Sherry Yard is one of the judges in Food Network's reality competition series "Halloween Baking Championship."

A Brooklyn, New York native, Sherry Yard began her culinary career at the venerable Rainbow Room. She lived and cooked in London before returning to New York City to work the stoves at Montrachet and Tribeca Grill. She then moved west to San Francisco, establishing herself as a prominent pastry chef at celebrated Campton Place. Wolfgang Puck summoned her to Los Angeles where she became the executive pastry chef and partner for his worldwide operations. For twenty years, her innovative dishes and desserts were a staple at the Academy Awards Governor's Ball, the Grammy Awards and the Emmy Awards. Working with Wolfgang, she produced segments for his Emmy Award-winning cooking show, and later was tapped by Magical Elves Production Company for the role of executive culinary producer for "Top Chef: Just Desserts."

Yard serves as Vice President of Culinary Development for iPic Entertainment Group, where she leads culinary innovation. 2014 brought her first concept City Perch Kitchen + Bar — a seasonal American Dining Room, to Bethesda, Maryland. This local restaurant celebrates the bounty of the Mid0Atlantic, sourcing ingredients from nearby farms and waters. Next up, The Tuck Room gastro-lounge is slated for openings in Miami, Houston, and New York. This cocktail driven restaurant will showcase a progressive menu of small indulgent bites to shareable social plates. In 2016, Yard will revive the Los Angeles icon Helms Bakery as chef and owner. Helms will be revitalized into a multi-space operation, with an exceptional bakery, as well as various vignettes to cater to all hungry diners.

Throughout her career, she has earned the praise of her critics and peers with multiple accolades, including three James Beard Awards for the Foundation's prestigious hall of fame "Who's Who of Food & Beverage in America" for her significant contributions to the culinary profession, "Outstanding Pastry Chef of the Year" and "Best Baking Book."
