Meet Aarti Sequeira, the winner of season six of the series The Next Food Network Star, who beat out the other finalists Tom Pizzica and Herb Mesa. Apparently the accidental leak back in June was right! 31-year-old Sequeira, born in India and raised in Dubai, had a "culinary point of view" that incorporated Indian flavors into American classics. She also had a penchant to use the word "mum." Before the show, Sequeira was an active food blogger at aartipaarti.com (tagline: "eat. giggle. repeat.") and had a series of online cooking videos on YouTube. Her new cooking program debuts on the Food Network next week and will also be known as Aarti Paarti.
