Duff was one of the judges on Aarti’s first episode of “Next Food Network Star” which was on the famous Santa Monica Pier. After the judging Duff commented to the Food Network brass that they shouldn’t bother with the remaining episodes because Aarti was his clear choice as the obvious winner. Turns out Duff was right. Aarti went on to be the “Next Food Network Star” !
At “Getting Our Just Desserts” Duff created cupcakes (as featured @ Cakemix) and also painted colorful original graffiti art works on the patio with food themes for the Silent Auction.
