Lowcountry Wild Child
HEAD COOK: Shannon Kohn
COMPETITION: Bacon World Championship
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.
I took a few years off from entering recipe contests and competing at cook-offs, but now I'm back and ready to give it my all! I am SO HONORED to be representing The Minnesota Wild Rice Council in the Bacon category at this year's World Food Championships and CAN'T WAIT until November!
