"It was a blessing to be chosen for the 2015 MenuDirections Culinary Competition. After a quick meeting with the participants, I realized I was the only woman in the competition. From that moment I was determined to win! The competition went by very fast but my partner, Darin Leonardson, and I had a lot of fun, joking, singing and laughing. We made sure we tasted, timed, and cleaned everything along the way. After a great day of teamwork, our gluten free, fire roasted pork and mushroom frittata was named the winning dish (and me, I became the first female winner).”
