SA's own Nacho Aguirre, the chocolate master behind Délice Chocolatier & Patisserie, appeared on Food Network’s new competition show Candy Land this weekend, working with network personality Aarti Sequeira to determine which teams advance down the life-size board game path.

Aguirre is no stranger to the heat of a Food Network competition show — in 2018, he was crowned the winner of the network's Spring Baking Championship and was asked to return as a judge for the Girl Scout Cookie Championship in February of this year.



The new show, crafted after the iconic Hasbro board game of yesteryear, features five teams of cake and sugar artists who aim to journey to the candy-themed areas of the game while presenting themed sugar masterpieces for Aguirre and Sequeira to judge.

The teams — of course — face confectionery curveballs as they attempt to make it to King Kandy's Castle to win the game and the grand prize of $25,000.



The two-hour debut of Candy Land aired Sunday, November 15, at 8 p.m. on the Food Network, and will run for six weeks.
