Mia Chiarella is the Executive Chef at Mia Ristorante in Wildwood Crest and now she's also a contestant on ABC's 'The Taste.'

Meet Mia Chiarella, or ‘Chefarella’.  This isn’t the first time we’ve had someone represent South Jersey in food, Nicole Gaffney of Brigantine competed on ‘Food Network Star’ back in August.

This will be the second time Mia has received national attention, she once also appeared on ‘Kitchen Casino’ on the Food Network.   Good luck Mia, and we’ll be watching you Thursdays at 8PM on ABC!
