She’s been cryptically tweeting about it for a while, and now Grub Street can confirm that Julie Elkind, the kickboxing, pâte-à-choux-wielding 25-year-old executive pastry chef at ESquared Hospitality Group, is the fifth cast member of the reality TV show coming soon to E! that will give us such a close look at Todd English’s professional and personal life that your corneas scorch in 30 minutes or less. Elkind and English join Anna Boiardi, author and heiress to the Chef Boyardee brand, and also twin brothers (and Toy proprietors) Derek and Daniel Koch for what promises to present a comprehensive view of the restaurant industry.
