My name is Brittany Furbee and I am a home cook turned competitive chef from Morgantown, West Virginia. I leapt into the national food scene in 2017, when I was selected to compete on the Food Network show Cooks vs. Cons. Despite having no professional training, I beat two experienced chefs to win the show and a $10,000 grand prize. The experience set into motion a very exciting year for me that included winning a national recipe contest and competing in the world’s largest food sport event, the World Food Championships.
Since then, my life has drastically changed. I went from cooking meals at home for friends and family to traveling the country representing home chefs everywhere at various cooking competitions, serving as a celebrity judge at tasting events, and performing cooking demonstrations. Now, I even host my very own cooking stream on Twitch! It’s been a very fun (and tasty!) ride so far, to say the least.
Although my journey is just getting started, my lifelong passion has always been cooking and my success in the culinary arena has finally given me an amazing platform to share my experience’s with all of you. Be sure to subscribe below or follow me on Twitch, Facebook and Instagram for regular updates.
Thank you for being a part of my story and I can’t wait to see what culinary adventures come my way next.
