PhoenixBites Interview With Erika Rumsey


PhoenixBites: Of all your favorite meals, what one dish would you like to learn to master?

Erika Rumsey: I would love to learn how to cook lasagna! I love Italian food and tried to make this dish for the audition and it was a complete disaster!

PhoenixBites: Is there a person (chef, home cook, family member, etc.) that has inspired you to sharpen your culinary abilities?

Erika Rumsey: My grandmother is a fantastic cook and I would like to carry on her legacy. We have a family cook book that I have yet to contribute to.

PhoenixBites: Any advice you can give to our readers who may be beginners in the kitchen?

Erika Rumsey: Organization! Cooking can be really stressful but if you have everything you need in front of you and organized, then it will make the experience more fun and relaxing.

Set your DVRs! “Worst Cooks in America” airs on Sunday evenings at 9pm ET/PT on Food Network.
