Making Life Sweeter, One Dessert at a Time


Hill Center is thrilled to welcome Chef Padua Player, also known as SugaChef, a talented and dedicated Executive Pastry Chef who has turned his passion for desserts into sweet, artistic success. Despite being the youngest of seven children, Chef Padua has found his voice and expressed himself through his culinary creations. His work has been recognized and praised by President Biden, and he has been featured on the Food Network, Cooking Channel shows, Platinum Weddings, Sweet Genius, Holiday Baking Championship, and Cake Hunters. Chef Padua’s talent and dedication have earned him prestigious accolades, including winning the 2013 Capital Food Fight’s High Stakes Cake Battle in DC, hosted by Duff Goldman. He has also returned to the competition as a celebrity judge in 2014 and 2015. In 2020, Chef Padua faced his ultimate fears and competed on Food Network’s Chopped, Sweets. Additionally, Chef Padua is currently working on his first cookbook and continues to provide his sweet delicacies to numerous celebrity clientele. Through his unwavering determination and commitment to his craft, Chef Padua Player has not only found his voice but has also become a shining example of how passion and talent can lead to sweet success.
