This southern belle visited the Epicurean Theatre last year and produced an amazing cooking class and a fun book signing!

At twenty two, Whitney won the show “Masterchef,” gaining the title of Fox’s first U.S. Masterchef. Soon afterward, Whitney obtained her degree, with an emphasis in nutrition, from the University of Southern Mississippi.
