HEAD COOK: Lidia Haddadian

Born and raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Lidia's love for cooking began at an early age as she watched both her grandmas cooking and baking around-the-clock. Lidia has been cooking for family and friends for the last 33 years. She has developed her own cooking style which she refers to as 'ethnic comfort food w/ a twist'. Within the last 5 years, her passion for food competition has gained momentum. She recently hit her 46th contest win (November 2019) after placing 1st in the World Food Championship Recipe category, making it a two-time consecutive win as a WFC category winner. With hard work and strong determination Lidia continues to strive for excellence in her culinary journey.
