HEAD COOK: Tina Zaccardi
COMPETITION: World Dessert Championship
I\'ve been baking for as long as I can remember, but it\'s been within the last 10 years that it has truly become a passion. I\'ve competed in many baking and cooking recipe contests and competitions. My first win in any baking contest was 10 years ago at a local Apple Pie contest, I took 2nd place. After that I was bitten by the competitive baking bug and haven\'t stopped. My most notable win was this past year when I won The Great American Baking Show: Holiday Edition Season 4. Since then I have been doing baking demonstrations, teaching classes and working on new recipes. I am so grateful to have met some many kind and wonderful people on my baking journey!
