Hi there I'm Brittany!

I started Food Crush with the intention to show that cooking shouldn’t be overwhelming. I wasn’t always a foodie or even a decent cook for that matter.  Growing up I lived off store-bought freezer meals, drive-thru and lots of cereal. Cooking was just a thing my family never got into. Entering adulthood, my knowledge of cooking was using a blender. I lived off smoothies and non cooking meals like salads….I know what a snooze fest of a life. Don’t get me wrong I love food, I was just terrified to make it myself.

 

In 2019, I was 23 and decided that it’s finally time to learn how to cook so I applied to be on Food Network’s Worst Cooks In America. I was casted for Season 15 of the show and my life forever changed. If you haven’t watched the show {SPOILER ALERT} I was recruited by Tyler Florence and solely representing him in the finale. Where I developed, prepared and plated a three course meal for a panel of culinary experts in a blind tasting. 

Fast forward to 2020, less than a year later.  I worked up enough confidence to attend an open call to audition for MasterChef. (I know!!) Long story short, I somehow successfully passed through multiple tasting rounds held by Gordon Ramsey’s culinary team. Followed by making it to live cooking audition for Season 11 where I cooked, plated and presented a dish for Gordon Ramsey, Aaron Sanchez, Joe Bastianuch and Curtis Stone. Pretty much the most anxiety filled day of my life…

It’s safe to say I’ve come a long way from smoothies to grilling wagyu beef on national television and serving Gordon Ramsey live in the flesh. My point is…if I can learn how to cook SO CAN YOU and I’m here to help ya. 

FAQ

I come from a family of zero cooking, no family recipes, traditions, nada. I found myself feeling envious of my friends with parents that were amazing cooks and had timeless family treasured recipes. So I decided to start my own traditions and recipes for my future family.
