HEAD COOK: Diane Roark
COMPETITION: World Dessert Championship
In 2021, I finished 5th at World Food Championship in dessert.
In 2019, I finished 4th in dessert.
In 2018, I finished 5th in dessert with my second perfect score on my structured dish, a tart.
In 2017, I finished 3rd in dessert with a rare perfect score on my structured dish, a Caramel Apple Swiss Roll.
Four years of WFC competitions, four top-five finishes in dessert, and two rare Perfect Scores at the World Food Championship.
Baking birthday cakes for kids who might never receive one is what I love to do.
I am trained to be an E.A.T. (Execution, Appearance, and Taste) certified food judge with the World Food Championships.
My family has always accused me of being "crazy competitive," and now I am thrilled to have an outlet for it with Food Sports competitions and WFC.
I am an extreme competitor in every sense of the word. I work hard, practice hard, constantly take classes, and always do my absolute best. My saying is, "Do Your Best and Let God Do The Rest."
