    Looks like a lot of fun! Unfortunately my cooking is typically fueled by a 80 proof companion (at least) and don't feel comfortable competing with others. Congrats on your results!!

    How about some info on the mini apple pies? Good job bringing the next generation into the cook.
    It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.

    Man that is awesome! I would love to compete some day, and to place your first time out is amazing. Did you do a lot of test cooks ahead of time and have a honed strategy going into it or did you just use a favorite go-to recipe? Would love to hear about it!

    Competition takes some guts and plenty of effort!  Needless to say "plenty of money" too!  I have friends in competition cooking and it takes special people to do it !
