Celebrity chef takes off in balloon over Walla Walla


Celebrity chef Maneet Chauhan chose the perfect weekend for her special appearance in Walla Walla.

The featured judge on the Food Network’s “Chopped,” had been scheduled to partner with the Marcus Whitman Hotel & Conference Center’s executive chef, Antonio Campolio, for a one-night-only dinner event tonight.

But as it also happens to be Walla Walla Balloon Stampede weekend, she was reportedly going to get a taste of Walla Walla’s adventurous side by taking flight today. That’s according to a post from the Walla Walla Valley Chamber of Commerce.

Chauhan is stopping in Walla Walla on a 20-plus city tour to promote her new cookbook, “Flavors of My World: A Culinary Tour Through 25 Countries.” She co-authored the book with Doug Singer, who is touring with her.
