Omnivore - Atlanta cheftestant Ria Pell talks ‘Chopped’

IRL, ‘Chopped’ is hard!


Since 2011, 16 Atlanta chefs have competed on the Food Network’s popular cooking competition show “Chopped.” Of those 16, only five chefs have come away with the $10,000 grand prize. Chef Ria Pell of Sauced and Ria’s Bluebird is the latest cheftestant to join the ranks of Atlanta’s “Chopped” alums.
