Hi, I’m Courtney, the creator (and author-photographer) of Cook Like a Champion. I share the title of cook with my husband Eric, the tech support-kitchen cleaner-proofreader behind Cook Like a Champion. We both love cooking, baking and entertaining, and we spend most of our spare time in the kitchen. When we’re not eating food, chances are we’re thinking or talking about it.
I started this blog in 2008 as a way to chronicle recipes I was making as a newlywed. Along the way, Eric became interested in cooking and baking, and we’ve been unstoppable ever since. Our palettes have grown and expanded the same way our confidence in the kitchen has. Neither of us has any training, but we do have a lot of experience (along with the burns and occasional failures that come with it). We love trying new recipes and techniques and are constantly pushing each other to do so. No matter what we’re making, we always have fun doing it. We hope this blog will help us continue to learn and evolve in the kitchen and encourage and inspire you to try new things.
We currently reside in Central Virginia and love all the wonderful foods and wines the area has to offer. We welcomed our first child, Clara, on March 5, 2012 and are enjoying every second with our newest kitchen helper.
And yes, our last name really is Champion.
