I received a message today informing me that a Ferko String Band member will be competing on All Star Academy on the Food Network tonight at 9pm. All Star Academy is a cooking competition where home cooks have a chance to be mentored by one of four renowned chefs and win $50,000.
Below is the message I was sent:
