As initially noted by Memphis Business Journal, Chef Jenn won Food Network’s recent “Cut Throat Kitchen” episode titled “The Rice Stuff.”

Filming took place in early January, but the episode aired three times locally during late spring. After being sought out by the show, she decided to take the risk and compete, despite other contestants being full-time restaurant chefs and the sometimes-tricky editing done in post-production.

As it turns out, the risk was worth the reward.
