Three customers each prepared a course for 50 people in the finale of Harmons’ Sliced home cook competition, which took place at a store in Salt Lake City on May 10.
A group of judges named Amy Johnson, who prepared pear pound cake with raspberry coulis and dulce truffle, the Harmons Sliced Champion, while dinner guests also chose her as the People’s Choice Sliced Champion.
The three finalists previously had triumphed in preliminary rounds in three categories: appetizer, entrée and dessert. In those rounds, Harmons took a cue from popular cooking competition shows by giving contestants a mystery box of ingredients and two and a half hours to put together a dish. Contestants could also use staples from the kitchen.
Johnson won $1,000 in cash and an appearance on a local television station. The three winners from the preliminary rounds received a $250 Harmons gift card. All 15 contestants got a Harmons gift basket.
