About this Article

A woman who is toying with the idea of heading to culinary school got a boost today when judges in the Cook of the Week Challenge deemed her recipes the winner of the Ashland Sausage Co. mini-ham challenge. With her Peach and Ham Quiche and Georgia's Cobb Salad, Mary Beth Thornton of Cary bested Elk Grove Village's Jamie Andrade, a two-time Challenge participant whose cheesy smashed tater tots weren't quite enough to wow the judges.
