Memphis In May World Championship BBQ contest!

Memphis In May World Championship BBQ Contest!

MasterChef Winner

Now, in Memphis, that line means a lot to all of us! Memphis is the best for Blues and BBQ.
I mean if you don't know anything about BBQ, you best MOVE.
It is that serious. Even Veggies have to be smoked and sauced!

Memphis in May is a month long festival that celebrates Music and BBQ and Soul Food.

I knew I wanted to be a BBQ Judge when I was like 5 and after I went to White House, they let me take the Judge's Class, so I would be prepared when they asked me to be a Judge.

Now this is an honor for anyone and I took the job super serious! I brought my A game and tried to be as serious as all the people in the room.

Believe me they were not too easy on me - standards are high, they went from Suspicious to Curious to Respectful to Happy!

I ate. I judged. I upheld the long line of BBQ lovers and hopefully made Memphis proud.

I know you may not understand the depth of the Honor I was given, but trust me I did!
All I can say the food was good. ok, out of this world! I judged exotics, beef, seafood, RIBS, and WHOLE HOG! I mean The Shed won the entire thing, I might have helped judge that!

Thank you Memphis in May and Thank you Judges. It was an honor to sit with you!

Love the Cabbage Leaf,

Bam! Cooking for Make-A-Wish!

Cooking a 12 top with

Felicia Suzanne was just - WOW!

Ok, Memphis, if you have not tried Felecia Suzanne your missing something special. Chef Felicia was Emeril's Bam apprentice and she runs one of the tightest kitchens in Memphis. She is in the kitchen expatiating and really working the line. 

I loved it!

She invited me to do a fund raiser Dishes for Wishes and tossed in this exclusive dinner in her kitchen. Now most Chefs try too keep folks out of the Kitchen but Chef Felicia opens hers up on a regular basis and it is entertainment to the max.

She let me make up some menu items and BAM! we were off! 

Winner Master Chef I am not going to talk much but let these pictures speak for me! 
If you missed it you missed a TREAT!

I, then went back a few weeks later for the Dishes-For-Wishes main event and I had even for fun. Cooking and Serving and helping wishes come true. If you don't know Make-A-Wish provides wishes for kids who are sick. I mean how cool is that.

If Felicia Suzanne ever offers me the chance to work in her kitchen I assure you I will say YES!
