Create Cooking Challenge 2017

The Create Cooking Challenge 2017 was a terrific success!

On May 22, APT announced the 18 winners of the national video contest for both professional chefs and home cooks to showcase their culinary skills.

This year’s edition garnered hundreds of submissions representing 80 different public TV stations. Buki Elegbede, the Grand-Prize winner from Greater New York, edged the competition with his take on chocolate whoopie pies. Chris Nance from Santa Clarita, CA nabbed second place with his technique for building a professional-looking graham-cracker crust. Elegbede and Nance will each receive funding and production equipment to finance and produce a web series for CreateTV.com.

Both received high marks from final judges Sara Moulton, Julia Collin Davison, Bridget Lancaster, Steven Raichlen and Kevin Belton.
