Up against San Francisco's Tom Pizzica and Atlanta's Herb Mesa in the final challenge, Aarti's impressive pilot ultimately helped her win the title and her dream Food Network show, Aarti Party, set to premiere this Sunday, August 22nd at 12pm ET/PT.

On her new daytime series, Aarti invites viewers to join her for a playful Aarti Party, where she shares approachable and delicious ways to enhance American favorites with simple but unique Indian influences. Whether she's sprucing up everyday pulled pork sandwiches and perfectly roasted chicken or taking classic bread pudding and basic red lentils to new heights, Aarti cleverly combines the familiar with the exotic to create mouthwatering meals. No matter the occasion, Aarti Party promises great food and endless fun for home cooks everywhere. For more information, recipes, and videos, visit: www.foodnetwork.com/aartiparty.
