HEAD COOK: Eileen Budnyk

COMPETITION: World Open Chili Championship

QUALIFYING EVENT: World Open Chili Championship

I first got the contest bug after being selected to participate in The Beringer Great Steak Challenge, in Napa. I took 4th place, which was not so bad for my first rodeo! I appeared on the Today Show for a "Healthy Burger Challenge", that was fun! I was in the Resers Potato Salad Challenge, which was the warm up for the World Food Championships in Las Vegas two years ago, great fun! I enjoy cooking for friends, and doing a little catering on the side for people that I know. I have recently been trying my hand at baking, which is not my strong point, I'm improving. Food means so much to me, it reminds me so much of my mother, and the unconditional love that she gave. I hope I am imparting some of that love to the people that I cook for!!!
