Local Chef Finalist in Food Network Competition
After launching her own catering business in 2009, Chef Suzanne Rockwell has experienced a lot of success. From being the private chef for the Colts and the Pacers to doing cooking segments for Channel 13, Rockwell has been able to share her talents and skill with Indianapolis. Now, Rockwell will have the chance to show her skills to the world as a potential competitor for the Food Channel’s Guy’s Grocery Games featuring grandmas who are professional chefs. The competition will require the chefs to make a dish out of a list of items that they will only have a limited time to collect from a grocery store.
“I did not apply to be on the show, they actually found me from just a Google search,” said Rockwell. “I am completely self-taught too, so when the Food Network calls it is pretty exciting!”
Rockwell has already made the final cuts and has completed multiple interviews. Now, it is left up to the show’s producers to decide who will make it onto the show. If Rockwell makes it, she will fly out to Los Angeles in March of 2016 and compete for the chance to win $20,000. But instead of pocketing the money, Rockwell says that she would donate all of it to charities including Harrison Hill Elementary and local food pantries.
