Utah chef Viet Pham, co-owner of Forage restaurant in Salt Lake City, will be a contestant on the ninth season of "The Next Food Network Star."

The show premieres June 2.

The 12 contestants, who were announced Thursday, will be judged by Bobby Flay, Giada De Laurentiis and Alton Brown. A "focus group" of food fans will also weigh in.

Pham, along with co-owner Bowman Brown, was named Best New Chef by" Food & Wine" magazine in 2011. Pham is no stranger to TV. Earlier this year, he beat Bobby Flay on an episode of "Iron Chef America" and last year, he was the runner up on "Extreme Chef."
