HEAD COOK: Randy White
COMPETITION: World Burger Championship
QUALIFYING EVENT: World Burger Championship
I'm inspired by food, and the power it has to bring people together. I'm an engineer and project manager by profession; however, my greatest passion is found in cooking. It's therapeutic, and brings me a great deal of joy. I love I'm able to connect and touch people through food in a way that no other conduit exists. I've been cooking for most of the last fifteen years; however, I began cooking competitively in 2010. It started with- ironically enough- a burger throwdown in my wife's old hometown. Her father called and asked me to come down and enter the competition so he could kick my ass. I accepted the challenge, went down there, and took first place. He took third :) I was hooked after that. The routine and the responsibilities of daily life have kept us from being able to compete as often as we'd like; however, I have a competitive BBQ team and we compete a few times per year in north Texas. I'm a member of KCBS, IBCA and also the recently-formed Steak Cookoff Association, or SCA.
