Best of luck to our 2021 competitors!
Emily EllynChef and culinary educator Emily Ellyn, is the Home Economics teacher you’ve always wanted! She single-handedly started the Retro Rad cooking movement - encouraging everyone to dig through their mom's recipe box, dust off their pressure cookers and crockpots, and take the old and make it new. She takes the retro, remixes it, and makes it RAD.
With her quirky persona and trademark cat-eye glasses, Emily travels the world doing cooking demos, working with brands and product endorsements, lecturing or hosting special events, and doing consulting work - all while developing her Retro Rad culinary TV career and finishing her Ph.D. in Food Service Education. Through it all, she’s gained a loyal cult following. You’ve seen her on Food Network’s “Food Network Star,” “Cupcake Wars” and morning news shows across the country, as well as a cameo cartoon appearance on the “Simpsons!”
