The Plating Society has been bringing the fine dinning experience to WNY through private dining experiences, take-out, meal prep, cooking classes, pop-up dinners and more. Now you can catch Executive Chef Darian Bryan and Sous Chef DuWayne Harding as they make an appearance on The Food Network. The best part is, you can catch them not only once, but twice this week on two different shows! Here’s what we know:

“The four competing chefs must haul in big carts for a big breakfast buffet. Then, they ditch the surf and double up on turf when Alex Guarnaschelli challenges them to create “turf and turf” dishes. The day finishes off with a cherry on top for one chef as judges Nacho Aguirre and Antonia Lofaso choose the winner.”

The Episode: Season 2, Episode 8, “Drop the Clutch from First to Third” 

“Chef Cliff Crooks offers guidance to three chefs who need to pick up the pace to excel… DuWayne recently changed careers when a death in the family sent him back home. He needs Chef Cliff to help set him up for success in the culinary field so that he can provide stability for his family.” 


In a statement from Chef Darian he says, “On behalf of my Sous Chef DuWayne and me, we are grateful to be representing Buffalo, our Jamaican culture, and love for cooking on the big stage this week. We’d like to thank our families, clients, and our community for supporting us on a daily basis. It has been a rough week and a half for us here in Buffalo and we are just grateful for these opportunities. We hope that you will tune in, lett’s gooo!”
