Episode Description


Contemporary Functionality

Alton Brown - Ann Arbor, MI Nic Sims, an Ann Arbor, Michigan mother of two works as a personal chef for many families, is enrolled in a two-year culinary education program, and in the process of starting a catering business. With such a varied background in cooking, you'd expect her to already have a great kitchen, but her former one left a lot to be desired - it even had a toilet in it! See how Alton used his food smarts to whip her up a fun and functional cooking space.


French Country in Connecticut

Paula Deen - Mystic, CT When Shelly and Brian Brouwer purchased their home in Mystic, CT, they knew that its 100-year-old farmhouse kitchen was in desperate need of help. Thanks to Paula Deen's innovative design sense, they now have their very own modern day culinary retreat with French country accents.


A Grilling Oasis in the Desert

Bobby Flay - Las Vegas, NV David Gomez, a Broadway dancer and Pamela Stivers, his jazz-singing fiancee, left New York City for a new start in Las Vegas, but they hit the jack-pot big time when they won Food Network's All-Star Kitchen Makeover. Thanks to Bobby Flay, the couple's new outdoor kitchen includes a full bar, an entire area devoted to grilling, and even a fireplace!


A Kicked Up School Kitchen

Emeril Lagasse - Harlem, NY At The Children's Storefront, a tuition-free school devoted to the arts, 200 meals are prepared each day. Prior to winning the All-Star Kitchen Makeover, the school's cooking space had antique dishwashers, limited counter space, and a freezer in the basement. Thanks to Emeril Lagasse, the kicked up kitchen and cafeteria now have state-of-the-art appliances, ample space, and art-covered walls.
