HEAD COOK: Jennifer Beckman
COMPETITION: World Sandwich Championship
QUALIFYING EVENT: 2013 World Food Championships
I am a passionate competitive cook, having won the Sutter Home Build a Better Burger contest , the Mezzetta Make That Sandwich competition, the National Cornbread Championship, the Crisco Mediterranean Inspirations Recipe Contest and the Mama Mary's Pizza Creations Contest. I've competed in the finals of the Gilroy Garlic Cookoff, the Pillsbury Bake-Off, the Good Housekeeping Cook Your Heart Out Cookoff, and the National Beef Cookoff. In my professional life, I advocate for sustainable food at a national non-profit. The rest of my time is spent puttering in the garden, refereeing rounds of full-contact Uno with my kids, and cooking for my family, friends, and community, bringing people together over fresh, wholesome food.
