Meet a Chili Cookoff Judge!

"Urban Mason is my name and I was born in Dallas, TX, where I lived until the age of 11. In 1998 My mom's job transferred her to Gwinnett county where I have remained til present day. I am a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts. I did my externship at Country Club of Roswell and remained on staff for 9 years working my way up to Executive Sous Chef. In May 2016, I became the Executive Chef at Atlanta National Golf Club and I still currently hold that title and position. I would say my style of cooking is Upscale Southern Comfort with concentration in Cajun Creole. My mom is from Louisiana, so I do that region extremely well and with me being from Texas, I would also say that chili is an area I’m well versed in and I’ve also won a couple chili competitions myself!"
