Janene Holig, originally from Swanville Minnesota, is the most recent Minnesotan to compete in Food Network's hit show, Chopped.

The show consists of four chefs, competing in three different rounds. Each round features surprise basket ingredients which the chefs must use in their dish. At the end of each round, a chef is chopped until only one is left standing. The winner takes home $10,000!


Janene Holig was raised in Swanville, and currently calls the Minneapolis area home, and her episode of the show will air on April 16th at 8 PM.

Lucky's Saloon in Swanville is hosting a viewing party if you want to watch it in Holig's hometown! Party starts at 7 PM and you can RSVP to their Facebook event here! 

Minnesota produces some really great chefs, a few are in the running for James Beard Awards this year!
