If you like cooking shows, you can check out what local Chef Chris Kyler has got on the season 10 premiere of "Food Network Star" on the Food Network at 9:00 Sunday night.
He's got a mobile business in north Stafford, that serves our region, DC and Maryland, but lives in Falmouth.
The now 32 year old has been cooking since he was 18, getting his training in the Navy, and says food is his passion. Kyler spent a brief time in the corporate world, but missed the kitchen. WFLS asks him for advice to give aspiring chefs of food tv stars. He says, "it's not all glitz and glam and a flash of the cameras. Cooking is hard work and being a chef is about a 60 hour a week career, often in not so ideal working conditions." He knew that he wanted to do more, so started exploring what kind of tv show competition was out there. Skyler says he's a chef and a bit of a comedian, which went a long way. He went to the casting call for "Hell's Kitchen" before, but got cut during the last round. A few weeks later, the Food Network called him to ask if he'd like to try out for a new show, "Cutthroat Kitchen," last year. He ended up winning and says it was amazing. He recently did more research on shows and ended up getting picked for this Sunday's "Food Network Star" episode.
