Abilene’s Elsie Stark finishes in top 5 of Kids Baking Show

ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – Abilene native Elsie Stark baked her way into the top five on The Food Network’s Kids Baking Championship, and her time on the show was just a drop in the bucket of the young baker’s talents.

Elsie started helping out in the kitchen at just a year old, when her older brother had started a food business.

Since then, the now 11-year-old has found his passion in the spoonfuls of sugar and the heat of the oven. Christi stark, Elsie’s mom, told KTAB/KRBC once Elsie wanted to start her own business, that was when they knew she was making it for the kitchen.

“When she was really like one, two, three she would help put stuff in the mixer, she would want to be a part of it all, and then as she got older, she wanted to do more of it on her own. “I think when she started her business was when we realized she really had a passion for it because it’s a lot of work,” Stark said.

Elsie’s Awesomes Sweets & Treats was launched in 2021 when she was only eight years old.

Ferguson is facing several charges, including burglary, strangulation and terroristic threatening, after he illegally entered a woman’s home on Jan. 2, theSt. Matthews Police Department said in a statement.

“In all our cases, we try to be transparent with the public and media,” the police department said in a statement, according to WHAS11, a local news outlet. “Given the sensitive nature of domestic violence incidents and the fact this is still an open investigation, we are restricted in the details which can be released regarding the circumstances and information about the victims.”

The woman said she lost consciousness during the attack and alleged that when she woke up, she saw Ferguson rip off her shorts. Police said Ferguson also took the woman’s credit card, debit card and ID before leaving her home.

Tiverton restaurant back in the spotlight on new Food Network show

TIVERTON – This past fall, Food Network crews craving a seafood feast were back in Tiverton.

Now, celebrity host and restaurateur Guy Fieri’s latest stop at Evelyn’s Drive In will make its small screen debut next week.

The Mayor of Flavortown first journeyed to the Tiverton seafood spot over 15 years ago, spotlighting Evelyn’s in a Season 2 episode of his popular TV series “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.”

Fare at the waterfront summer destination was deemed so memorable, it warranted the Food Network star’s return visit this past September for his spinoff series “Triple D Nation,” in which Fieri circles back to some of his favorite restaurants previously featured on “Diners, Drive -Ins and Dives.”

That footage will be included in Season 5, Episode 12 of “Triple D Nation” titled “From Steak to Seafood,” slated to air Friday, Feb. 9, at 9 pm on the Food Network.

Memphis restaurant StickEM featured on Food Network

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Memphis restaurant will be spotlighted on a popular Food Network show Friday night.

StickEM restaurant on Madison Avenue will be featured on Guy Fieri’s “Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.” Fieri made a trip to taste StickEM’s popular kabobs.

Friday morning, owner Ermyias Shiberou was hard at work preparing for a full house. Tables were empty, but at 8 pm Friday, they’ll be filled for a watch party.

“I kept getting emails that I thought were fake but I finally responded and went from there,” Shiberou said.

This comes a week after Memphis soul food queen BJ Tamayo and her restaurant Alcenia made their second appearance on the show. Tamayo also appeared on Food Network’s “Chopped.”

“It was kind of nice to be acknowledged for something I love doing and it was a good opportunity to represent me, my family, and the city,” Shiberou said.

It’s not easy to maintain a restaurant, especially for nearly a decade. Just last week Memphis culinary legend and “Chopped” champion Chef Tam announced his Memphis restaurant closure.

“Not having revenue, not having staffing, closed for bad weather,” Shiberou said. “And we’re still here.”

Several Memphis restaurants featured on Food Network

Restaurant owners say with the national spotlight comes a boost in revenue.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — You don’t have to look too far to find a good restaurant in Memphis, and the Food Network is once again taking notice.

In 2024, several Memphis restaurants have been or will be featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives: Triple D Nation.

On Friday, Feb. 9, you may have seen Chef Betty Joyce “BJ” Chester-Tamayo serve Guy Fieri a fish sandwich at Alcenia’s on Triple D Nation.

“I have people coming from London saying, ‘I saw you on there,’” said Chester-Tamayo.

She takes pride in her restaurant and its customer service.

“You come in a stranger, but when you leave Alcenia’s doors, we’re all family,” said Chester-Tamayo.

She is no stranger to the spotlight. She has been on Food Network several times and said each time she saw an uptick in restaurant customers and online merchandise sales.

“Valentine’s Day was one of the busiest that I’ve had in a long time. We sell products online, so I’ve had several different orders, some as much as $200. And I know because it happened right after the show,” said Chester-Tamayo.

And she isn’t the only one.
