Contestant Chris Valdes, as seen on Food Network Star, Season 14.

The new season of Food Network Star is underway and there’s a familiar face from Miami in the mix – Chef Chris Valdes is taking on chefs from LA, Georgia, New York and more. The competition is intense, the culinary talent is incredible but it all comes down to who really what it takes to make it to the top. Bobby Flay and Giada De Laurentiis are back to give the fledging stars a little help in front of the cameras and in the kitchen. It’s not easy and Chef Chris is excited to get this shot.

But his talents don’t end in the kitchen; he loves to travel, act and create new and exciting recipes. There’s a great quote that sums his ambitions well from Chef Chris – “Food is amazing and I dare to call it one of the most precious gifts God has given us,” That will make our WORDS OF WISDOM FROM ANN KELLY’S KITCHEN for this edition.

Hear from Chef Chris and see if he reveals any tasty tidbits on the competition! Catch up all the chefs every Sunday night at 9. Good luck Chris and we’re all rooting for you!
