The Select Guest



Featured 9.5-9.11 | Amanda Freitag spends approximately 55 days a year making contestants on the Food Network's hit show, Chopped, believe she's a hard-edged, no nonsense, not necessarily fun judge. She spends the other 310 being her true self: bubbly, warm, fun-loving and generous. It's a dichotomy that serves her well as one of the most renowned female chefs on the planet, packing the one-two punch that's necessary to succeed in a field full of testosterone.  It's also what makes her one of the coolest chicks to hang out with. 
Welcome to Amanda's week.
