Pearland woman ready to defend title as world bacon champ

“Now that Rebecka Evans has tasted victory as a “competitive cook,” she wants another helping.

This summer, Pearland’s “self-taught, stay-at-home-mom food blogger” is perfecting several new culinary delights, such as a bacon-bourbon cupcake, in hopes of retaining her title as the world bacon champion.

“The pressure is on,” said Evans, as other contestants “are coming for me.”

The cupcake, which features candy bourbon bacon and vanilla pastry cream, “is in the infant stages of recipe creation,” said Evans. “It is one of the recipes I’m working on for World Food Championship 2018,” a contest set for Nov. 7-12 in Orange Beach, Alabama.” By Don Maines Published 3:30 pm, Thursday, June 28, 2018

Press Release: Dual WFC Competitor/Writer Gets Blogger Summit Food Fight Right
Share: Posted Mar 22, 2016

NASHVILLE – No one would have blamed Rebecka Evans for cooking while distracted at the Blogger Summit that was part of the 2015 World Food Championships.

After all, a new grandson had just entered her world (her first after four granddaughters), and Blogger Summit planners were a little worried that the new little guy who stole her heart might detour her trip to Florida to not only attend the event as a blogger, but also to compete in the Bacon World Championship.

But there she was, part of the cadre of online food writers from points around the globe who came to get an up-close look behind the scenes of Food Sport’s largest event.

Little did Rebecka know she would find herself on the stage at WFC’s opening event/welcome party accepting the first place award in WFC’s first-ever Blogger Summit Challenge…READ MORE
