Each star will have an experience unlike any part they have ever played, finding out if they have what it takes to make it inside a professional kitchen. Chefs Vinny Dotolo, Susan Feniger, Marcus Samuelsson, Michael Voltaggio, Dakota Weiss and Geoffrey Zakarian will each mentor and attempt to teach one of these famous foodies the main ingredients needed to create restaurant quality dishes. Tune in to find out which stars shine brightest when the Star Plates are served beginning Tuesday, September 27th at 11pm ET/PT on Food Network!

The culinary industry is one of the toughest, and now these celebrities are testing their talents and cooking skills in the hardest place of all, a commercial kitchen, where every dish they serve must be up to the chefs’ high-quality restaurant standards.

On the premiere, actress Mindy Kaling partners up with Marcus Samuelsson at Red Rooster in Harlem, New York, to make one of her favorite dishes, the signature Fried Chicken Royale.

Over the course of the six episodes, sportscaster Erin Andrews will find herself in a whole new ballgame in downtown Los Angeles at Susan Feniger’s Border Grill, as she is forced to step up to the plate and service the ultimate lunch rush. Alyson Hannigan will be out of her element at L.A. eatery Ink when Michael Voltaggio teaches her some unusual cooking techniques using liquid nitrogen and blowtorches.

Skills and friendships will be tested when Colin Hanks learns that there is no palling around in Vinny Dotolo’s kitchen at Animal, and in West Hollywood at Estrella. Busy Philipps will try not to crack under the pressure of executing Dakota Weiss’ signature egg and avocado dish.

Things also get bittersweet for Minka Kelly as she gets a lesson at Georgie in Beverly Hills on chocolate soufflé from Geoffrey Zakarian. Throughout the season, the stars will try to impress their mentor chefs, but their toughest critics of all are actually waiting in the dining room ready to dig into their Star Plates.
