Local Chef to Compete for $10,000 Cash Prize in Upcoming “Chocolate Myths” Battle


Chef Deborah Pellegrino, Executive Pastry Chef for Harrah’s Resort and Showboat Atlantic City, will be appearing on the widely popular TV series Food Network Challenge. Chef Pellegrino will join three talented pastry chefs from across the nation for a “Chocolate Myths” challenge, where they will be tasked with modeling a chocolate creation after a mythical creature—and then bringing it to life.

“It was an honor representing Atlantic City on Food Network Challenge,” said Chef Pellegrino.  “It’s always a great time participating in exciting events like this, especially in the company of such talented chefs.”
