Here's How Much Marcela Valladolid Is Really Worth

Celebrity chef Marcela Valladolid was meant to be a culinary icon. According to Food Network, she was raised by enthusiastic cooks in Tijuana, Mexico. Her love for food was undeniable and she decided to pursue a professional career in the food industry early on. She started off by working at a cooking school managed by her aunt in Mexico before deciding to study at the Los Angeles Culinary Institute. She followed this up by attending the Ritz Escoffier Cooking School in Paris where she got into the world of pastry-making.

Somewhere on this journey, she started her own catering business, worked as a Food Network host on the show, "Mexican Made Easy," and wrote several cookbooks. Her work has been impressive so far, but she isn't slowing down anytime soon. According to her Instagram account, she's drawn to teaching and has been hosting online cooking classes for her fans. She's also pretty active on social media where she regularly posts photos of mouth-watering dishes and updates from her life. But where does this leave her when it comes to her net worth?

Marcela Valladolid is doing well in the food entertainment industry

Marcela Valladolid is definitely a successful celebrity chef with a great track record. According to MD Daily Record, she is worth somewhere around $1 million. Being a television personality has been lucrative for her and being a part of shows like "The Kitchen" has helped her immensely. According to The Wall Street Journal, this wasn't easy to achieve and the chef spent 12 years trying to make her mark in the world of food television.

She faced several setbacks as well. For example, she had the opportunity to be a part of a new Food Network show in 2007 but she lost the part to a restaurateur called Ingrid Hoffmann. She was heartbroken and told The Wall Street Journal, "I haven't cried like that since I was a kid." Thankfully, other opportunities came to the chef who was ultimately hired to host the show, "Mexican Made Easy."
