This week on Food Network Star, we were asked to take a classic recipe and give it a runway makeover. Dishes like Beef Stroganoff, Chicken Pot Pie, Fish Sticks, and the long forgotten Tuna Noodle Casserole- that's what I got. Tuna Noodle Casserole, seriously? Each of us got a different dish to make over and we were to present the dish on the runway during fashion week.
Team Alton rocked the runway with Justin's crazy fashion spin on Beef Stroganoff which mimicked the square Damier pattern of a Gucci handbag, inspired by the lyrics of a rap song. Emily's Hats off to Ham and her edible ham "fascinator" headwear was a huge hit with the crowd. My own Tuna Noodle Casserole 2.0 was less fashion and more comfort food but was a very dressed up version of the original. Judson had a fancy bird's nest of crispy won tons on top of his dish... and looked so very fashionable with his bowtie on the runway.
Team Alton won the challenge and Justin won a $10,000 Discover Card for best interpretation of the challenge.
Here are a few of the recipes from Episode 4: Fashion Week:
