I sometimes cooked salmon for my mom, and I was pretty good at it. One day, I saw an email about the competition on my mom’s phone. I showed my mom and joked, “I could be in this competition.” The next thing I knew, I was submitted to the competition. After that, I practiced making my main dish and rehearsed talking to the news. On the day of the cook-off, I prevailed!
I won first prize in the annual John’s Incredible Kids Cook-Off!
