Through the years she has continued to teach herself new techniques and experiment with flavours for her family. 

A frontrunner throughout the series, she created no less than 20 dishes in challenges presented by some of the biggest names in the culinary world. Kelsey's winning creations in the final were steak tartare canape, lobster/crab ravioli appetizer, crispy-skinned duck entrée and a blueberry lavender panna cotta dessert. She focuses on respecting ingredients for what they are, letting each shine on the plate, and bringing together flavors from many American cultures.
