Sugar ‘n spice but not necessarily everything nice is what’s in store for us in Season 2 of the Food Network’s Spring Baking Championship. Eight chefs will put on their Food Network colorful aprons to compete in 6 episodes for a cash prize of $50,000. Sunday at 9pE.
This season’s contestants come from small town USA, Ipswich, NH to the big windy city of Chicago, IL and everywhere in between. Women and men contestants are evenly split although the three chef judges, who are back from Season One, include one dude – Duff Goldman and two women – Nancy Fuller and Lorraine Pascale.
We hope contestants were inspired by the creativity of Season One Spring Baking Championship chefs. Executive Pastry Chef Dwyane Ingraham’s recipe for Strawberry Blueberry Rhubarb Pie was such a hit we asked if he would share… which he graciously did for us. Check Chef out on Twitter @Diningraham83
