Food Network Stars in the News. Plus Upcoming Appearances

Just a few updates regarding Next Food Network Star contestants recently in the news and making upcoming appearances:

Michele Ragussis has taken an executive chef position at The Pearl Restaurant in Rockland, Maine for the summer (Link).  I am guessing there is no way the Food Network to allow her to state it would be longer than the summer with Food Network Star still airing, but with the finale scheduled for July 22nd, I would assume Michele is not one of the finalists if she is taking this job.  I could be wrong though.

Food Networks Robert Irvine is headlining the first ever Florida Hospital Gourmet Soiree at Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando on June 3rd from 5:30pm-8:30pm.  Tickets for the event are $250 per person.  In addition to Robert Irvine being at the event, Food Network Star contestants Josh Lyons and Emily Ellyn from season 8 will also be among the 40 chefs in attendance.  For more info about the event, visit here.

Another June 3rd event featuring a Food Network Star contestant is in Richmond, Virginia.  Chef Malcolm Mitchell will be cooking a 5 course specialty meal from 6:30pm-10pm at Julep's restaurant.  Reservations are required and the cost is $120 per person (more info and menu details).

Malcolm Mitchell was also spotted at Top Chef's Mike Isabella's private party for his new restaurant Bandolero on Tuesday night.  Here is a picture with Malcolm, Mike Isabella and former Top Chef contestant Jennifer Carroll.
