What is your earliest memory? For me, it’s food and cooking with my family. Helping my Mom in the kitchen, baking with my Grandmothers and always eating, eating and more eating. It is no wonder that my happy place is in the kitchen cooking for friends or in a restaurant eating a great meal. So much of our lives and our memories are attached to the food we eat and the meals we have shared with loved ones. It is time to make more memories and show off your culinary talents in the 8th Annual Hands-on Cook-off by Better Together BC.
