Michael Strickler and Michelle Stoner entered the Create Cooking Challenge by submitting 2-minute videos. Michael said most of his cooking education is from television and that he entered the contest to share his love for cooking and the beauty of Alaska in a creative way.
Michelle learned to cook from her brother and continues her culinary education by taking classes. “I’m not afraid to try new things,” she said.
Although Michael and Michelle didn’t win the challenge, they made Fairbanks look good to the Create team.
