Duff Goldman is engaged to girlfriend Johnna Colbry… and proposed to her using butcher’s twine
Celebrity chef Duff Goldman and girlfriend Johnna Colbry announced their engagement on Monday.
Goldman, 43, took to Instagram to hearken the news, saying that as he went about his normal day on Sunday, he had an epiphany in regards to his feelings for Colbry, 24.
‘I was shaving my head when like a mule kick to the heart I realized that I am absolutely in love with Johnna and I can’t imagine living another day without her in my life,’ the Ace of Cakes personality said. ‘She is kind, funny, smart, beautiful, cool, wise, and sexy’ and ‘a tempest of feeling.’

The Detroit native said he acted on strong emotion in his decision to pop the question to Colbry, who works in retail.
‘I didn’t plan this out, it just happened,’ he wrote, ‘and it was so glaringly obvious that I couldn’t have stopped it if I wanted to.’
The veteran chef said that he ‘asked her to marry me’ and ‘she said yes.’
Due to the spontaneous nature of the proposal, however, Goldman said he had to improvise using materials from the kitchen.
The twine that binds: Goldman did not have a ring on hand when he decided to pop the question, so he improvised with a strip of butcher’s twine

‘I’m sorry I didn’t have a real ring,’ The Food Network personality wrote. ‘I hope you don’t mind butcher’s twine, I am a chef, after all.’
He and Colbry, who have been together since 2016, posted the same shot on Instagram of them holding one another’s hands with the strip of twine tied onto her finger.
‘I’m so crazy about you @duffgoldman and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life going on adventures with you!’ Colbry wrote, calling Goldman her ‘ride or die,’ ‘forever muffin’ and ‘buffalo.’
