Local chef Myra Brown has chance to win $50K; vote now online

RESERVE — There is still time to vote today and get St. John the Baptist Parish resident Myra Edgar Brown into the Top 15 of the online Favorite Chef competition, giving her a shot at earning a $50,000 prize.

Voting for the Top 15 is open through 6 p.m. today, Feb. 25 at the following link: https://favchef.com/2021/myra-edgar-brown

Brown grew up watching her Creole mother and grandparents work miracles in the kitchen. After cooking her first spaghetti and meatballs dish at age 8, Brown began inventing her own decadent meals. To her, cooking is a form of art come to life.

The community has come to love Brown’s Creole chicken and sausage gumbo, jambalaya, catfish a’la crème, bisque and oyster dressing.

In the Favorite Chef competition, Brown has surpassed some professional chefs and owners of big-time restaurants.

“I cook with love and grace, and love cannot be measured,” Brown said.

Winning the $50,000 would give Brown the opportunity to open her own restaurant, further her education in culinary art and complete a cookbook to extend her legacy to her children, grandchildren and future generations.
The Favorite Chef competition is hosted by celebrity chef Eddie Matney and benefits Feeding America. Participants can submit a daily free vote using a Facebook login or choose to submit “hero votes” that donate $1 per vote to a nationwide network of food banks feeding the hungry.
