Alex was raised in New York City, around food, by her father John and mother Maria Guarnaschelli. Alex took her first steps towards cooking at the age of seven, while helping her mother, a famous cookbook editor, to test numerous recipes and edit cookbooks. Alex matriculated from college preparatory Horace Mann School and later enrolled at Bernard College, a private woman’s liberal arts college from which she graduated in 1991.

Her first professional assignment came soon after graduation when she began cooking under the tutelage of Larry Forgione, an acclaimed American chef and founder of An American Place, one of the famous New York City restaurants. Alex Guarnaschelli tempered her cooking skills in various prestigious restaurants in France, New York and Los Angeles, including her mentor’s An American Place, and Guy Savoy’s La Butte Chaillot in Paris. All these engagements provided the basis for Alex’s net worth.

Prior to landing as the executive chef of Butter restaurant, Alex worked at Daniel Boulud’s New York City restaurant Daniel, and afterwards at Joachim Splichal’s Patina in Los Angeles. She was also an executive chef at The Darby before its closing, a modern dining and cabaret concept based in “Big Apple”. Certainly, these ventures positively impacted on Alex’s fame and reputation, as well as her overall net worth.

In 2007, Alex Guarnaschelli took part in The Food Network’s “Iron Chef America”, but lost the competition to Cat Cora in “Ranchers’ Market Battle”. One year later, Alex became the host of “The Cooking Loft with Alex Guarnaschelli”, The Food Networks show in which she taught a small group of children how to make various classic dishes in a new way. She has also appeared in several more cooking competitions, including seasons four and five of “The New Iron Chef” and “Food Network Challenge Ultimate Thanksgiving Feast” episode. Apart from competing, Alex also serves as a judge in the shows Food Network Challenge and Chopped. Doubtlessly, TV appearances have helped her to add a great amount of money to her overall net worth.

Since 2009, she regularly stars in her own culinary show, “Alex’s Day Off”. In 2013, Alex published her first book, “Old-School Comfort Food: The Way I Learned to Cook”, mixing recipes with autobiographical details, and increasing her net worth even more.

When it comes to her personal life, since 2007 Alex Guarnaschelli has been married to Brendon Clark, an individual damage legal advisor, who she met while conducting a seafood class at the Institute of Culinary Education. The couple has a daughter.

Alex Guarnaschelli is very active and popular on social networks with over 410,000 followers.
