Washing dishes at a small restaurant at the age of 13, Chris Santos was surrounded by tough, confident chefs who inspired him to pursue cooking as a career. He enrolled in Johnson and Wales University in Providence, RI, and, upon graduating, traveled around Europe and the United States to better understand different cultural cuisines.

Upon his arrival in New York, following a stint in Boston, Santos began cooking at the Lafayette street institution Time Café. He was appointed the role of executive chef at the young age of 23, at 'Suba,' which is where he began his mostly “self-taught” education that has led him to his approach and style today. He was both Chef and partner at 'Wyanoka' before opening 'The Stanton Social' in New York’s Lower East Side in 2005. Chris has been a judge on FN's "Chopped" for the past three seasons.

Siblings Melissa and Joey Maggiore are the stars of Food Network's new show, "Family Style," premiering on August 26th at 10:30pm ET/PT. Despite approaching life in completely opposite ways, this “odd couple” of the restaurant world, share the same goal: to make their new Italian restaurant, Tommy V’s, in Carlsbad, Calif., a success. Melissa, a hard-working traditionalist, can find it challenging seeing eye-to-eye with Joey, a wild card without a filter. While trying to pull off everything from speed-dating events to extravagant wedding rehearsal dinners, Joey can drive Melissa crazy with his pranks and antics, but at the end of the day, these talented restaurateurs pull through together in true Family Style.

Plus Jeff Siegel and Sonia Hunt.
