HEAD COOK: Heather Manley
COMPETITION: World Barbecue Championship - IBCA Division
Heather's looking forward to her 4th visit to the World Food Championship in 2018!
Heather grew up in a foodie family and is obsessed with food, cocktails and creation. This passion to create sparked her to create Heather's Dirty Goodness, Inc., a spice company in Minnesota (www.dirtygoodness.com). All of Heather’s Dirty Good products enhance and highlight flavors of what they are intended to be paired with and many times, things they were not intended to be paired with. One thing is consistent, the rubs are damn good on everything. They have a mission to create rubs that consist of unique high quality ingredients, lower salt and high flavor. Mission accomplished.
Heather also owns Crooked Water Spirits, a nationally awarded spirits company focused on creating uniquly finished spirits such as bourbon, gin, vodka and a ready-to-pour elevated Old Fashioned.
Heather hopes that her spice line and bourbon can help her succeed at the 2018 WFC. Regardless, she'll still have a bottle of bourbon. Win Win.
