When Isabela on Grandview’s Executive Chef Jacqueline Wardle competes on the Food Network’s Cutthroat Kitchen
on June 21, viewers will learn just how far she’ll go to create fine food.
Wardle caught the attention of the show’s producers through an Instagram photo that showed the duck specialty she created for the Mt. Washington restaurant’s menu. The producers selected her to join three other chef contestants from across the country to the challenge.
Wardle, an alum of The Art Institute of Pittsburgh's culinary program, will attempt to prepare the tastiest dish while outsmarting her competitors. In addition, she’ll be handed $25,000 and the opportunity to spend that money on helping herself or sabotaging her fellow contestants.
"I enjoyed everything about being on set, meeting Alton Brown and competing with other chefs on a national level," said Wardle.
On June 21, fans can stop by the Bigham Tavern in Mt. Washington beginning at 9 p.m. to meet Chef Wardle and to see the show broadcast at 10 p.m.
