CRESTVIEW — An award-winning home chef has added a feather to her toque.

Sherri Williams, who won Crock-Pot's “Crockin’ in the USA” contest in December, started last weekend on a high note with a phone call from NBC.

“Someone from the 'Today' show called,”she said. “I had entered the ‘Chicken Wing Cook-Off.’ She gave me a call and told me I was one of the three winners. I’ll be going up there on Jan. 31 for a live airing on Feb. 1.”

The contest — which the daily morning chat show ran Jan. 8-16 — called on cooks to submit their favorite chicken wings recipes. Williams was among three winners selected for the trip to New York to share her recipe with a live national audience.

She won’t be entirely among strangers.

“The good thing about it is one of my foodie friends is one of the other winners,” she said.

After flying into New York, Williams will attend a rehearsal the afternoon of Jan. 31. The live show will be the next morning. Because she won't do the actual cooking, she had to ensure the recipe was precise.
