Twitter Social Media Challenge: Food Network’s All-Star Academy /Week 7

Last week the Food Network’s All Star Academy went from five home cooks to four. The stakes grow higher for both mentor chefs and contestents as dreams are teased and broken.

Virtual tears were shed last week as Team Alex lost a strong home chef Sheri Williams (second on left above).

More hazardous turns as the mentor chefs were replaced by the chef who can do the impossible. Chef Robert Irvine’s job was to mentor ALL the home cooks.

Winner of the Twitter Challenge at 55 new followers is …  Vanessa Craig  @v_lovesfood. Congrats!

Many of All Star Academy’s live tweeting tweeples wished Sherri well and tweeted praises about her cooking talents.

The mentor chefs put heart and soul into teaching their home cook contestants. What we think is even more important and heart warming is the public encouragement from the mentor chefs to their mentees. Wonderful tweet from Chef Curtis Stone to Sharon Damante.

Did he do it? Did he really do it? Yup. Chef Flay spit out Sharon’s food. Is it authentic or bit for the cameras? Chef Curtis Stone tweets – “He was hamming it up for the cameras”

Love this tweet from Ted Allen – “Cook like you’re cooking at home. That’s how you crush it.” We RT (retweeted) and Chef Guarnaschelli added a comment “Only Way Faster. W/ AG yelling at u” Nice to see the chefs and host have a sense of fun.
