CHOPPED Contestant Jessica Chaney joins the NFWF for 2021

Jessica is a pastry chef who got her start in the kitchen cooking with her grandmothers. After attending culinary school straight out of high school, Jessica interned at Disney World, working at park restaurants, and has since been serving her creative masterpieces across her hometown of Detroit, Michigan.

In 2017, Jessica finished as runner-up on the Food Channel's "Chopped: Alton's Challenge" over a five (5) episode tournament where Alton demonstrated the science behind smoking foods, and contestants were encouraged to infuse their dishes with a smoky flavor.

As an icon in the Detroit Restaurant scene, Jessica has spent time in the kitchen at several local top restaurants throughout the city, including stints as the Pastry Chef at the award-winning "Grey Ghost" Restaurant, Executive Pastry Chef at Downtown Detroit's "Townhouse", and recently started her own side hustle, Boho Bake House, where she continues to serve up culinary masterpieces.
