Georgia’s Story: After her dad passed away when she was young, Georgia and her single-mother had to support each other. They connected through cooking the recipes her auntie sent them – especially cornbread!
Proudest Moment: When she was able to run the meat station by herself and have a blast! She also enjoyed experimenting with flavors with her mentor Chef Troy, adding hot spices and chocolate to cookies.
Future Goals: To go to a culinary arts school to get a degree and make her way up to being a head chef, maybe one day owning her own soul-food restaurant!
“This was the first opportunity I had to get a taste of what working in a real kitchen is like. The kitchen is where I want to be.”
