Hailed for his innovative designs, Pastry Chef Thiago Silva’s creations have served as jaw-dropping centerpieces on the tables of stars such as Sofia Vergara, Miranda Kerr and Carmelo Anthony.
In 2015, the Food Network aired its first episode of the popular culinary competition show CHOPPED, pitting four of New York City’s most renowned bakers and pastry chefs in a competition they dubbed “Baker Boys.” Taking home the win was Brazilian-born Thiago Silva, then the EMM Group’s Corporate Pastry Chef. Silva donated his $10,000 grand prize to Careers through Culinary Arts Program (C-CAP), an organization that was integral in helping Silva find his career path to pastry chef.
In addition to his success on Chopped, Silva has also won “Dessert Games,” a Food Network game show, was a finalist on Best Baker in America, and served as a guest judge on Netflix’s Sugar Rush. Silva now works at Chew innovation labs, working with top industry scientists to develop CPG products of the future. While at Chew, Silva keeps in touch with the culinary world by offering consulting services throughout the US and abroad.
