Lake Forest Park mom and soccer coach Alice Currah won $30,000 from her appearance on the primetime NBC show Food Fighters in the episode aired September 3.

The show features one home cook pitting his/her best dishes against five professional chefs. The home cook chooses five dishes, then cooks them one at a time against a pro. Each does their own interpretation of the dish. The competing dishes are served to a "dinner party" of randomly picked foodies from around the country. The dinner party votes for the winner of each round.

During the show, they indulge in friendly trash talk while the host runs to each one to show what they are doing.

This is not a good show to watch when you are hungry!

Alice's dishes were Clams in Curry Sauce, Black Cod and Broccoli, Pumpkin Pie, Chicken Wings, and Pork Fried Rice. Her pumpkin pie, wrapped in won ton and deep fried, won, as did her Pork Fried Rice which she cooked in traditional Korean style.

Alice's goal was to win enough money to take her mother back to Korea to visit family that she hadn't seen for 50 years, since she immigrated to Seattle.

The recipes and full episodes are online at the show's website. Alice publishes a food blog called Savory Sweet Life.

The "foodies" that judged the meals obviously did not have the sophisticated palettes necessary to appreciate Alice's cooking. I suspect they all drink boxed wine. She is welcome to cater a meal for me any day!!

One of the "dinner party" complained that her food didn't have enough salt!
