Team Saucy Mama
HEAD COOK: Kim Banick
COMPETITION: World Seafood Championship
Returning for the fifth year in a row!! My passion for cooking started with my parents who owned a restaurant and catering business most of my life. In fact my mother is 80 years old and still catering. One of my hobbies, entering recipe and cooking contests has turned into a daily passion. I competed in the seafood category at the 2014, 2016 and 2017 World Food Championships and in chili at the 2015 World Food Championships. In 2015, my husband Mark decided to join me in the kitchen arena.
Delighted to say we placed 2nd in People's Choice Chili in 2015 and 1st place as the World Seafood Champion in 2017. The fun continued with the filming of the seafood category for a show on the Travel Channel called Best in Food, seafood episode.
Blogging about my adventures on my website, www.theprizeofcooking.com 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. Even better, I get to do all of this with my supportive husband by my side.
