Food Network's CHOPPED
Season 49 Episode 8
It definitely feels good to have competed and win on a show that I have always wanted to be a part of. I went up against some very talented and amazing chefs! I appreciate everyone's support through this journey, but I'm not done yet!!! Stay tuned!
Chef Eric Marshall is a recent champion of Food Network’s Chopped, an esteemed private chef and culinary entrepreneur.
The kitchen was the hub of Chef Marshall’s home growing up, and his love for cooking goes hand in hand with his love for entertaining. He strives to perfect every aspect of the dining experience, serving audio and visual effects alongside his dishes to engage all of the senses. Chef Marshall trained tirelessly under celebrity chefs for many years to sharpen his culinary skills.
Chef Marshall’s all-inclusive dining experiences are popular with Hollywood stars, and he has cooked for many high-profile athletes and actors, including Lil’ Mo, Nipsey Hussle, Marcus Morris, Naturi Naughton, Nicole Beharie and Tyrese Gibson, as well as the cast and producer of Lee Daniels and Danny Strong’s hit television show Empire and the Broadway hit Lion King. He was previously a private chef to the Ambassador, Prince Khalid bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, of the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia in Washington, DC and he also served as a catering executive chef for Tyler Perry studios, as well as catered for HBO, Netflix and Squirrel Films.
An actor and model earlier in his career, Marshall’s love for the camera served him well on the set of Chopped. His creative self-taught cooking skills impressed the judges, earning him the title of Chopped champion in episode 8 of season 49.
Chef Marshall hopes to promote veganism and will be launching a line of kitchen utensils, in addition to having two cookbooks in development.
