Whether you’re pairing a wine with your pasta, adding the perfect cheese to your hamburger, or choosing the perfect side dish for your favorite entrée, the culinary community has taught us that the best of food get even better when you put them together.
Now in its 11th season, Food Network Star is the perfect competition for aspiring chefs who are eager to show off their culinary skills and unique combinations as they compete for their very own Food Network series.
Of course, even a show like Food Network Star is better with the perfect pairing, and Volkswagen is thrilled to be the show’s official presenting automotive sponsor for the current season. Throughout the 11th season, you’ll see the utility of Volkswagen’s TDI lineup showcased in both the network show and the corresponding web series.
During the “VW Challenge” episode this season, competitors highlighted the Passat TDI, Golf SportWagen TDI, and Touareg TDI during a variety of culinary challenges. With EPA estimates of 44 mpg, 43 mpg, and 29 mpg on the highway,* respectively, these clean diesel models are up to the challenges that come with just about any vocation.
Fans will also enjoy seeing the Golf SportWagen TDI once again during the “Star Salvation” episode of the Food Network Star web series. During this segment, eliminated contestants will compete for a chance to return to the main series and gain redemption.
As Vinay Shahani, Vice President, Marketing, Volkswagen of America, Inc. says of the company, “Our efficient, spacious and powerful TDI Clean Diesel models stand ready to rise to the utility and performance demands of the busy contestants.”
Of course, you don’t need to be a professional chef to enjoy the benefits that come with Volkswagen’s TDI technology. These powerful and efficient models are perfect for your own errands, including trips to the grocery store to get the goods for your favorite homemade meal.
Food Network Star is airing now, culminating in the season finale on Food Network at 9PM on August 16th. If seeing these incredible vehicles in action has gotten your attention, then we invite you to schedule a test drive with us or to call the Pohanka Volkswagen team at (301) 808-7100 today to learn more about your favorite model!
