HEAD COOK: Kara Arendsen

COMPETITION: World Burger Championship

QUALIFYING EVENT: World Burger Championship

My name is Kara Arendsen, From a young age I really enjoyed baking. I was thrilled to accept my first job as a bakers apprentice when I was just 17 years old. After working at the bakery I decided to try out other professions but always kept baking as my favorite hobby. Nearly 15 years later I am now a hairstylist...about as far away from a professional cook as you can get! I have since expanded my foodie repertoire to include all things cooking and grilling, but I can still bake a mean cupcake. As an Italian woman there is nothing I enjoy more then honoring my roots by feeding the people I love a fantastic and healthy meal. I can't wait to share my passions at my first World Food Championships. Mangia! Mangia!
