Essays on People's Platelist Finalists

Although Gary suffers from diabetes, high blood pressure, and the pressures of raising a small child, he still wakes up at 5 a.m. 6 days a week to open the family diner to which he is the head chef. He has many recipes that would definitely be in the running for this contest but his potato salad takes the cake. He created it while looking for a side to have during a family barbecue. But the salad was so tasty and light that I'm told the next morning the family got up and had a bowl for breakfast! Later in the afternoon they fried fish and decided to finish off the potato salad with it and realized it tasted even better. That's where the everything potato salad was born, because the ingredients tasted so good with everything.

I believe not only his authentic ingredients but his love and dedication to his customers sets him apart from any other chef in this contest. Thanks for your time and consideration
