Congrats To Lee Ann Whippen on Five-Figure Potato Salad Win & More


What would you want to bet you can win for really good potato salad? Would you guess $10,000? Us neither, but Lee Ann Whippen of Chicago Q has the cash in hand to prove it; she took first place in that category at the World Food Championships in Las Vegas this past week, as well as second place in the cream cheese potato salad category (which you will not be shocked to learn was sponsored by Philadelphia Cream Cheese). And these aren’t the only things she’s won lately; the week before her competitive barbecue team placed tenth of 86 competing teams in the overall competition at “The Jack,” the Jack Daniels 2012 World Championship Invitational Barbeque in Lynchburg, Tennessee.
