Meet the All Stars - Antonia Lofaso

Perhaps a bit of a sleeper in the first few episodes of her season, Antonia finally hit a winning streak before ultimately being eliminated in Puerto Rico for poorly-cooked pigeon peas! Pigeon peas!

Antonia helmed Foxtail, the upscale supper club in Los Angeles, as Executive Chef and, for six years prior, worked at Wolfgang Puck’s Spago under the mentorship of Executive Chef Lee Hefter. A single mother living in Los Angeles, Antonia comes from an Italian background where she cooked with her mother and worked in her father’s restaurant. She went on to refine her cooking skills at the French Culinary Institute and graduated with a command of technique that landed her positions with catering companies and fine dining restaurants. Currently a national spokesperson for such companies as Stouffer's and Sara Lee, Antonia is working on a cookbook with over 100 recipes geared towards busy mothers with tips and suggestions from her own experiences and the those of celebrity single moms.
