Television audiences first met celebrity chef Antonia Lofaso in 2008 on season four of Bravo’s hit show, Top Chef. Two years later, Antonia returned to Bravo to compete on Top Chef All-Stars, where she fought her way to the finals. With that same skill and determination, she’s now building a brilliant career that exceeds her own expectations; and she’s doing it all while balancing the pursuit of her professional dreams and the demands of single parenthood.
Soon after graduating from the acclaimed French Culinary Institute, Antonia landed a coveted position in the kitchen of Wolfgang Puck’s famed Spago in Beverly Hills. Later, she was tapped by SBE Restaurant Group to serve as Executive Chef for the launch of their Los Angeles supper club.
While she was in the process of developing the restaurant’s new menu, SBE executives suggested Antonia audition for Top Chef. It was the beginning of a new phase in which she would combine her culinary expertise with a growing interest in the world of entertainment. Since venturing into television, Antonia has also spent time behind the camera working as Culinary Producer for various shows, including America’s Next Great Restaurant.
In addition to her restaurant and television experience, Antonia has served as private chef throughout her career to many of Hollywood’s A-list elite. She currently serves as Executive Chef for Black Market Liquor Bar, also in Los Angeles.
Antonia has been profiled in numerous publications, from People, Parade, and the Los Angeles Times, to Bon Appétit and Cookie magazines, including an appearance on NBC’s Today show. She regularly uses her celebrity status to contribute to fund-raising events, such as the GE Women’s Health Forum, and the St. Croix Food and Wine Experience. Antonia is a consistent fan favorite at Top Chef events in cities across the nation.
With thoughtful planning and strong ambition, Antonia continues to push the boundaries of her career in both culinary arts and entertainment. Her first book, The Busy Mom’s Cookbook, will be published by Avery, an imprint of Penguin Group USA, in August 2012.
