Damaris Phillips

Who is the host of Southern and Hungry?

Southern spitfire Damaris Phillips won season nine of Food Network Star, leading the Louisville native to her own daytime series Southern at Heart; The Bobby and Damaris Show, which she currently hosts with Bobby Flay, and many other appearances on Food Network. She graduated from Jefferson Community and Technical College with a degree in Culinary Arts and then taught at the same school inspiring up-and-coming chefs to follow their dreams. One of five kids, Damaris learned to cook at an early age and was responsible for cooking one night a week for her large family. Damaris’ modern twist on Southern classics and her signature wit pack a one-two punch in the kitchen.  Her first cookbook “Southern Girl Meets Vegetarian Boy” will be published in October.
