Chef Duff Goldman

Chef Duff Goldman founded his Baltimore based bakery, Charm City Cakes after discovering the time demands from his day job in the kitchen weren’t allowing him the freedom to try his hand at a new career: playing bass as a working musician in a rock band. As he and his team of friends and musicians gained national attention by pushing the boundaries of what a cake could be, Food Network soon tapped Duff and his staff to star in Ace of Cakes. After six years and ten seasons, the show is still wildly popular not only in reruns, but in over 40 countries worldwide. In 2011 the show saw its United Kingdom premiere draw record numbers for Food Network’s latest overseas venture: Food Network UK.
