Chef Silvia Baldini, Founder of New Canaan, CT based culinary group Strawberry and Sage, will compete again on Chopped Champion, the Food Network’s hit series. On April 19st at 10 pm, Baldini will be one of the 16 returning champions chosen to battle it out for a chance to earn the Chopped Champion title and $50,000 in prize money. Four preliminary rounds will determine who gets a spot in the finale. But only one chef from among the four finalists will be named the winner.
No stranger to the Chopped kitchen, Baldini has come a long way since her appearance in 2015. She has been successfully growing her creative food group based in Ct, Strawberry and Sage, which combine her passion and skills from her previous advertising world and her new and beloved career as a trained chef. She has been busy working on several culinary projects, including a branding and advertising assignment to develop a concept for a new wine venture by Chef Henry Meer of former City Hall in Tribeca, opening in August 2016 in the World Trade Center Transportation Hub in New York, while also writing her first cook book based on her style and way of cooking, something she describes as Comfort Chic Food, or working on a series of award winning cooking videos for publications like Saveur Magazines, and making appearances on shows, as CTSTLYLE on ABC channel 8.
Win or lose, Chef Baldini is extremely proud and excited to be back in the Chopped kitchen and to be one of the only 16 chefs chosen by Food Network, among more than 250 other previous chef winners, to compete for the title of Chopped Champion.
