Last night marked the premiere of the second season of Food TV's "The Next Network Star." And I was so pleased to see the Peninsula represented!
Although the web site says that Jess Dang is from Menlo Park, during the actual episode, it was stated that she hails from Palo Alto. (She also has a blog: The Petite Pig.) Sadly, she was eliminated last night after the cooking challenge.
The good news is, there's another Bay Area contestant to root for (Elizabeth from Sausalito). By the way, SIX of the eight finalists are from California. CRAZY.
