The Prize of Cooking

HEAD COOK: Kim Banick

COMPETITION: World Open Chili Championship

QUALIFYING EVENT: World Open Chili Championship

My passion for cooking started with my parents who owned a restaurant and catering business most of my life. In fact my mother is 77 years old and still catering. One of my hobbies turned daily passion is entering recipe and cooking contests. I competed in the seafood category in the 2014 World Food Championships. Blogging about my adventures on my website, is a way I share my passion and recipes. Besides blogging, I also teach adults with developmental disabilities how to cook. Planning and preparing a meal is more than just food, it is a gift I can give to others that brings good times and lots of memories.
