Baltimore's Duff Goldman ("Ace of Cakes" on Food Network) is the Celebrity Chef of the NHL Winter Classic. If you've ever watched the show, you've seen the Charm City Cakes crew has made several hockey cakes and even made a wedding cake to look like Lord Stanley's Cup for fans of the Washington Capitals. Watch the video and you'll recognize the voice as none other than Wes Johnson! [VIDEO].
Duff is often seen wearing a hockey jersey on his show so it doesn't really surprise me that Duff would be interested in participating in the Winter Classic. I didn't know that a celebrity chef was part of the festivities or why it is really necessary, but it works for me.
Turns out that Duff played hockey in high school and college (University of Maryland-Baltimore). He also did a "Hockey Fights Cancer" PSA in 2008.
Duff has introduced three of his favorite receipes for the Winter Classic and a fourth will be out on Friday, December 31. They all sound great and can be made up pretty easily.
Recipe 1 is "Dig It Out Of The Corner" Nacho Casserole
Recipe 2 is Classic Wings - 2 ways. Duff makes up a "Spicy Heinz Ketchup Marinade" for Penguins fans and "Sweet Donkey Spicy Elephant Wings of Political Harmony" for Capitals fans.
Recipe 3 is "Cold-Weather Chili"
If you're not going to the game, what will you be making for the Winter Classic? Enjoy.
