Chef Scott Conant

Available for cooking demonstrations, live and virtual personal appearances. Chef Scott Conant has established himself as one of the country’s top chefs and restaurateur with a career spanning more than 30 years including multiple restaurants, an enthusiastic following of fans and an ever-expanding brand.

A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, Scott broke out onto the restaurant scene in his twenties, running the kitchens of famed Italian spots such as il Toscanaccio, Chianti and City Eatery, which earned glowing reviews under his leadership.

He officially put his name on the map when he opened the beloved L’Impero in 2002, which garnered a three- star review from The New York Times, the title of “Best New Restaurant” from the James Beard Foundation and praise from top publications such as Gourmet and Food & Wine, the latter naming Conant one of America’s Best New Chefs in 2004.

Scott has appeared on The Today Show, The Chew, CBS’ The Talk and Good Morning America; and hosts Season 2 and Season 3 of Best Baker in America while appearing as a co-host on Beat Bobby Flay and a regular judge on and Chopped, consistently one of Food Network’s highest rated programs. Most recently, Conant has moved from the judge’s seat to hosting Food Network’s new show, Chopped Sweets. He has also published three cookbooks: New Italian Cooking, Bold Italian, and The Scarpetta Cookbook.
