COMPETITION: World Recipe Championship

QUALIFYING EVENT: Just a Pinch - Recipe

By day, you can find me working behind a desk in the Administrative Division of a Parks and Recreation Department at a local municipality. By night and weekend, you will find me in the kitchen or outside at the grill, creating and testing new recipes. I have been entering cooking and recipe contests for about four years and am amazed at the wonderful opportunities it has afforded me. I have been published in numerous magazines and cookbooks, participated in the Tillamook Macaroni and Cheese Cook-off, Aetna Healthy Food Fight, Beringer’s Great Steak Challenge, Reser‘s Potato Salad Contest, 2012 World Food Championship, and New England Soup Cookoff. I have been extremely fortunate to have won The USA Pears Contest; The Chew/Bush’s Grillin’ Beans Grilling Contest; Fage Total Plain Kitchen Contest; St. Francis Grilled Cheese Contest; Ready, Set, Cook Hidden Valley Ranch Contest; Buitoni Supper Star Contest; and am a finalist in the Pillsbury Bakeoff, which takes place in Vegas right after the World Food Championship. From these contests I have been able to do things I would never have dreamed I would do. I have appeared on The Chew and cooked with Michael Simon; had a first class trip to NYC for a hands-on cooking demo/meet and greet with Bobby Flay; trips to Oregon Wine Country and Sonoma Valley and some nice cash prizes. One of the best things I have come away with is all the new friends I have made along the way, and I can’t wait to see so many of them in Vegas!
