She wowed America’s daytime culinary queen. Now, Jenn Thomas hopes the EVOO encorsement will help her take her creations public.
Jenn Thomas likes to make stuff up: Rocky Road Overload Cookies, New York Pizza Pasta — the sort of dishes you won’t find in your mom’s recipe stash. Her innovative approach (and a killer lasagna burger) caught the attention of Rachael Ray, who invited the Cuyahoga Falls resident to take part in her “So You Think You Can Cook?!” contest. Thomas earned the top “yum-o” rating, winning a live cooking spot on Ray’s daytime show and a trip to an epicurean boot camp at the Culinary Institute of America at Hyde Park. We recently got the dish from Thomas about her cooking inspiration, if the Queen of Triscuits can really be that bubbly and what’s next on her menu.
