are craving your amazing meals? Do you throw the best dinner parties in town? Are people always asking for your recipes?" It also says you have to be "fiercely competitive," and "truly believe that you are the best home cook around." In other words, this is a show for those annoying friends of yours who invite you over so they can show off their fancy kitchen and their impressive wine collection and snicker at you as you mispronounce the rare ingredients they incorporate into their snobby, delicious food.

Bobby Flay is involved. Oh, and you have to cook as a duo.

If this all sounds awesome, instructions on how to apply are after the jump.

To apply for an interview, email BobbysBestHomeCookLA@gmail.com with the following information:

· Your name & the name of your teammate

· Recent photos of you & your teammate

· A short bio on you & your teammate (relationship, occupations, etc.)

· Tell us why you are the best home cooks, please provide photos of your food

· Tell us about the best parties you've thrown

· Your contact information & current location

Deadline to apply in L.A. is Wednesday, July 25, 2012.

    At Ladies Gunboat Society, the new operation out of the restaurant that used to be Flores on Sawtelle Boulevard, the Hoppin’ John is served as an appetizer or a small plate rather than a side, and the price is the stuff of comedy.

    Malibu Pier Restaurant and Bar, with chef Jason Fullilove at the helm, is in the two buildings at the pier’s entrance that used to be Beachcomber Cafe and Ruby’s Diner. Those buildings, which have been overhauled completely, reflect both the pier’s 109-year-old history and the cultural import of Malibu itself.
  • The Tasting Menu Trend
    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.
