    I got so sick of the Canadian cold, I moved down to Charlotte just to avoid the snow. And of course to join the My Fox Carolinas family as a Digital Journalist. I grew up in Calgary (think the Houston of Canada) and after graduating from Carleton University with a Bachelor of Journalism, I moved to Toronto to cover sports; which in Canada means hockey.

Charlotte, NC - Sharp knives, hot stoves and some hungry judges. The Iron Fork Competition isn't for the faint of heart.

Chef Alyssa Gorelick of Alyssa's kitchen knows that being a chef means you're always under fire, especially when you're a woman in an industry traditionally dominated by men.

Being the first female to compete in the competition didn't stop Gorelick from bringing her 'A' game as she competed against four other Charlotte chefs for Iron Fork Honors.

The chefs; Geoff Bragg from Lulu Dine & Wine, Aaron Rivera from The Chrome Toaster, Luca Annunziata from Passion8 Bistro and Troy Galiardo from WCCB News Rising, sliced, diced and sauteed along side Gorelick in the timed event.

The chefs were given 10 minutes to gather food from the "pantry" and then they were each given an hour to cook and present their food to the judges.

Gorelick would emerge as the Iron Fork Champion, but after hours of cooking and raising money for children's charity Ace and TJ's Grin Kids, it's safe to say all the competitors earned a celebratory drink.
