Tammy Wood is a retail clerk from Chilliwack, B.C., currently living in Agassiz, B.C. The kitchen is her happy place where she finds tranquility and is inspired by the happiness that her dishes bring to loved ones. Cooking runs through her veins – as a young girl, she learned from her mom, grandparents, and dad, who was a professional chef cooking for hundreds of hungry men at a logging camp. An avid hunter and fisher, Tammy loves to cook with wild game. She has a large family and cooks for 35 to 40 people on every holiday. A mother of six, Tammy lost her husband in a workplace accident, and is a true survivor. She is prepared for anything that life throws at her, and wants to inspire her kids, other widows, and single mothers by her strength in the face of adversity.
Tammy is looking to get as much out of this experience as possible. She wants to gain culinary knowledge, technical aspects, and methods to really hone in on her cooking skills. Her food dream is to publish a female-friendly game meat cookbook that focuses on nose-to-tail cooking.
