My latest competition takes me to 6th place in top #10 at the World Food Championship, Las Vegas Nevada 2014

One of the biggest cooking competition in the world! To be able to compete in this time of competition you have to have previously qualified for a specific category through recipe competition. This year I qualified in 3 different category with my wins in the previous 12 month period. Dessert, Recipe and Seafood category!!Of Course seafood is my favorite food to cook I wasn’t about to pass this opportunity and gave me the opportunity to compete with 48 other competitors in seafood category all but 5 were all professional chefs so I had to represent the Tampa Bay area and my town of New Port Richey, FL as a home cook! It was my second year in a row in qualifying to compete at the World Food Championship! I can’t wait for this year it’s going to be here in Kissimmee, Florida. I was also asked to do a seafood cooking demonstration while I was there competing. Here are some highlights of my experience!

  1. So proud of you Josee! What is their reasoning behind having home cooks compete against chefs? Doesn’t seem like a fair playing field to me. So who was your helper? A friend or someone assigned to you? Thanks for posting this on your blog

    • I like it because I am against professional chefs I competed with 48 and 5 were home chefs that includes me the other 43 all professional chefs and 2 of us home chefs make top 10 the other 8 professional 😉 it goes to show you if you can cook you can cook .) Next year I’m going there to win the whole thing lol
