When 'The Next Food Network Star' wrapped last Sunday, Indian-born food blogger Aarti Sequeira was overjoyed to see her portrait pop up beside the channel's veteran celebrity chefs. Now she's set to debut the first season of 'Aarti Party' this weekend. Already! Just a week after we found out she'd even have a show! And what a perfect title! Sorry ... it's tough to wrangle the enthusiasm when we're talking about such a vivacious, well-spoken chef who also happens to have bragging rights as the Food Network's first Indian cuisine specialist.

After the jump, enjoy our video interview with Aarti Sequeira, who tells us who makes her the most starstruck, what she'll be cooking up on 'Aarti Party' (with a recipe for you to try) and the one celebrity she'd love to cook for!
