The Chew: Kelly Clark Bronze Medal
Three-time snowboarding medalist Kelly Clark brought her brand new bronze medal to The Chew’s kitchen for a slumber party, where she greeted the entire audience and The Chew crew, who were all clad in pajamas. She helped Mario prepare a Ricotta Salami Crepes Recipe as a delicious appetizer, lunch, dinner or a midnight snack.
Clark’s athletic prowess gives her a healthy appetite. She said that she enjoyed her time in Sochi, Russia, which was her fourth trip to the Olympic games. Carla, Daphne, and Clinton got to safeguard Clark’s medal while she was cooking.
Kelly Clark’s family owned an Italian restaurant, she she grew up in the apartment above the restaurant. That means she knows how to cook, though she spends most of her time training for snowboarding competitions.
