HEAD COOK: Hidemi Walsh
COMPETITION: World Seafood Championship
Japanese housewife who moved all the way from Japan to marry to my American husband 10 years ago. Even though I have no culinary education and experience, I have strong passion about cooking and enjoy to cook/experiment in my kitchen everyday. As a being Japanese, I almost always add my country's/ mother's flavor to any kind of dishes which turn into unique or new yet so flavorful delicious dishes and I believe this is my advantage. I compete lots of recipe contests. I am very competitive and love challenge because it motivates me a lot and make my life exciting and adventurous. I lost my parents 3 years ago. I compete for my parents to make them happy and be proud of me competing against many talented home cooks and professional chef, not just prize.
