I am Tudi Wilson, born and raised in Woodson, AR. I am the oldest of 4 and the only girl. I am also the oldest grandchild on both sides. I come from a long line amazing people. I was raised in a very close knit family who supports each other with no questions. I can truly say I’m blessed beyond words. I’ve had several jobs in all sorts of fields and gained skills from each one, I’m truly a Jackie-of-all-trades. I’m a blogger, published poet, spoken word artist, actress, cooking instructor and the list goes on. Of all the jobs, I’ve had none of them light my passion like cooking.
I excel at anything that allows me to be my creative self. I figure the worst thing I can do is hate it, and then I never have to make it again. But me being who I am, I have to fix it to make it to my liking. I am very competitive and hate to lose. My whole family cooks, and we EAT! The running joke in our house “Somebody has a bad case of “liketochew”” (LOL) We have food for everything, every joy, sadness and sometimes just because. Food is a great experience for me, it becomes a part of the story.
I was on FOX’s MasterChef season 2, I made the Top 38 (apron winner). Since then, I’ve started a cooking series on ehow.com. My current focus on finishing my children’s cookbook and my BBQ sauce line called Tudilicious (inspired by my name). Tudilicious is a gourmet line of fruit based BBQ sauce. Who knows where this food journey will take me? I don’t know, I can truly say I’m enjoying the scenery.
