Food Network’s Chopped to Feature Saguaro Corners & Mulligan’s Chef CJ Hamm

Tucson’s Food Network momentum keeps on growing.

Food Network cooking game show Chopped recently featured BOCA Tacos y Tequila executive chef Maria Mazon and Loews Ventana Canyon Resort executive chef Ken Harvey, but one more Tucson chef is joining the fray — Saguaro Corners & Mulligan’s executive chef CJ Hamm.

“Competing on Chopped was unique experience that I believe really showed me a different side of our industry,” Hamm said. “I am just thrilled I was able to add to the much deserved national attention that the Tucson culinary scene is receiving.”

Hamm’s episode will air 10 p.m. EST on Tuesday, February 27.
