Last night Louisville's Damaris Phillips earned a spot on the finals of Food Network Star. If the Jefferson Community and Technical College culinary arts instructor bests the other two chefs in next Sunday's finale—and you can help her cause by voting here or calling 855-547-8271—she'll get her own show on the Food Network (which, coincidently, could use a new Southern chef).
Throughout the season, Phillips has been hosting viewing parties at Molly Malone's Highlands location. Here's a peek at last week's party.
