HEAD COOK: Ann Jones
COMPETITION: World Dessert Championship
My humble beginnings started on a stool, cooking next to my mom at a very young age. She taught me to make apple pie and as I look back, that was the beginning of my love of cooking. This will be my 6th years at WFC. We are called "Mom's" because my mom, Rebecca Reece, loved WFC, she was slated to compete in 2014 but Pancreatic Cancer stole her opportunity. Me, my sister and Aunt cook every year in her honor and memory. In 2017, our team was so proud to bring home the WFC Dessert "Champ" title. No matter the outcome, it’s always about the journey with my family.
