HEAD COOK: Shannon Kohn
COMPETITION: Bacon World Championship
I'm so excited to be competing in the Bacon World Championship again in 2018! I had a blast in 2017 and learned some valuable lessons. The best part, by far though, was meeting so many amazing people from all over the world who love food and competing as much as I do!
I've been entering recipe contests and competing in cook-offs since 2004, when I first was encouraged by my husband to enter the Pillsbury Bake Off®. The amazing experience I had at that first competition, coupled with seeing how many folks just like me were recipe hobbyists, led me to want to create more recipes and enter more competitions. I have made so many friends over the years who share my passion for food, and thanks to the opportunities afforded me by such great sponsors and contests, I've been able to travel to places and experience things I might not have been able to otherwise.
I am a three-time, consecutive Pillsbury Bake Off® finalist, and have participated in many national and regional food competitions. My recipes have appeared in local, regional and national publications, and I've even been on a few different Food Network programs over the years.
