Troy Chef To Make Food Network Premiere

The chef/owner of The Illium Café in Troy, Marla Ortega will be a contestant on the Food Network series “Guy’s Grocery Games” on Sunday!

According to a blog on timesunion.com, Sunday’s episode is a Mother’s Day special, which is perfect for Marla because she’s a mother of two boys!  Nathan, age 8, and Alex, 20 months.

She must be super busy! Mom of two, chef, restaurant owner, and now TV star!

Ortega taped the show on a recent three-day trip to California.  In the show, she’ll compete in three rounds of cooking and shopping to win the title!  I can’t wait to see what happens!

There will be a viewing party starting at 7:15 p.m. Sunday at The Illium. The episode airs at 8 p.m.
