Heading Up the 2014 What the Fluff? Cooking Contest Judges:
Mari Levine is a Senior Editor at America’s Test Kitchen Online Cooking School, the food blogger for JewishBoston.com (Did you know Fluff is kosher?!) and an occasional contributor to Serious Eats. Until now, she’s only eaten Fluff recreationally, but has spent her entire life training for her foray into professional judging.
Kate Shannon is a former line cook and cheesemonger and a current member of the tastings and testings team at America’s Test Kitchen, where a typical day might find her sampling cheddar blindfolded and eating five types of cake all before 10am. Though she grew up in a Fluff-less household, she often traded lunches with a middle school classmate who always brought Fluffernutter sandwiches on a hamburger bun.
NASA astronaut Sunita Williams calls Needham, MA home so she’s grown up on the deliciousness of Fluff. She’s now spreading that love across the globe, serving up Fluffernutters in the International Space Station. Who knows, will beings from outer space stop by, intrigued by this exotic Marshmallow Fluff.
