Goldman began his long Food Network career in 2006 with the hit series “Ace of Cakes,” following him and his team at the iconic Baltimore bakery Charm City Cakes.

“With this new deal, we’re expanding our collaboration with Duff and bringing more of his unique talents and expertise to our viewers,” Betsy Ayala, head of food content at Warner Bros. Discovery, said. “Food Network fans of all ages have come to recognize Duff Goldman not only for his impressive cakes, but also for his charming abilities as a judge across our sweets competitions.”

Goldman added: “To continue to be a part of the Food Network family after all these years is awesome. For me as a chef, Food Network is home. Baking for, inspiring, educating and entertaining audiences is what motivates me and being able to do this for many years to come is a dream come true.”

A bestselling cookbook author, Goldman will next be seen co-hosting the new season of “Halloween Cookie Challenge” when it debuts Sept. 25 at 10 p.m. ET on Food Network, followed by judging “Holiday Baking Championship,” premiering Nov. 6 at 8 p.m. ET. Both shows will also stream on Max and Discovery+.

Goldman is repped by Verve, Shotlandia Management and McKuin Frankel Whitehead LLP.
