Next stop for Baltimore’s Duff Goldman (Charm City Cakes, Ace of Cakes) is on the Food Network’s Iron Chef at 10 p.m. Feb. 6. The baker goes against chef Michael Symon, owner of the well-regarded restaurants Lola and Lolita in his hometown Cleveland.
Duff will be put to the test with sweet and savory dishes. As the Food Network press release says, "Will he withstand the heat of Kitchen Stadium, or will he feel the singe of defeat to Iron Chef Symon?" Stay tuned.
In a not-so-positive ranking, New York Times writer Jon Caramanica recently called Ace of Cakes the worst reality show out of 348 on The Awl website. (You have to scroll to the bottom of the post to get his verdict on Ace of Cakes.) His fave: The Bachelorette (season 5). You be the judge.
