HEAD COOK: Louise Jensen
COMPETITION: World Dessert Championship
I am a nurse from Billings MT that likes to bake. I competed at the World Food Championships last year and took 12th place overall under my husband BBQ team name "Smokin Jerks". This year I won 1st place in the Taste of America Challenge for the state of Montana.
My husband has been competing in BBQ competitions for many years and I compete in the "other" category by submitting a desert as part of his team (when they have an "other" category). I usually enter a cupcake of some type. In 2017 I took 1st place at the Montana BBQ Cook-off, with my desert (with a perfect/perfect score of 180). This will be our second year competing at the World Food Championships! We have judged at three World Food Championships over the past 4 years (we missed going in 2016). We enjoy watching the teams cook...especially the desert and BBQ categories. I like watching the teams create beautiful deserts.
I took Wilton cake decorating classes at Michael's Store over 10 years ago. I have been baking cakes, cupcakes, and cookies for friends, family and co-workers since then.
My husband and I are certified KCBS BBQ judges and will take EAT judging class this year at the WFC.
My husband (William) and our daughters (Amber Wivholm & Malea Jensen) will be cooking with me this year.
We are looking forward to competing again this year.
